“Merchant Captain Henri Duschelle, a man Union Fleet wish they had, must lead his loyal, hard fighting crew on a seemingly impossible mission: to deliver a vital organ to the dying son of one of his crew, across the longest span of the colonised worlds – to an insane deadline. He is convinced that only his ship, the stunningly beautiful Persephone, can make such a journey in the time allowed. But dangers lie in wait on this, perhaps the greatest voyage ever made by humans…
A novelette in the series: The Captain Henri Duschelle Stories.”
“Steve K Smy was born in Ipswich, Suffolk – a picturesque part of England. He has lived virtually his whole life there. He started writing for pleasure when he was 13 years old. He only returned to it seriously in February 2012, following a long illness. Since then, he has written and published (in ebook form) several short stories, four novelettes and has been working on a major fantasy novel.
He has written and published (as ebooks) stories in three series: the “Thief” series of fantasy short stories, the mild horror/future fiction “G1: The Guardians” series (two novelettes, to date) and the science fiction “Captain Henri Duschelle Stories” (a short story and two novelettes). The first of novelettes in each of these series have now been published as paperbacks.
Mr Smy is also a blogger with a growing readership.”
