Geoffrey W. Cole’s story “The Martian in the Greenhouse” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 6 December 2019.
“The Martian in the Greenhouse” was originally a chapter from my novel, Perpetua. In the novel, the main characters are cryonically preserved in a mine similar to the one Honoré was sent to in “The Martian in the Greenhouse”. The scene ended up being cut from the novel, and I thought the story was much more compelling with a young female protagonist than a middle-aged male, so I turned it into a stand-alone short story. I’m delighted to have it appear in Metaphorosis.
