“A Close Port of Call” by Altivo Overo

Originally published in ROAR volume 1, 2007 from Bad Dog Books, this is a science fiction story about an incident at an orbiting spaceport, where a lion ship captain and a zebra dockmaster enter into a tense friendship but must overcome their instincts in order to fully trust one another.

Today’s story is “A Close Port of Call” by friend-of-the-fireplace Altivo Overo, who is a horse who stubbornly believes that there is good in every sentient being and that every cloud has a golden side.
