Jonathan Hicks, published twice in the British Science Fiction Association's writer's magazine 'FOCUS' and the mission designer/dialogue writer of the mobile telephone game of acclaimed television show 'Battlestar Galactica', presents twelve short stories about the little people in the big universe. “I grew up with the grandiose science fiction tales, in books and on film, with great galaxy-spanning adventures or life-changing technologies,” said Jonathan Hicks. “In this book I concentrate on the ‘little guy’, the people who work behind the scenes and those who get a less than stellar deal out of the supposed adventure travelling the galaxy and exploring new technologies offers.” For more information visit www.jonathanhicks.moonfruit.com Contains strong language and some violence

Oct 15, 2009"Good read" It's a nice refreshing change to read some short stories for a change after having ploughed through some enormous sci-fi trilogies in the past (which took months...!) The stories are well written, and I enjoyed reading the book (which I'd never have found out about if it wasn't for the local paper). I particularly enjoyed 'Gunfight in the closed emotions club', and 'Farsight Dreamer' and would like to read more about both. All the best Jonathan
