So . . . I decided to try my hands on some science fiction. True to the genre, it quickly grew too big to contain and escaped its confines.
Although the two genres share many similarities, sci-fi is not quite the same as fantasy, and I’m well aware of – and partially in agreement with – the notion that one should stick to what one knows best. Jumping from fantasy to science fiction (albeit only for two novellas), isn’t quite the same as a basketball player wanting to play football, and expecting to be taken in by the national team; but it’s in the ballpark. (See what I did there?)
In any case, I’m the basketball player trying to play football in this metaphor, and I sincerely hope that even though I didn’t stick to ‘my genre’ this time, you’ll read (and hopefully enjoy) the first of my two sci-fi novellas. And let’s be honest: I’m not writing in the big leagues here, so it’s not like I’m trying to have my cake and eat it, too. (Though I do tend to eat the cakes that I have. It seems preferable to throwing them away.)
In any case, the story follows a young girl and her brother as they’re trying to get some information to K’hadmera – The world that floats. Someone wants to stop them before they get there, however, and are willing to spend an ungodly amount of money to stop them. Alexandra, the young girl, doesn’t quite know what that information is, but her brother seems convinced that it could very well save the entire known universe.
Or end it.
Read, enjoy, and leave a comment below if you feel like it. (Both the banner and the book is clickable, if you were wondering)
