This short (~ 6000 words) is an interesting take on an all too familiar story. A geeky spacer kid (someone who has been born in space) is bullied by a rough-and-tough jock type, and dies. He returns as a revenant, swearing death and destruction on everyone and everything on the station. It's well written, beautifully paced, and quite entertaining. There are some errors here and there, but not enough to detract from the story. One of the problems with short stories is that they can often feel too sparse, as if there is more the author should've said. This one doesn't suffer from that problem: Ms Brown jumps in, says everything she needs to say, and leaves. The ending isn't really to my taste, but I still can't say the story left me wanting anything. All loose ends are tied up nicely; any more would've been too much.

Murder most foul, in space, leaves a vengeful ghost. Neat concept, right? Then you hand the concept over to a love-starved teen who had been bullied in high school, and you get this mess. To the author: Throw this story away, but keep the base concept. Wait ten years and try again. I look forwaed to the rewrite. Should be pretty good.

My previous attempt to review this isnt showing up. So heres my second shot. A love triangle where one guy kills another and the dead one comes back as a vengeful spirit...at the end of the day, you really should consider not picking on the weak.
