To celebrate the launch of my new Author Website, I’m offering my latest scifi satire novella A HELMET FULL OF HAIR absolutely 100% FREE on Amazon Kindle…!
Meet Donald “Do Nothing” DeWitt. Alone. In space. Drifting…
To keep from going mad with isolation, he relates to his mother the tale of the early days aboard Starship Wormwood (and how it blew up) into the tiny radio transmitter in his starsuit. A weak signal that could never possibly traverse the lightyears between him and Earth. Never mind, that because he has been traveling faster-than-light for several years, his mother has now been dead for several thousand…
With nothing but the sound of his own voice, Donald recalls alcoholic-rageaholic shipmate Ryerson jettisoning the ship’s garbage (and essentials) out of the dorsal airlock, when not attempting to grow marijuana on top of the ships hyperdrive… He remembers fondly his philosophical dalliances with Captain Hardwick (distractions which ultimately led to the ship’s demise)… O’Brien’s endless counting… And most of all, he remembers home… The only thing he CAN’T remember, are his reasons for joining the accursed mission in the first place.
A HELMET FULL OF HAIR is a short novella which masterfully blends surreal science fiction, dark comedy, and memoir.
The promotion starts tomorrow (February 28) and will run until midnight on Sunday, March 2nd.
