John Scalzi Earth Below, Sky Above Part One I Im not going to lie to you, Harry, Hart Schmidt said. Im a little concerned that youve taken me to a maintenance airlock. Im not going to toss you into space, Hart, Wilson said. He tapped the outer portal of the airlock, which had among its features a small porthole made of a thick, transparent alloy. Its just that the airlocks are one of the only places on this whole godforsaken tub where you can find an actual one of these. Dont let Captain Coloma ...

John Scalzi The Gentle Art of Cracking Heads This is a very interesting theory you have, about conspiracy, said Gustavo Vinicius, the undersecretary for administration for the Brazilian consulate in New York City. Danielle Lowen frowned. She was supposed to be having this meeting with the consul general, but when she arrived at the consulate she was shunted to Vinicius instead. The undersecretary was very handsome, very cocksure and, Lowen suspected, not in the least bright. He was very much the ...

Her second was to yell at Helmsman Cabot for evasive action. Cabot responded admirably, slamming the ship into avoidance mode and launching the ships countermeasures. The Clarke groaned at the sudden change of vector the artificial gravity indulged a moment where it felt as if the field would snap and every unsecured object on the Clarke would launch ...

Its not every starship captain who intentionally maneuvers her ship into the path of a speeding missile. Captain Sophia Coloma set her jaw and tried very hard not to crack her own molars while doing so. There were a number of ways she expected this final inquiry into her actions in the Danavar system to go. This being the opening statement was not one of them. In Colomas head a ...

An array of parts and tools was splayed out on a work blanket Schmidt was on the edge of it. Wilson himself had his arm shoved deep into an outside compartment of the shuttle. From the inside of the compartment, Schmidt could hear bumping and scraping. What are you doing Schmidt asked. You see tools and parts and my arm shoved ...

With the hit, she took a sharp intake of breath and tried to get her bearings. She quickly became aware of three things. One, she was nude underneath a rough blanket that draped her body as she sat in a chair of some sort. Two, she was restrained, with her wrists, ankles, neck and waist strapped down to the chair. Three, she was blind, ...

Harry Wilson entered Abumwes stateroom on the new Clarke, which was even smaller and less comfortable than it had been on their previous spaceship. This is cozy, he said, as he sat. If by cozy you mean almost insultingly cramped, then yes, thats exactly what it is, Abumwe said. If you actually meant cozy, then you should have better standards of personal comfort. I did in fact mean the first of ...

The captain would be busy, she would be in the way and in any event there was not that much to see. When the Polk skipped dozens of light-years across the local arm of the galaxy, the only way a human would register the fact would be that their view of the stars would ...

Schmidt knew that the ambassador not being in her office wasnt a good enough excuse for him not to be in her presence when commanded, so he did a hasty PDA search on his boss. Three minutes later, he walked up to her in an observation lounge. Ambassador, he said. Mr. Schmidt, the ambassador said, not turning to him. Schmidt followed her gaze out ...
