SHORT STORIES FROM THE WORLDS OF HOLLOW MOON!
It is the twenty-third century and scientists, dreamers, crooks and believers have bridged the vast cosmos, staking their claims where distant suns burn fierce in the sky. Yet for all of humankind’s technological marvels, life for many is far from a wondrous fairytale.
Can a poor, down-trodden kitchen slave find her prince in the shape of a young, dashing space captain? When the power fails when parents are out for the night, is it wise to be wandering the forest with vicious robot wolves on the loose? A man caught up in a war wonders if he can go on, so why does a hologram taunt him by showing the greatest blunders of his life? It is supposed to be the season of goodwill!
The new edition of this anthology contains refreshed versions of three seasonal space-opera stories from the Worlds of Hollow Moon and more:
- "To Dance Amongst The Stars"
- "Merry Christmas, Mister Wolf"
- "It's A Blunderful Life"
- Epilogue: Extract from City Of Deceit
- Chapter One of Hollow Moon.
HOLLOW MOON CHRISTMAS SHORT STORIES have been published every December since 2011. These are generally science-fiction re-tellings of traditional fairy tales popular in the British tradition of pantomime, while fitting into the overall story arc of the novels.
