Past Imperfect (short story)

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.


After overcoming a traumatic past, Katya’s worked hard to get where she is – on Mars. She and her fellow colonists escaped Earth just as a deadly pandemic took hold. And now her life is … not what she anticipated.


It’s difficult to put a finger on why it doesn’t quite meet her expectations. She has great friends, an exciting career, and an ex-girlfriend who – Katya’s sure – wants her back. 


But is everything as it seems?



Past Imperfect is a short story set during Livid Skies, SI CLARKE’s forthcoming second novel. It’s written for people who like a little mystery with their science fiction.
