Mark Fassett’s latest piece, the novelette Dreams of Earth is now available in the Ravenstar Press Store. A paperback edition will also be available soon.
Hal hates space. He worked for years in the deep cold blackness to save money so that he could return with his wife to Earth, buy an apartment, and start a family.
But his wife loves living on the Titan Interstellar Launch Facility, and seems to have forgotten the shared dream that brought them there.
When Hal's boss approaches him with a new contract, his wife implores Hal to take it. Returning to Earth looks like a shattered dream.
But, if there is one thing Hal doesn't want to do, it is to stay in space one minute longer than necessary. Can he find a way to change her mind?
