Snakes, by Yoon Ha Lee

Clarkesworld Magazine, July 2015; 4,111 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

A soldier-made-warship carries her sister-soldier's corpse seeking a way to revive her.

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

There's nothing wrong with the actual writing itself.

This is a dreary tale that ends with suicide. It's loaded with fantasy science, such as the idea that you could pass near a black hole in order to advance time. None of the characters is interesting or sympathetic in any way.
