Waste Land: A Free Sci Fi Short Story

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
We fell out of the void toward the planet that Hugo had named Eliot. Its G-class star, Pound, hung like a fiery jewel in the void. I was frozen, and Pound thawed me from an eon's sleep, gossamer arrays drinking in light and heat and literally, though indirectly, warming the frozen sludge of my blood. It brought me back to life.

About Michael McClung

Michael McClung was born in San Antonio, Texas, but now lives in Singapore. He's had a number of odd jobs over the years, including soldier, book store manager, and bowling alley pin boy, but the oddest by far is being a father.

His first book, the Sword & Sorcery novel "Thagoth," won the Del Rey Digital first novel competition in 2002 and was published by Random House in 2003. It has been re-released as 'The Thief Who Spat In Luck's Good Eye' and is available just about everywhere ebooks are sold.

In his spare time, Michael enjoys kickball, brooding and picking scabs.

Review by: Mark on Feb. 11, 2012 :
Just downloaded and read "Wasteland".

That is very, very good indeed!

I'm no fan of short stories, (usually they just succeed in getting across an idea perhaps wih a twist or two...) but this has the dramatic murder scene, evokes the ache of missing a child, mysteries of science, and of human motives, and questions the divide between science and god.

Would make a hell of a good movie, A modern 2001, A Space Odyssey... (except not boring at all...)

Five Star.
