Almost Angels by Ian McHugh.  Featuring an afterword read by Ian McHugh.  Narrated by J.S. Arquin.  #robots #space #SciFi #zombieslugs #angels

 

It had been Nipper's idea, to follow the humans back to the stars.  Eccentric, the humans might have said, or even faulty.  But how could all five of them have the same fault?

 

Ian McHugh's first success as a fiction writer was winning the short story contest at the 2004 Australian National SF convention.  Since then, his stories have appeared in publications including Asimov's Science Fiction, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, the Escape Artists podcasts, and Australian year's best anthologies.  His short story collection, Angel Dust, was shortlisted for Best Collection at Australia's Aurealis Awards in 2015.  In 2017 he'll have his first story in a world years's best collection, Gardner Dozois's The Year's Best Science Fiction.  Find him online at ianmchugh.wordpress.com

"Thomas, why do you think I brought you here?"
