Available in the collection, Beyond the Aquila Rift.
A soldier gets injured on a battlefield and is rescued by a medical robot and placed in a trauma pod, but things aren’t quite as they might seem.
Is this the future of medical care, with AI treating us in pods? Probably. I think this story gives us some of Alastair’s thoughts on the matter.
Next up from Alastair is The Water Thief.
Bye for now.
