Short Fiction: “The Universe Reef” by Tobias S. Buckell

Jackson buckles his leathers tighter, and pulls on a fur. “The height causes that cold,” he shouts. “We’re like mountaineers!”

I want to flee the bitter cold and escape the wind, which seems to pierce my skin and scrub my bones. But I don’t want to miss seeing the Stone Table with my own eyes.
