Free Fiction Monday: Strangers at the Room of Lost Souls

Starbase Kappa. The Room of Lost Souls. An abandoned space station with different names but one certainty: People die there. Still, a soldier can’t argue with orders, no matter how bad a place’s reputation. Enterran Empire Operations Commander Elissa Trekov’s most famous relative died in the Room, so she thinks she knows it better than the rest of her team. But when strangers turn up on the so-called abandoned station—strangers who seem to know a lot more about its function than they pretend—she realizes the Room’s legendary history only scratches the surface of the dangers lurking within.

“Strangers at the Room of Lost Souls,” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.

Free Fiction Monday: Dix

This week’s Free Fiction Monday is a little different. It’s a way to sample my new Diving novel, Searching for the Fleet, before its publication day on Tuesday, Sept. 18. The novella “Dix,” which was first published in the March/April issue of Asimov’s, follows Yash Zarlengo, an engineer aboard the ship Ivoire, as she tries to cope with the fallout of the accident that caused the Ivoire to be propelled five thousand years in the future. When First Officer Dix does something that shocks Yash to her core, she must put her own life on the line to uncover a threat that could mean the end to everything she knows. 

“Dix,” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.

It’s a story about Coop from the days before he became captain of the Ivoire. The reactions to this story are pretty strong, which pleases me. I hope it brings some […]
