PAGE EIGHTY NINE. Low orbit over Amazonis Prime.
Ground control to Major Tom.
Happy Friday, Marsers, or as we call it here in Chicago: NATO Day One. So far things have been quiet but I expect NATO will do their best to jam us up like a column of T-72s advancing into West Germany.
This week finds us in low orbit over the Red Planet (again). You remember what happened last time we got a look at the CSC battlites? Big badda boom, as they say. But it looks like someone has different plans this time. Anyone hazard a guess? In any case, we say hello goodbye to these orbital weapons platforms.
I sort of went on a bit last week, so I’ll keep things brief. It is both gratifying and slightly frightening to realize that we only have seven pages left. And that Free Mars: Riot Girls is heading to the printers as we speak. For everyone that’s already pre-ordered the book, we thank you immensely- you’re literally increasing the chances that there is a second (and third, fourth) Free Mars book.
This week’s musical pairing is from one of Nic and my favorite bands. We both thought ‘Starlight‘ by MUSE made a lot of sense. Such a driving, powerful tune. Perfect for a space battle.
Until next week,
