SFFSat - Nov 17

Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday (SFFSat) is a place where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and also shoot the breeze a little. And before I get ahead of myself, thanks and appreciation as always to those who stop by and leave fantastic comments.

To Catch A Marlin
is available in Ebook & Paperback
from Amazon

Continuing with the release of To Catch A Marlin, yet another snippet. I'm debating whether this should be the last one--time to move onto other exciting adventures--but maybe I'll save one last one for next week.

To Catch A Marlin is a futuristic cat and mouse tale involving Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.

Today, we have our favourite space pirate, Captain Taris, chatting with Jax after a particularly nasty chase, having a little discussion about space...


            Jax snorted. “Granny Fish does not pine. And she still thinks you’ve wasted your talents out here in this dark hole of a universe.”
            “I don’t know what you two have against space and adventuring these uncharted seas.”
            “It’s space. It’s got stars and planets and junk. What more is there to adventure?”
            “You landlubbers.”
            “Uncle Taris. It’s space—not the freaking ocean.”

  1. Their banter is great. I smiled the whole time I read this, though I'm with Uncle Taris--so much to explore amongst the empty.

  2. Great dialogue! If you do keep posting snips, just avoid the spoilers (I'm only half-way through!).

  8. Sometimes these snippets are too short! Oh, uncle Taris, space exploration is just sooooo uncool.
