Lost in the Moid

(complete text full story - 7,314 words)
(first of four sections)

        On her second day in the moid, Ida Brahma met the camera U-scampi. The camera was a complex machine about the size of a baby, a machine of gunmetal gray which hung above the dirty gray force field dunes of the moid at head-height, humming.
        "Who are you?" said Ida Brahma.
        "I am the camera U-scampi," said U-scampi, in a cultured voice-over expert's voice.
        A camera! Ida was conscious of her sweaty jeans, her grimy T-shirt, her bare feet. If she showed up on TV like this, her mother would have a fit.
        "What are you doing here?" said Ida.
        "I," said U-scampi, "am here to record your slow, agonizing death in the waterless transcosmic wastes of the moid."
