In the spirit of the discovery of that frozen lake on Mars, I present Abundance, a sci-fi short that I wrote in the spring of 2004. I'm quite fond of it: a solid sci-fi premise based on an emerging scientific concept; unusual characters and a non-traditional sci-fi setting. The fact that it was immediately rejected by Asimov's, Analog, Fantasy and Science Fiction and the Sci-Fi Channel website doesn't change that. A couple of writers I greatly admire liked it, and that works for me.
