The Pericles Conspiracy

Passing in the Night

Prelude to The Pericles Conspiracy

A year-long shift in the middle of the interstellar void can get pretty boring.  For the Fourth shift crew of the starliner Pericles, enroute to Earth from one of the colony worlds, the passage could best be called routine.

Until the forward sensors detect an unknown and unexpected object ahead.  What they find there, in the endless night of space, will forever change the universe, for them and for all mankind.

Passing In The Night earned an Honorable Mention from the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest for the second quarter of 2011.

The Pericles Conspiracy

Pericles Ebook Cover (700x1132)

Passing in the Night is a hard sci-fi tale of an encounter in space.  Pericles explores the repercussions of those events.  So while it’s still sci-fi, it’s mostly based on Earth, and is more of a suspense/thriller.

The back cover copy:

Josephine Ishikawa’s last shift as Captain of the starliner Pericles changed the course of history, but no one knows about it. The powers that be took charge as soon as she got back to Earth, with only a select few permitted to learn about the beings she encountered during the run from Gliese, or the eggs they entrusted to her care.

Satisfied that the government would make good on her commitment to return the eggs home, Jo returned to her job of getting Pericles through a major maintenance overhaul and then back out to the stars. But when she learns that the authorities reneged and have begun experimenting on the eggs instead, she faces a difficult choice: keep the life and career she loves or embark on a quest to rescue the eggs and keep the promise she made to their dying parents, out in the depths of space. That quest could cost her more than she ever imagined as it plunges her into a shadow war against a planetary government that will stop at nothing to keep its secrets.
