Timothy Marsh has shown deep perception into the human psyche, through his exploration of the central character. The device of science fiction is used to investigate what we are and what we may become if given a chance. By not mentioning any other new technologies or social changes, the author has set the story in a very familiar present, making it much more accessible to non–science fiction readers.

Freight is a great example of the balance that can be achieved in short stories between moving the story forward efficiently and still creating engaging characters and scenes. The smooth writing style and natural dialogue make for a good fast read. The ideas that are played with gives the reader more of a glimpse into themselves than the future.
