Synopsis

Hugo and Nebula Award nominated novelette.

In "The People of Sand and Slag" Paolo Bacigalupi weaves a tale about the lives of three technologically modified guards, their barren, heavily mined landscape, and a chance encounter with a creature rare for their time period -- a dog. What starts off as a hunt for an enemy ends up as a story of empathy, and what it means to be human.

The story originally appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, February 2004. It has been antologized in The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Second Annual Collection (2005), edited by Gardner Dozois, Science Fiction: The Best of 2004, edited by Karen Haber and Jonathan Strahan, and Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse, edited by John Joseph Adams. It is also included in the collection Pump Six and Other Stories (2008).
