‘Biosustainability’, ‘georesources’, ‘acidic fallout’. Not words you’d usually associate with fairytales. However, as the decades see Mankind continuing to make steps in interplanetary travel, our imaginations have flown ahead of us into space, conjuring races, environments and supernatural encounters just as fantastical as the folklore of old. Nathan Ramsden’s ‘Airless’ sees humans struggling to colonise a distant world. Atmospheric storms rage, sustainable population limits have been exceeded and the only breathable air available is manufactured by failing towers. Furthermore rumors are circulating of strange sightings beyond the station boundaries…

‘Airless’ by Nathan Ramsden is the ninth short story in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 3’, published by Mother’s Milk Books. Visit their website for a browse of their published works.
