It’s the year 4163, and humanity has mastered space exploration across the known universe, collecting samples of alien lifeforms from multitudes of planets and placing them on display in “xeno zoos”. Jonathan plans on following in his parents’ footsteps, journeying through the stars to locate and collect extraterrestrials from distant galaxies. His dreams and preconceived notions are laid to waste however, when disaster strikes.
It’s difficult to say more about this gem of a short story without giving too much away. Excellent writing, great world building and characterisation. Highly recommended.
