"Foreign Bodies" by Melinda Brasher

My story, "Foreign Bodies," is the cover story of this month's edition of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, a well-known sci-fi e-zine.  



"Foreign Bodies," by Melinda Brasher

"A colony on an alien world is functioning as best it can with limited resources when an infection causes hallucinations that could prove as deadly as the infection itself -- and the doctor who was supposed to deal with it died on board the ship before it ever reached the planet in the first place, leaving one resourceful young lady scurrying to figure this mess out before time runs out."   --Description by Edmund R. Schubert, editor.  

I love the art that accompanies it, created specifically for my tale by the talented Andres Mossa.

Head on over to see if for yourself.

If you want to read the whole story, subscriptions to the magazine are only $15 per year, and include access to all back issues.
