There are, Darjak mused, a million ways to die in outer space.
From explosive decompression and gamma ray inundation to
technical failure leading to all manner of gruesome deaths, there was
no end to the ways one could meet their maker in the vast celestial sea of
But out of all the many ways to die, the only one he truly feared was
death by boredom.
He sat at the console of his small cruiser, the Dauntless. Skrozy had
promised him a new contract days ago but had yet to deliver. Darjak had
gotten tired of hanging aimlessly about Zardoz Space Station and Refueling
Center. He was a people watcher, but even he got tired of just sitting around

contract of your life?”
“Skrozy, if this is another bail jumper I’m going to—”
“Yes, yes, I know. I’ve signed my death warrant or something like that.
Anyway, don’t you want to hear about the contract?”

“A million credits.”
