I wrote this story some time ago, not long after the first two stories in the Lollapalooza series. I’m not sure why, but I never got around to publishing this one – and the fourth one coming next week.
But they’re out now, ready for consumption!
Intergalactic travel can be fatal if attempted with a faulty communications system. This is why all systems are doubled.
Anouk, the Lollapalooza’s new mechanic, is faced with glitches in the Secondary, while the Prime is already out of commission.
The origin of the craft-wide problem must be found before all the systems fail.
I’ve set the price of all my short stories to $0.99 for the duration of the current confinement, however long that might last. So if you’re looking for some short and easy reading while waiting for the world to go back to normal, maybe give one of them a try!
Another Science Fiction story! Like The Vanguard, it’s a little weird, but not as weird…
For inspiration for this story, I sat down with my Thesaurus and picked out two random words. I got lollapalooza (which was really fun but impossible to place) and quarantine (which apparently got my writing juices running).
Let me know what you think!
The majority of her crew having perished in a flu outbreak, Captain Kovak is in desperate need of a friendly port.
She finds a planet on the map with the tags fuel and crew for hire, figuring she’s home safe.
I know, I haven’t posted in over a year. But I’m still here, and still writing, I just didn’t have anything ready to publish.
2018 has been the year of short stories for me. I’ve finished a whole bunch of them, and you’ll be seeing them popping up over the next few months.
The very first one, a weird Science Fiction story with cats (of all things), is coming out tomorrow! It’s called The Vanguard and was written for an assignment in a writing class I took. It had to have aliens and it had to have pets – so, yes, this story has alien felines… I promise, it’s a great story, though!
Here’s the cover and the blurb. Let me know what you think.
Minou’s latest kill, a wonderfully delightful mouse, has gone missing.
The mouse-thief isn’t the cat next door, but someone far more unexpected—and dangerous.
