The story could use a few more words to flesh out the obstacle and solution. I was in and out of being "there", falling off a couple of times as I tried to envision the issue.

The main point of the story is carried through and delivered, in spite of the minor difficulties I had grasping details of the issue.

I'm on a Ray Daley mini-marathon today. You've noticed, right?

This story isn't one of my favourites but still an interesting idea. In space, loads of people die, but eventually someone has to come up with a life-saving procedure, surely?

This is ok, a bit lacking in narrative drive for me, but not bad. I do appreciate Ray Daley's snapshots of the future, though. Try some yourself.

Very cool little short story, reminds me of the days right after I discovered Analog, ages ago. Definitely worth a read, I am looking forward to the two additional shorts promised at the end of this one.
