Free Short Story from TOR.com: "When Stars Are Scattered" by Spencer Ellsworth

Description:  "Ahmed is a doctor working in a far flung outpost of humanity. His way was paid for by the leaders of his faith and his atheism is a guarded secret. His encounters with the “kite people” will cause him to doubt his whole worldview however when the aliens start dying and escalating tensions between religious extremists threatens to destroy the colony’s peace.

 

"When Stars Are Scattered” is a moving story about alien contact, religious intolerance, and the redemptive power of the divine channeled through the spirit. Whether that spirit is human or alien.

 

The author would very much like to thank Khaalidah Mohammed-Ali for her support & suggestions on this story."
