Exploring the Wild Black Yonder

Much of the science fiction set in outer space focuses on heroic soldier girls or –boys.  That observation is by no means a complaint.  I love many of those stories!  But here are four adventures where the military—even if it’s there—isn’t the focal point.

A Wrinkle in Time
Archeologist and former Earth Military Force officer Luke Parillo finds thousand-year-old wreckage all the time.  But this ancient ship came from hundreds of years in the future.

Hunter and Prey
A nursery full of cute little babies.  Cute little vacuum-dwelling metal-eating babies, ravenous and eager to devour the starship that discovered them among the asteroids they call home.

A Time of Joy and Sorrow
Yuwellan:  living jewels, beautiful beings comprising every shade of blue.  As tiny as a few centimeters to as huge as thirty meters in diameter.  They invite a human colleague to share in their people’s most sacred ceremony.

By Any Other Name
The death of a virtual stranger embroils a space pirate in a conspiracy.  He barely knew the murdered woman.  So why fight so hard now to catch her killer?  And dare he trust the authorities?
