Overview

Humans have known for years that they are not alone in the universe. Those in power have chosen not to seek further contacts because of a tragic history, but sometimes contact cannot be avoided.

When an unidentified ship crashes in Antarctica, a team is assembled to communicate with the new arrivals. First agonizing silence, then a confusing plea for help. Who or what caused the ship to crash? Will scars from the past interfere with the mission? And will the team understand the danger in time?

Zero Station is a gripping tale of first contact, uniquely told from both the human side and the alien.

Editorial Reviews

Red Adept
Ms. Hamm did a terrific job of incorporating the two sides of the story together. By telling each side consecutively, rather than simultaneously, she made a more enjoyable read because the reader must put the pieces in order. There were "Aha" moments in the second half when I found out what the aliens were thinking during each portion in the first.

This was a terrific short story. Had a unique twist/angle at the end. Being a fan of stories in the arctic, this was a good one. Had a couple of creepy moments too. Nice job.

A well written enjoyable story with good character development. This book needs a follow-on story to continue where it left off. It was too short for my taste in stories. When will the sequel be out?

The beginning of this book was awesome, and built up good suspense and interest in the characters and storyline. Unfortunately the last 5 or so pages of each story was so rushed. No development or explanation of how things progressed so quickly. Just a 'here's where they are now' type feeling.
