Cat Sparks. All the Love in the World. (Years Best SF 16)

Originally in : Sprawl.

A post-apocalyptic Australia, with a community hunkering down to resist the potential threat from outside. There are interpersonal dynamics at work, as our protagonist finds herself no longer the object of her lovers’ affections. When a crisis needs someone to brave the dangerous lands outside of their small community, she follows, and finds out things are not quite as she had expected. Nicely observed characterisations.
