To be published soon: a series of three novellas featuring agents Jonathan Bartell and Gaby Larsen.
Realistic science fiction mixed with mystery and a touch of whodunnit.
Set in the real solar system, the three novellas explore the difficulties in maintaining healthy environments for people in space and the many, many ways in which people can sabotage them.
When micro-organisms were discovered on Mars, Jonathan was one of the flood of students who went to study exo-biology. Students who are now all flipping burgers because the micro-organisms weren’t very interesting and no one was willing to fund enough research into the them to absorb all the new graduates.
Jonathan wants a job in space. Any job. Quarantine Officer at the Orbital Space Station is a start, right?
Gaby Larsen is a doctor in the tiny hospital at the Orbital Launch Station.
Jonathan is new and blunders into things that he would be better to keep out of.
Gaby has seen these things and knows for sure that the truth is better hidden.
This is the main premise of three novellas in this world. Each will be an independent story that follows the previous but that does not require that you read them in order.
The first novella should be done shortly.
