A Mote in the Void, Lovecraft eZine Issue #17

Had fun doing a bit of literal cosmic horror in Simon Kewin's short story 'A Mote in the Void' for the cosmic horror issue #17 of the Lovecraft eZine.
A terse and gripping sci-fi story of a lone survivor, Kelly while on a space mission to answer a distress call from the exploration vessel 'Ares' after losing communication on it's way to Mars. Stranded and adrift, accompanied by a constant "Clanging" noise somewhere on the hull of the spaceship and the loss of a fellow crewman puts Kelly in a precarious position to take control and make some life changing decisions.
