If you’re reading this, you signed up to follow my website, so thanks very much. And as a tangible gift of thanks, you get to be the first to read my new short story Send and Receive, set in the universe of The Face of the Deep series.
It explores a topic I’ve long been curious about since I started my fictional space opera universe: how do people communicate between distant star systems? In The Word Reclaimed and its sequel, everyone uses comms ferries that jump between systems, just like ships. Send and Receive gives you a peek into the life of one such comms ferry jockey named Vincent Chen, and as you’ll find out, it’s a life with its own set of challenges.
I hope you enjoy the story, and don’t forget The Word Endangered will be published in July 2016 by Enclave Publishing.
