Jason Sanford's novella Sublimation Angels is a hard science fiction story set on the planet whose atmosphere has frozen, leaving humanity to continually mine the frozen air to survive. Into this comes Chicka, a young man struggling with the death of his identical twin and his twin's quest to understand their world--a quest which goes against the rigid nature of their survival-minded society.
