For the past few weeks, I’ve been digesting and forming a new science fiction mystery novella. As I write this post I’ve already written around 9,000 words and I do not know how it’s going to end, but I’m capable of thinking up something 🙂
That being said I’ve already created the blurb for it. Tell me what you think of it.
It’s been six months since the Chloris, a survey and colonist team from a nearby planet have touched base with the Buwembo Depot Station to collect the next round of supplies. Unable to make radio contact they wait for its sister ship the Electra to arrive for resupply and reassurance. Except, like the Chloris, it doesn’t.
Not knowing what has happened and knowing that they are dependent on said supplies, a small crew is sent out to inspect and assist the assumed mechanical repairs. Except they find no crew. The residents of the two ships appear to have vanished and there is not much to go on.
Along for the journey is Sarojini, a former resident of the Chloris whose been residing on Buwembo as a carer for a cancer-stricken child. She is there to assist in their understanding and attempts to solve the mystery of the missing crews of the Chloris and Electra.
