Set after a global collapse, the crew of a fishing boat are accused of exceeding their quota, which has other implications... ( )

Another really good post-apocalypse story, except Vaughn’s world is a positive post-apocalypse. In other words, rather than the calamity which leaves humanity worse off, we’re in not so bad a position. Knowledge was preserved. People aren’t warring bands of nihilistic degenerates. No warlords or totalitarian governments. Basically, after whatever bad happened, people decided to live much more sustainably. Here it’s a fishing captain who has been somewhat ostracized because her mother had a baby (her) without the consent of the community where she lived. Not only is it post-apocalyptic, but it’s kind of a slice-of-life story that tells a lot about the world it describes through the lens of one person’s activities. Well done.
