AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Told as a series of first-person accounts, 'Sirius' relates the progression of an airborne disease in the closed system of a space station, circulating above a planet: as the story progresses, the connection of the disease to the planet's colonial history becomes clearer.


  • Note: although set in an alternate star system, the story has strong parallels to Australian colonial history.
