“Alchemy” in The Martian Wave

My short story “Alchemy” has just been published in the October 2021 edition of The Martian Wave, a magazine that, according to its website, “presents original science fiction stories about the exploration and settlement of other worlds.” My story concerns two colonists who meet on Mars and marry. Because of the harsh environmental conditions on Mars, pregnancy is against regulations, so when the woman conceives, the couple is expelled from the colony and sent back to Earth to have the child. The writing of “Alchemy” involved much more research than is necessary for most of my stories, but the contrast in environments between Earth and Mars was so important that I wanted to get the details right.

Copies of the magazine are available on the publisher’s website here.
