Free Fiction Monday: Boz

Free Fiction Monday: Boz

Boz got his job on the colony ship The Beautiful Dreamer because of his skills as a competent introvert. He enjoys spending years completely alone, monitoring the passengers passing the time in cold sleep.

So, when he wakes up one morning to Christmas carols, he gets scared. Very scared. Who has joined him on the ship? And why torture him with Christmas cookies and mugs of hot cocoa?

He needs to find out—and soon.
