The Last Humans (posted 5-14-2021)
|Two survivors on a wrecked sleeper ship carrying the last humans are rescued by aliens a thousand years after the end of the human race.|
There are lots of SF stories about generation ships, fewer about sleeper ships, probably because sleeping people aren’t very interesting. But as a kid, I was always fascinated by the idea of sleeper ships. This is my contribution to the theme.

|A lone agent has made a startling discovery on a dwarf planet in the Kuiper Belt and must survive long enough to send a message to her superiors. She is pursued by enemies and is running out of oxygen, but the greatest danger is the frozen wasteland she must cross.|
This story was inspired by the discovery of a dwarf planet some years back called Sedna, located in the Kuiper Belt some 15 billion kilometers from the sun.
