A Handful of Stardust by Kai Hudson. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword recorded by Kai Hudson. #scifi #clones #podcast #fiction #space #colonization

“The vote is in two days.” The anger was gone now, leaving only grief and sharp betrayal that made Alice’s words come out choked. “And Anita made it clear who she thinks should get wiped. You know what she called me? Stubborn. ‘Stubbornness might have gotten us here,’ she said, ‘but now she’ll only trap us in our ways.’”

“Craters. Your leadership personality said that?”

“Anita’s not leadership.” Because Amelie, the true leader, had volunteered for the first wipe. “She’s charisma.”

Kai Hudson lives in sunny California where she writes, hikes, and rock-climbs with enthusiasm if not skill. Her work has appeared in Clarkesworld, PodCastle, Anathema: Spec from the Margins, and other fine places. Find her at
