Excellent, entertaining story about a crew who are stranded on Mars with only hours of oxygen left, and no hope of rescue. When they do find themselves back on Earth, against all the odds, their problems are only just beginning, as they find out their future is constrained by events in the past and the conspiracy theories around them. Bound to appear in a Year’s Best next year.
