SFFS - An Excerpt from "Samaritan"http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

Well, since I've given excerpts from the other two stories in my latest Triple-Shot of Aston West, I figure it's time to put of the third for this week's Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday installment. So, hopefully everyone will enjoy this sampling from my brand new story "Samaritan":

Gut feeling is something you should never dismiss. This is something I’d come to realize through life. Whether or not I trusted my own instincts, they were always right in the end.

When I stumbled upon the craft I saw before me, my gut was telling me to run. And I, like a fool, didn’t trust the direction it gave me.

My ship’s computer Jeanie attempted to join forces with my instinct, her voice carrying over the internal speakers. “This situation does not compute.”

If you liked this excerpt, be sure to head over and pick up my new Triple-Shot (a three-story e-book for under a buck) over at Amazon or Smashwords.


  1. Which book in this series should I start with? I went to the amazon site, but the series didn't seem to be numbered. (or if it was, well, I'll blame my not seeing it on my thick head).

  2. Intriguing snippet. Love the fact that you've used first person narrative. :D

  3. Ohh, poor Aston. Never catches a break... Great snippet as usual.

  4. Cary, if you want to start with the novels, they're technically standalone, but I figure reading Heroes Die Young would be more enjoyable. For the short stories, you can start anywhere (the only exception being a pair of related stories, Obedience / Profit and Loss (in that order)).

    Thanks for stopping by everyone! It's been a rough weekend, so I'm hoping to get out and check everyone else's snippets here today...


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
