Shadow Patterns of Melt – Book One
“Very original! The characters are not Space Force or military like most sci fi stories, but normal (for their time) and not cartoonish as many blockbuster movies are. Language has evolved slightly as would happen over the years. Recommended for readers looking for a more serious story.” ~ Kindle Customer
With four hundred planets staked and thirty in early gration, physics-savant Nialla and comms-genius Bishr want nothing more than to jump wormholes from system to system — to live and work and laugh and love in their own ship. But their inadvertent discovery, accomplished parents, and interstellar history itself cast shadow patterns across humankind’s future independence in space.

Five short etiological tales.
Trail Winds reminds me of “Mother West Wind’s How Stories” and of course Kipling’s “Just So Stories”. But these have a very western, American flavor. Karen S. D. Robinson
