Exit Interview, by Timons Esaias

Analog Science Fiction and Fact, November 2015;  4,269 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, story

A prisoner, confined for life on an inhospitable alien world, gets a sign that something is finally going to change.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The descriptions are good, the narration and dialogue are solid, the suspense is decent, and the outcome is consistent.

We aren't really rooting for the hero, but we're not very impressed with the society that sentenced him to lifetime in solitary confiment--nor with the fact that it simply abandons these people to die.
