About When She Awakes: A Short Story

In the Pleiadean Satrapy of New Amman, women are not just slaves, or even property—they are commodity money for the wealthiest and most powerful elites. Stores of value, units of account, and a medium of exchange in the upper echelons of the interstellar caliphate, cryofrozen virgins may spend centuries under the ice—or never wake again at all.
