"The path itself remained the same, a trampled indentation of ice and snow wending its way first through black rocks and stubborn tufts of purpling vegetation, then over featureless blue ice until it reached the melted edge of the ocean."There are Elders, and then there are Drinkers. Our narrator, alas, is a Drinker, and his life on the planet called Wannoshay is one of hardship and unimaginable labors: he must travels many miles to gather water from the shrinking oceans, and carry it back to his people, in his belly.A prequel to Michael Jasper's near-future science fiction novel The Wannoshay Cycle (also an ebook), and previously published in the DAW anthology Heroes in Training, "Drinker" tells the tale of a young alien who just might become great.
