It’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday, when a group of author of speculative fiction get together in a blog hop with snippets (up to 10 sentences) of our work. When you’ve finished this, hop over to other fantastic authors (use the link above) and have a look at their work. Have fun, and remember we all adore comments. (Almost as much as we adore buyers of our books. They’d make great Christmas presents.)
Year 4 Day 225
I wish I could remember Kana’s pregnancy better. She was a colleague years ago, and the only R’il’nian woman I ever saw pregnant. It seems to me she changed a lot more than Songbird, while staying much better balanced, which goes along with what little information I can find on the computer. With Songbird, I am forced to rely on Meerkat, who still insists the pregnancy is going well.
Mapping the coastline has hit a couple of snags. The northeastward trend changed abruptly when the coastline turned due west, to my relief. I know there is salt water far north of where I first crash-landed the emergency craft, and the turn to the west seemed to indicate that I was finally moving toward it. But yesterday I suddenly realized that another coastline was approaching the one I followed, from farther north. Today I found that while they approach each other so closely that I no longer have to levitate to see the northern landmass, they do not actually meet. Rather, the approach forms a gateway to a wider sea leading north-northeast.
Jarn is a fictional human-like alien who was stranded in Africa 125,000 years ago, during the interglacial prior to the one we’re in. He’s joined up with a group of primitive humans, who insist on treating him as a god, despite his protests. Songbird, her young mate Giraffe, and Meerkat have remained to serve Jarn while the rest of the group has dispersed to follow the game.
