Happy New Year! I’ve decided to celebrate the end of 2012 by releasing my short story, Starfarer, for free! You can get it here. It’s available in every format imaginable (e-books, PDF, text, etc), all of them DRM-free!
Starfarer is a short story about an unusual first contact between Angie Coura, a woman from Earth who is on a long-range deep space sleeper ship heading towards a new colony, and an alien vessel.
Partway through the journey, Angie’s ship has a catastrophic encounter with the alien ship, which changes her life forever.
Starfarer is set in the same universe as my Masters Trilogy of novels: Edge of Infinity, Heart of the Maelstrom, and the upcoming (and I just now came up with the title for it) Beyond the Expanse.
