Wolf Block

In this science fiction short story, a rich young woman enlists to serve in her government's military to honorably complete her duty to society. She expects to deal with people who come from the lowest economic classes, so it is no surprise that her roommate is not from a wealthy background. The many rumors from prison sector W84-88D, "Wolf Block," are no surprise either, but she dismisses the notion of a secret conspiracy. However, she does not expect to be wrapped up in the mystery when the enigmatic prisoners of Wolf Block take a special interest in her.
