Hey. Some of you might remember I wrote a first chapter of an Oolite-inspired novel about a year ago. Well, I have continued the project and now have over half a book drafted (8 chapters so far). The story is basically the same, but I have radically altered the first chapter.
I am attaching the first chapter here. If there is interest, I will continue to add further chapters as I edit them. These chapters should be considered drafts.
Note: Some of the game concepts from Oolite have now been given different names, as I am anticipating turning this into a stand-alone book for publication (e.g. Cubocta = Coriolis). If I decide to go that route, I will be changing ship names and planet names too. I am using the universe of Oolite as a guide for my imagination, but it should be clear that the story is entirely my own!
I hope you enjoy it. Even if you read earlier drafts of chapter one, I encourage reading this, as it is very different.
