A ship of explorers has crash-landed onto K24B, a planet full of vast plains and lush forests teaming with countless new species. The knowledge-hungry survivors soon discover that danger lurks in the shadows. People are taken in the night and some simply disappear without a trace – a heightened sense of desperation sets in with each person lost. Every breath becomes a matter of survival for those that remain. “A Matter of Survival” is the second story in “The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar.” The anthology contains ten short stories to make you think and tremble.
