Meet the Legacy Fleet’s self-described top maintenance crew: Nils Jansen, hacker extraordinaire with a smart mouth, Larry Hopkins, a by-the-book crewman with a short fuse, and their intrepid captain, Marco Esquivel, who’d much prefer to be sailing around the coast of Cape Cod at any given moment.
Together, they’re traveling out to the furthest reaches of the solar system aboard The Beagle, an interplanetary shuttle with absolutely nothing interesting about it what-so-ever… and that alone is kind of interesting, isn’t it?
When their simple repair mission on Pluto’s moon, Charon, doesn’t go quite as planned, it’s up to The Beagle’s crew to fend off a dangerous invader and somehow return home, but first they’ll need to overcome an endless supply of biting sarcasm and employ each of their unique skills to get the job done.
Is this the beginning of the end for mankind, or just another bumbling misadventure for three semi-competent techs? Read Out in the Styx — A Biotech Legacy Adventure to find out!
This story is a self-contained excerpt from the upcoming novel, Biotech Legacy: Long Fall, due out in November, 2013.
As the title of the post gently implies, Out in the Styx — A Biotech Legacy Adventure is now available. It should go up on Amazon in the next few days, but in the meantime, you can grab a copy right here.
So have at my friends. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to curl up and try not to think about ebook formatting for a few hours.
