The Ghost Ship Anastasia by Rich Larson was published in January 2017’s Clarkesworld issue. Summary: An action packed mystery story about a space crew (including one sister who is physically dead) following the distress call received by a bioship. Its A.I. seems to have taken the ship over and its occupants are missing apart from one. Pros: + Action thriller packed. + Emotional because of the dead sister + Great ending Cons: + It’s not explained why the sister’s consciousness will deteriorate after a few hours in the spacesuit. Why does it fit in there at the first place?
