From the Ice Incarnate by Joe Vasicek

They say that going into cryo is the closest thing to death short of actually dying. I believe it.

When Michael Anderson woke from cryo at a distant alien star, he had no idea how isolated he would feelโ€”no idea, that is, until his sole mission partner nearly dies in the thawing process. Twenty light-years from the nearest human being, without anyone else to help him, Michael must act quickly to save her life.

A 3,000 word excerpt from Genesis Earth. Won first place in the 2009 Mayhew short story contest at Brigham Young University.
