Short Stories - Question and Recommendations.

Hi

I know it's not a lot to go on, but I read a terrifying short story ages ago about the future, where travel to other planets happens regularly (people put into a 'stasis' like state, and travel using portals). The story focused on a young boy who somehow tricked the system, and ended up travelling on his own for decades, slowly going mad with only his own company.

Any ideas what it was?

Also, I want to get back into short stories now (ideal for a half-hour commute to work...). Anyone got any recommendations for where to start? Open to anything really, although crime / horror / sci-fi would be ideal...
