Life on a planet-spanning space station like Jupiter’s Halo can be tough. Especially when business is slow and all the punters seem to want is the golden boy next door. For Eesaar Tapp, experienced seductor and pleaser to all-comers, times have never been harder. Trade is down, swept up by his closest rival who, irritatingly, is also his best friend. Probably his only friend. With too many debts due to the wrong kind of people, Eesaar needs a bright idea, a lot of help or some kind of miracle to keep hold of what little he has. Including his life. Unfortunately, help isn’t much of a resource in the station’s lower levels and miracles are so rare as to be… well, maybe it’s just better all-around to go looking for that next bright idea. SKIN:TRADE is a short story set in the depths of the great Jupiter’s Halo station. Read it now for a glimpse into the darker corners of humanity’s future and the lives that matter too little for history to remember.
