I’m hard at work on a third installment to Lucky. As a result I will be here less frequently.
You can see the first two instalments here:
Lucky is a humanoid alien who’s escaped a clash of star-faring civilisations. Her homeworld lies in the galactic core. The battles that destroyed her civilisation were a long time ago, so long that suns have faded to dullness. Few of the places she once knew can now support life. Her people, the flowing people, were destroyed by the measuring people. She’s been on the run since, and exists in slowtime a process that lets her sleep in suspended animation while her ship, the Expedient, ploughs its lonely furrow between the stars. Eventually the Expedient comes upon a back-water of the Milky Way, known locally as Orion’s Belt.*
