BLACKBIRD AND THE DARKSIDE OF THE MOON

A CHILDREN OF CRONUS NOVELLA - HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

Fresh off bagging their latest bounty, Sal and Morgan Tripp are broke again.

Finding themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere with an empty gas tank, it’s almost too good to be true when charming captain Astra books passage aboard the Tripp’s recently acquired ship, Blackbird. Offering a small fortune for what appears to be a straightforward job, Sal and Morgan agree to transport Astra to Mira 5 where his ship awaits, despite the suspicious behaviour of Astra’s fresh crew of misfits, which includes a psychotic serial murderer familiar to Morgan.

While en route, Sal overhears the crew’s mutinous plans for their new captain, and even though you’re supposed to mind your own business in Morpheus, she can’t abide bad things happening to decent people. But there is something worse waiting for them in the depths of space, something ravenous.

Sal and Morgan could make a tidy profit from this trip, but first they’ll need to escape the dark side of the moon alive.

Blackbird and the Dark Side of the Moon is a special Halloween release which takes place in the universe of the full-length novel, Light Tripper. This prequel novella contains elements of horror and gore.
