"Slow Life" is a science fiction novelette by Michael Swanwick. It won the Hugo Award for Best Novelette in 2003.

The story is set on Titan. The author wrote: "I liked Titan specifically because there was a lot known about its chemistry and geography, but most people were not familiar with it, so a story set there would feel fresh to them." [1]

Plot summary[edit]

The first explorers on Titan find that the ocean is a weird chemical soup. But there doesn't seem to be any life in it, until one of the members begins to believe that something is talking to her through her dreams.
