Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
This anthology of eight short stories shows the genesis of the Viridian System series, a science fiction adventure starring two asteroid miners, Big Pete and the Swede, and their female companions.

About Jemima Pett

Jemima Pett has been living in a world of her own for many years. Day-dreaming in class, writing stories since she was eight, drawing maps of fantasy islands with train systems and timetables at ten. Unfortunately no-one wanted a fantasy island designer, so she tried a few careers, getting great experiences in business, environmental research and social work. She finally got back to building her own worlds, and wrote about them. Her business background enabled her to become an independent author, responsible for her own publications.

Her first series, the Princelings of the East, mystery adventures for advanced readers set in a world of tunnels and castles entirely populated by guinea pigs, now has seven books online and in print. Jemima does chapter illustrations for these. She has also edited two volumes of Christmas stories for young readers, the BookElves Anthologies, and her father's memoirs White Water Landings, about the Imperial Airways flying boat service in Africa. She is now writing the third in her science fiction series set in the Viridian System, in which the aliens include sentient trees.

Jemima lives in a village in Norfolk with her guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for her first stories, The Princelings of the East. She is now writing science fiction for grown-ups as well as completing the Princelings series, and writing more short stories for anthologies.

This was a great little collection of flash fiction stories, which are perfect to give you a taste of the world, while making you want to know more. The little explanations of how the stories came about were a nice touch too.

Review by: Judy Stone on April 8, 2016 :
Flailing around, desperately seeking a book to hold my interest. In a weird mood and my comfort reads and well-loved classics weren't cutting it. After trying and discarding books in my TBR pile, I struck gold! SF/F is my favorite genre and Jemima Pett gives us a perfect intro into her new series.

This is a great way to get to know the main characters and a bit of their backstory and world before reading book one in the series, The Perihelix.

The Perihelix is next on my reading list. Can't wait to dive into the further adventures of Big Pete and the Swede.
