It's a hard life being a courier. Few can survive subspace travel unshielded for long. They call it the weird for good reason.



What is this about? I'm not really sure. I've always had a hard time writing sex scenes. Not enough practice I guess. As for inspiration? Well I read quite a few SF short story compilations and the common themes seemed to be sex, death and alienation. We're all adolescents at heart, obsessively masturbating in darkened bedrooms and not getting enough exercise. This is a homage to the teenager in all of us.
