PseudoPod 588: ARTEMIS RISING 4: The Good Mothers’ Home for Wayward Girls


by Izzy Wasserstein
Narrated by Tatiana Grey
Hosted by Sarah Gailey

PseudoPod 588: ARTEMIS RISING 4: The Good Mothers’ Home for Wayward Girls is a PseudoPod original.



One of the Mothers shoves the new girl into the dorm room, the slick threads of the Mother’s grasp lingering long enough that several of us shiver. The new girl wears a short dress, shot through with sunset, though we are not sure we remember sunsets properly. The hem of the dress is ragged and mud-caked. It is the most beautiful thing we have ever seen. We hate the new girl.




Listen to this week's PseudoPod.

Chilling.  I loved the texture of the prose, the way the words slid over my imagination.

I am all about post-apocalypse and capsule societies. Reminded me of Lord of the Flies? But with girls and an alien overlord? I wish them luck.

I loved the subtlety of the moment where she wasn't the new girl any more. That was a nice switch.
