If you’re looking for “Flight from the Mother World,” this is now a teaser. The full novella can be found in my new anthology Pasodobles in a Quantum Stringscape, available as an eBook on Amazon.
During my content editing of Sing a Samba Galactica, released last year, I concluded that the Old Storyteller’s tale of the Rangers’ flight from Mother World took away some of our ET friends’ aura of mystery, made the novel a wee bit too long, and would distract the reader from the main story arc.
The Old Storyteller’s original name was Deep Diver. It turns out she had a very interesting life on Mother World. This is an introduction to the story of how she came to lead the expedition to New Haven. You will get to know the Rangers’ culture better in a very direct fashion—it had some problems. You will also have another encounter with the Tali, albeit indirectly. Please see the anthology to read more.
