Journey to Yandol, and other stories
Stuart J. Whitmore
This book is a collection of short stories that are mostly science fiction. "Journey to Yandol" follows the misadventures of a space freighter pilot who just wants to go on vacation but finds that it keeps eluding her as crime and corruption drag her into something much larger. "Power Off" explores an alien invasion scenario kicked off as retaliation for an attack we didn't know we were making. "Tea Leaf Technology" introduces a sneaky and technologically-empowered galactic cult. Finally, "Tramp Avatar" is a short tale of a young man confronting the complexity of reality on what started as an ordinary day.
The approximate lengths of these stories are: Journey to Yandol, 10,000 words; Power Off, 2800 words; Tea Leaf Technology, 2400 words; and, Tramp Avatar, 1800 words.
The book is released under an open license that would allow you to obtain some or all of the stories for free, most likely in an electronic format. However, ordering a copy in print provides you with a compact and complete book that you can take anywhere and read without any added technology requirement.
