Amara's Giraffe (Lady Astronaut Universe #4.3), by Mary Robinette Kowal

Mary Robinette Kowal, May 2018

This is a very short story in the Lady Astronaut series.

Alyshondra is taking her eleven-month-old daughter on a visit to Grandma, at Grandma's new homestead, on the Moon. They're in the zero-G part of their trip when baby Amara's stuffed giraffe starts falling toward the floor. This should not be happening. Where's the force coming from, with no thrust?

Alyshondra has to figure this out, get them back on their correct course, and calm the now crying Amara.

It's a story that's both charming and interesting.


I received this story as part of the 2021 Hugo Voters packet, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
