An unsuccessful terraforming attempt leads to starving colonists making a difficult decision about their future.

"Lucy" is a fascinating novelette by Susan Forest which asks us to consider what it is that makes us human.

Apparently having lost contact with Earth, they are threatened with starvation, the breakdown of their machinery, and other problems.... including human nature! A great story, really well done.
