SFFS: A Snippet From SEEKER

Welcome to yet another installment of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday here on the blog. Thanks for all the comments that you give, and be sure to go visit all of the other SFFS writers through that link and read even more tales.

For those who haven't yet read my novella, Seeker, I'm giving a little snippet from the middle of that one today. And be sure to stop on by and pick up a copy for only 99 cents! Sometimes, a little goodwill doesn't always go as far as you'd think, as Aston discovers in today's snippet:


The old man’s dim eyes had fire within. His steps were firm against the plush carpet as he closed the distance with surprising speed.

“Mister West, I trust your accommodations are adequate.”

“Certainly. Thanks again for putting me up.”

He glanced at my shirt and pants. “I see you took advantage of the sonic cleanser.”

To move this along, I decided for a change of pace, and went with a pleasant disposition. “That’s a pretty sweet deal.”

“Fortunately, you also know how to use a shower cube.”

So much for being pleasant.
