This is one of my favorite George R. R. Martin stories, and that's high praise. The ubiquitous references to worms made me think of Poe's "The Conqueror Worm," and like that poem, this story is darkly fascinating. I asked the author about what influenced it, and he said that he supposed Lovecraft did somewhat. I'm sure Lovecraft would have been honored by the acknowledgement. The story is set in a far-distant era when the human race and the solar system itself have changed dramatically, but the science-fictional background is layered into the action and implied rather than explicit, so this reads more like high fantasy with strong horror overtones.

Within pages i was intrested and by the end i couldnt put it down. I only wish there was another book to further expand the world the story takes place in. Very cool

Martin is amazing. This is a great idea that's slow to start, but has great potential. I would like more about annelyn, as soon as he becomes likable the story ends. It reminds me a bit of dune but obviously better paced. Recommended but know it will leave you wanting more as he always does =)

This 45 page novella probably could have been made better as 15 page short story.
