An interesting short story featuring a maintenance crew, in a Mars colony, who work on The Machine. The writing is fantastic and I enjoyed the main character's splashes of humor. The story was confusing at times, but the characters were confused. It added to the suspense, in my opinion.

Great read, Janine!

At the moment, this story is exclusively available on Amazon.
