Pets in Space releases October 11
Story thus far: cyborg Captain Dante Stone has rescued a group of colonists who were attacked by aliens. When he goes to check on their welfare, he discovers a woman has brought a dog on board. Dante is worried the animal may be carrying a disease, posing a danger to the colonists whose health is already compromised. The first line is Dante’s. Miranda Lowell is the heroine and owner of the dog.
“Remove the canine from this ship–animals are not allowed.”
Miranda Lowell recoiled.
“Captain, we’re a parsec away from the nearest life-sustaining planet,” Ochoa said. “The only way to remove him would be to…airlock him.”
“You can’t do that!” The woman rounded on him, horror flickering in eyes too large for her gaunt face. She couldn’t have had much to eat while running from the aliens; surviving colonists had fled the invading horde with only the clothing on their backs.
Her mongrel appeared in much better shape, healthy and well-fed, its short coat groomed and shiny. Good universe—she hadn’t been giving her limited sustenance to the dog, had she?
“Please, don’t send Sparky away.”
Spark of Attraction blurb
Memory: intact. Cognitive function: enhanced. Emotion: erased. After becoming a cyborg, Captain Dante Stone didn’t think he’d ever feel again, until a traumatized young woman and a ball of synthetic fur named Sparky helped him to love.
