Hello! I hope you’re doing all right.

We’re finally into spring weather in Oregon, so while everyone is stuck at home, at least we can go outside. When you’re on lockdown with a toddler, that’s a huge deal. 

My big news is that Galactic Law 3: Galactic Jury is out. I had a lot of fun with this book and it’s already a #1 New Release.

The Classic Science Fiction Podcast: Free Audio Short Stories

I’ve started a podcast where I read science fiction and fantasy short stories from before the year 2000. I’ve got a library of thrifted magazines, collections and anthologies that I’ve been wanting to read for a while, so this project is a kick in the pants to get going.

One of the first stories is Duty Calls by Anne McCaffrey. You can listen here: https://www.classicsciencefiction.com/2020/04/13/csfp-002-duty-calls-by-anne-mccaffrey/. It’s from the collection The Girl Who Heard Dragons.

I share whatever info I can find about the author and the story if it’s available. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for being a reader!

Info I sent in for the latest anthology:

Genre of your story: Space Opera/Space Exploration

Intro (3rd person) to the story, maybe 150 words: New ShipLord Asarik Karak is about to take her crew and ship, Serens’ Reach, through the long-dormant Halith Gate, a wormhole built by humanity and then lost during a great Galactic Dark Age. If the gate fails to activate, everyone aboard the exploration vessel will be caught in its gravity for the rest of their lives. If they make it through, they may discover lost colony worlds hungry to reconnect with humanity — or a horror cut-off from the Known Worlds to protect those who survived the ancient war that spawned the Dark Age. For Asarik, haunted by the battle that killed her mother and her father’s political manipulations, Halith and its lost colony worlds are a chance to prove herself to her crew and strike her own path into the future, if Serens’ Reach can survive the crossing and what they find on the other side.
