A 7-Part Sci-Fi Thriller
Deltar 769 here -- BZZZZt --
to introduce our latest sus-sus-serial from Kevin Lumley, an
author quaintly dubbed the -- click!
-- the Wizard by the editors at P&D bbecause of his
association with some sort of land mass nicknamed "Oz" (how witty
these humans -- sigh). This
serial, however, bears no connection to any earth-side country, as it
takes place in deepest, darkest space -- and you know what they say
about space? Well -- crizzle!
-- actually, I don't, but apparently it has something to do with no one
hearing you scream! Well, of course not, sound doesn't carry in a
vacuum. Oh...oh, I see. It's not the the lack of aural resonance that
is disconcerting, but the motivation that might impel one to make such
a primal utterance that causes one to pause.
And screaming might well be in order.
On the mining planet of Staia a series of bizarre
deaths have everyone on edge, and it is into this situation -- whree! -- an elite team of space
marines, The Rapid Action Team -- the R.A.T.s -- have arrived hoping to
get to the bottom of things. They've got brains, they've got brawn,
they've got spunk.
But it might not be enough...
This serial has been removed from the Archives at the request of the author as the story will be re-appearing in another publication (so keep an eye out for it!)
