Short, fairly limited story about a young woman with a terminal illness taking an off-world option to cheat death. It reads like a story from a magazine one or two levels below the standard of Interzone, with some slightly awkward writing and not quite enough depth in any area for the story to work well. The protagonist has a choice to make at the end, but the story is so short, and the character so roughly sketched out, which way the choice goes doesn’t feel important to the reader.
