* Selina Rosen's "Salvager's Gold" (short story, science fiction)

Colorful but mundane story of a human Salvager - kind of street sweeper - aboard a space habitat called "Gamma Station" that also is home to aliens, & in whose dock spaceships from all over are seen. But the dream of every Salvager is to locate "The Big Trash" - an abandoned alien habitat at an unknown location in space awaiting looting of its valuable booty. After a murder, chase, & escape, our hero is on his way to claim the loot.
