Dia Chjerman’s Tale

I enjoyed this story. It was a quick and interesting story about a young girl who is passing on her grandmother from 27 generations ago story of their planets history and how they came to live on the “Ship”.

There was action, suspense, and great character development in such a short story. My favorite genre is Science Fiction/Fantasy and I felt this story could easily become a novel, or even a series. The idea of a planetary system in which there are possibly millions of planets all governed by a distant planet in which communications and interactions can take years to occur is truly fascinating. I was left wishing there was more.

I won’t get further into detail as I don’t want to divulge too much of the story, but I would highly recommend those who do and those who do not enjoy Sci-Fi read this story.
