Hard Sci-Fi meets True Darkness
Cyan comes out of stasis after testing a prototype teleportation drive to find… nothing. No stars. No planets. No idea of where she is, and no way to navigate home.
The fact that the ship’s computer kept her in stasis for over a billion years is just the beginning of Cyan’s problems.
But Cyan is a problem-solver. She is determined to find a way back home. With some amazing technology at her disposal, Cyan is convinced that she can find her way Homeward Through Darkness.
From The Author
After growing tired of all the news and social media posts that try to lure you in with promises of “You Won’t Believe What Happens Next!” and so on, I decided to write a story titled “What You Read Next Will Amaze You!”
Sherry Merriam overheard me, and laid down a double-dog-dare to the entire writer’s group to write such a story.
A few days later, I had an outline. A month later, it was done. But my crit group voted the title down. ALL of them. In fact, they Triple-Tyrannosaurus-Threatened me to NOT use that name. For a short while it became “Mother Of Light” and eventually became “Homeward Through Darkness.”
