The Junker's Moon long range scanner picks up a ship flying under a notorious tag of convenience. The Lancer, owned by Captain Jack Hacket, lands with only fumes to run on and five hundred refugees on board, twice its registered capacity. When they leave the ship, Hacket's mercenaries enclose the refugees in a stockade and Junker's Moon finds it no surprise that Hacket is wanted for trafficking. When two ships carrying Hacket's associates show up inbound at high speed, Marshall is certain that his problems are about to multiply.
About the Author
I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology. In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. These were distributed to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board. About twelve years ago I began writing science fiction. What next? Complete the fourth novel-length book in the SF series following on from 'Passengers to Sentience', 'Passengers to Zeta Nine' and 'Passengers: Revelations'. The profile picture is a portrait of the author as a young man, painted by Charlotte Salisbury, the cover artist for 'The Old Store'.
