It came from Pauline Yates

Pauline Yates’s story “An Aftertaste of Earth” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 25 August 2017. Metaphorosis

“An Aftertaste of Earth” originally stemmed from the prompts, sci-fi, pumpkin pie and a convention centre, in a short story competition which earned me a place in the final round of the contest. As I love end-of-the-world themes, the story developed from wondering how people would be chosen to start a new colony on another planet, and what they would have to prove to earn a ticket off Earth.
