#SFFS Snippet from Alien Blood

Hi and welcome back to another Saturday Scifi and Fantasy snippet. More snippets can be found *HERE*


My snippet this week is from ALIEN BLOOD, Book Two in the Diaspora Worlds Series. Her Cyborg Awakes tells the story of Kaistril. Alien Blood's hero is Kellac, Kaistril's younger brother. Alien Blood will be on Amazon Kindle July 6th.






His own homeworld didn’t have a PureGen constitution, but it was a Terran colony world.  A few Zh Cle’ hybrids were on New Prague, as legal non-citizens, working in the factories and mines that covered the planet. There was no penalty, they were not barbarians. New Prague did not have many immigrants. Temporary workers would be recruited for sudden manufacturing bubbles. They didn’t stay, though. New Prague was not a hospitable environment. The northern continent was cold and violent storms rent the warmer areas. It was not one of the Seeded Worlds, like Dusault 9, with flora and fauna similar to Earth.  On New Prague one had to live under a dome to survive for more than a short time.

  3. Great description of the (truly) dismal place. Wow. But great snippet.

    Oh, and I love the background on your blog page. Sooo cool. Like that famous waterlily painting with a shot of sci-fi and fantasy infused.

  4. Blech, indeed. I bet a lot of heavy drinking goes on there - poor migrant workers probably blowing all their earnings on booze and drugs (kind of like the Oil Sands here in Canada! - Shh... I didn't say that last part out loud).

  5. Yeah, having no control over the weather does tend to keep the tourists away. In addition to the high amount of drugs and alcohol suggested by Cary, I wouldn't doubt that the suicide rate is high there, too.

  6. No, it doesn't sound very hospitable. Wonder what kind of spin the local chamber of commerce puts on it.

  7. Cary--I live in Wyoming, which is an oil producer, and the riggers do have that hard drinking rep. Plus they come here, stay briefly and head out as soon as possible. I see New Prague as that kind of place.

  8. Interesting and very realistic. Biodomes have always fascinated me. So many possibilities for conflict and trouble. Great snippet!
