Far Flung by TCC Edwards

Far Flung

An Upcoming Sci-Fi Novel by TCC Edwards

 

William Flynn was ready for his greatest career move ever – reporting from the first human colony outside the solar system. Instead, his ship is sent far across the universe, and its crew is forced to find a new home without hope of help from Earth.

FAR FLUNG is a sci-fi odyssey, the stories told by a rookie reporter as he becomes his colony ship’s best hope for survival. New chapters will be released regularly, weaving a tale of the search for a new home, far from Earth.

When the alien boarded our ship, I heard its thoughts in my head. Their fear and suspicion became tangled with my own as it exited our airlock. Clad in black armor, with four clawed arms extended outward from the top of its round body. If I offended it, would it strike out with those claws? So many depended on me. They will again, every time we meet another alien species. I would give anything to go back to being William Flynn, the naïve journalist for the Galactic Observer. When our colony ship appeared here, so far from the rest of the fleet, there was no way I could be an impartial observer any longer. Only one of us on the ship can hear the aliens, through some strange telepathy. I’m left with only one friend who trusts me, the young pilot Helena Clarke. Skilled as she is, she looks up to me, as if my career better prepared me for first contact with other races. I must negotiate our survival. I must lead our desperate search for a new home. We can’t go back. I can’t just be a reporter, but I can hope my messages reach you. I can even hope that I will reach you, and hold you again, my love.  

— William Flynn, formerly reporter for the Galactic Observer

 

Follow Flynn’s logs as he finds the crew of his colony ship looking to him as they navigate far reaches of unknown space and deal with the residents of a distant galaxy.
