Short Stories 366:211 — “Valediction at the Star View Motel,” by Nathan Adler

From the previous story of a far-future failing Earth with seed-ships and non-humans, the next story in Love Beyond Body, Space, and Time drops us right back into our contemporary Earth with "Valediction at the Star View Motel."
