I'm not usually a big fan of sci-fi but I did enjoy this one, perhaps in large part due to the easy-going nature of Melech.

That kind of go-with-the-flow character who still has a touch of morals left despite his criminal life appeals to me.

Likeable scifi short that felt like a middle part of a longer story I'd missed out on. The rogueish characters and Wild West in space setting made it seem like a piece of Firefly fanfiction - not that that's necessarily a bad thing...
