Their only hope lies in the chance he can make the aid station before the coming night. He is exposed and hurt. He has nothing to protect him from the sub-zero temperatures Samantha says are coming.

Meet the Author

Trying to figure out when I started writing is like trying to decide when I started walking. The stories have always been there, rummaging around in my mind. Some went on paper. Most didn’t. I wrote my first novel when I was 22. Thankfully, I left it to the dustbin of history where it shall always remain.


Imagine the grin, yes, it was that bad.


As for influences on my latest story, The Island, that one has been up there banging away in my head for a long time. Parts of it were told at bedtime. Though honestly, those who heard the parts wouldn't recognize them in the story. By the time we get to the second book in this series, they will find some recognizable moments. They'll also probably be upset that the adventure turned into something of a horror story.


Ahh, well, most of them are old enough now to read it for what it is.


I grew up in North Carolina, which is why part of the story is set there. I’ve been to exotic parts of the world, many countries, and most states. None of them I know as well as the one I called home for most of my life. It makes it easy to write about it, and the people in it.


I hope you enjoy the stories.


MS

Really well written. Imaginative and creative. Would like to see more from this author in the future. I read the book Seduction and it was exciting to say the least. This one was very different and shows that the authors imagination covers many different areas and is able to move from one form of writing to another based on what he/she is feeling at that time.

This type of short story would be good among a collecton of TV shorts like "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" or "The Twilight Zone". Michael Stark's talents certaily rank among the greats.

Is she real or the ships computer? The lengths the "pilot" goes to for their survival is for love not a computer. I want more adventures with these characters in deep space.

The movie "Her" seems very much like this storyline, down to the name of the female character, but is credited as a Spike Jonze original script.
