An impoverished young mother whose husband is fighting overseas struggles to help her sick daughter on a home front where the people have given away the best parts of their characters. A half-robot, half-plant cyborg vows to save the mind of a young boy who is its only friend. A couple encounters a nightmare realm of ancient clothing, human and otherwise, and the creatures which lurk there. An out of luck drug addict has less than three hours to pay his oxygen tax and save his own life and that of his son.

About the Author

Matthew Sanborn Smith is a writer who lives in South Florida. His work has appeared at, Nature, and Chizine, among others. His story, "Beauty Belongs to the Flowers," was given an Honorable Mention in The Year's Best Science Fiction. Besides his too infrequent contributions to the StarShipSofa podcast, he is also hardly ever seen at and heard even less on the SF Signal podcast. But what tops them all is how he is almost never heard on the SFF Audio podcast. He is, however, the lord of the Beware the Hairy Mango podcast, which celebrated its fifth anniversary earlier this year. He is one head of the writing hellhound known as Cerberus, the other heads belonging to Grant Stone and Dan Rabarts. He once held a Hugo award in his sweaty hands before security asked him to give it back to its rightful owner.
