    This was a short story of about 1,000 words. There wasn’t much space to build up the story of “A space explorer prepares for a journey that will never end,” as the description suggests, at least not in a fully literal way. What took place in this short time was more an exploration into the reasoning behind the narrator’s impending journey.

    Aside from the mention of the main character’s coming journey, and some other futuristic technology, this was a mostly literary story to me. I would have enjoyed a little more sci-fi in there. More story off of this would have been great, yet on its own, I feel it’s also a complete story. The author used this man’s mission as another way to solidify the main theme into the story.

    It was short, and got right to the point. I think it was enough to want to see what else Sistla can do with her words.
