“Low Arc” available at Baen Books

baen%20logotransSmallMy short story “Low Arc” is now available at the Baen Books website. This is the story that won this year’s Jim Baen Memorial Writing Contest, run by Baen Books and the National Space Society.

Colin Bertelli thought that he’d left the dangerous work behind him when he quit his job as an ice miner at the Lunar South Pole and joined NASA. But Bertelli is about to discover that, on the moon, even the most routine work can be perilous and life on the lunar surface demands heroes. The pulse-pounding winner of the Jim Baen Memorial Writing Contest.

Also at the site is Marina J. Lostetter‘s wonderful second place story “Balance”.

My thanks to William Ledbetter, and Jim Minz and Tony Daniel at Baen for all their work with this.

    That was a great read, Sean. I can see why it won – your use of technical language wasn’t over the top, the characters were real and funny, and I found myself cheering Bertelli on to come up with a solution and fast. Congrats, again.

      Thanks for that Erin – really appreciate it. That’s exactly what I was aiming for, some technical stuff but with a character and situation to cheer for.
