#50: Twenty Ways the Desert Could Kill You, by Sarah Pinsker
Synopsis: A short snippet of meta-scifi and the deserts of New Mexico.
We left Baltimore five weeks ago. Mom came home early from her job at the space telescope. She said, “Pack your summer clothes and your five favorite things, Allie. We’re leaving on an adventure.” If I had known her idea of an adventure I might have packed better. I would have said goodbye to my friends.
