a not-so-secret Armchair Alien decoder ring
Good morning my fellow story enthusiasts!
With almost a year’s worth of content ranging from a complete novel, two novellas and handful of fun short stories, it’s time to create a decoder ring pointing to the start of all the good things.
But first, Substack had materialized an app to make reading a bit more convenient (or at least different). Check it out here:
With the app, you’ll have a dedicated Inbox for my Substack and any others you subscribe to. New posts will never get lost in your email filters, or stuck in spam. Longer posts will never cut-off by your email app. Comments and rich media will all work seamlessly. Overall, it’s a big upgrade to the reading experience.
The Substack app is currently available for iOS. If you don’t have an Apple device, you can join the Android waitlist here.
Now lets delve into the free archives!
The Last Stop - A scifi short story where an AI in charge of a captive human struggles to do the right thing.
Lunar Escape - A scifi novella
After years of captaining a cramped, Conglomerate owned survey ship, Lucas Ordaz is ready to retire and live his dream life on solid ground beside the love of his life. There’s just one last mission: before Earth’s defences obliterate the asteroid, Lucas needs to shuttle a scientist out to study it.
The scientist’s ambitions are set on fire when they discover a potentially alien object on the asteroid. She forces the reluctant crew to attempt bringing it aboard, and chaos ensues.
Lucas wakes up in an abandoned lunar mining facility, without a clue of what that object was or who he can trust. Most importantly, he has to find a way to make it home.
A Demon of Midwinter - An urban fantasy novella about how a vampire and human joined forces to fight a malevolent creature…and fall in love along the way.
When the Good Lord Calls - A not-quite-dystopian small story about death
Case File 7 - The One With All the Elephants - A kinda silly, detective caper set on a space station (complete with tiny elephants and spicy cricket tacos).
Debt Collectors - A dystopian tale about trying to run from the collectors when the debt comes due.
First of all, what would you like to read more of?
Another Case File will start next week—the future of apple pies is in danger. And in April the next instalment of Encoded Orbits will begin.
