What’s in Issue 510

Novel Jane is transferred to an infirmary aboard a science station, where she is in the care of Dexter, Charts and Dr. Eliza Doyle. Jane recovers so well she’s allowed out. She runs away repeatedly and hides in remote places on the station. When she’s not running, she watches Dexter closely. They both seem to be waiting for something. But are they waiting for the same thing?
