I find myself finding my copy of Analog to re-read this one story over and over again. I think its part romance novel (unrequited love) and part interesting view of how tough life would be if the your outpost suffered a disaster. This would make a great movie, especially if someone like Spielberg directed it. Sure there are no monsters, super natural beings or other distractions. Just a real fight for life.
