First Starman

Xin was more alone than any human had ever been before, although there were some who would argue that he was no longer human at all.
This was a unique journey in many ways, the first time humankind had tried to go beyond the solar system and venture to another star system, and to make such a journey possible required a very special man, the First Starman.

About Eero Tarik

A few years ago I started to write and publish short stories using a variety of pen names. In 2011, I wrote and published over a million words and I am now one of the world's most prolific short story authors - ever.
Recently I turned my hand to writing science fiction.
I love imagining what might be in the future, but it may not always be rosy so you tend not to see the hero saving the world on the last page on my stories.
I recently discovered that I am genetically a Saami. I suspect part of that identity, and the thousands of years of isolation from humankind in my genes, also comes out in some of my stories.

I write quickly, to tell a simple and entertaining story. I imagine we are sitting around the camp-fire in an era long gone. The story should be sharp and to the point so that it is memorable. I don't believe in filling 300 pages with mindless waffle.
I don't plan my stories - I put my fingers on the keyboard and let them tell the story - the ending often unfolds from my fingertips without even thinking what it might be.

My favourite sci-fi short stories of the ones I have published so far?
I really enjoyed writing 2094, it had been forming in my mind for many years.
In 2012, the cover of 2094 was sent to the edge of space on a hot air balloon and then returned - that was a great thrill.
The Multiverse Traveler is another favourite and I am tempted to continue on with it into other stories.

May I recommend, Androgyne, a recent addition to my bookshelf and a story I thoroughly enjoyed telling, and Avatar Gods which just felt amazing to write. I love the emotion it generates. It really adds to the atmosphere if you listen to the songs mentioned in the story.

I also have experimented with putting music to my works, my series Fembot Wars has an album of music set to the theme of the ebook series. I have published the songs under the name of an avatar I created, a musical pen name.

I recently began to write short plays for the ten minute play market, I hope you enjoy them. They are usually funny and to the point!

Finally, I enjoy listening to music as I write, it provides the stimulation for moods. Here is my writing playlist on Youtube, for those interested...
