Snow in the Desert by Neal Asher

A very good short story but, annoyingly, an unexpected re-read. I picked this up as a cheap ‘short read’ from Amazon without realising I had already read it in the collection The Gabble and Other Stories. Still it is a good read and classic (if short) Polity fare.

I’ve been an engineer, barman, skip lorry driver, coalman, boat window manufacturer, contract grass cutter and builder. Now I write science fiction books, and am slowly getting over the feeling that someone is going to find me out, and can call myself a writer without wincing and ducking my head.
