A while back I started writing a novel about a father whose son mysteriously disappeared while stationed at a science facility on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons. Titled, Freeman’s Ocean, the father ends up traveling out to Enceladus by hitch-hiking aboard ore mining ships that are continuously moving about the solar system. It’s a poor man’s means to traverse the solar system, sort of like train hopping. What he finds out about his son is completely unexpected. This is one of those novels that I will have to finish, that is after I complete about a half dozen other writing projects but I will get to it.
And speaking of the unexpected, if you have an interest in sci-fi involving exploring the solar systems planets and moons, I just read a novelette called From Europa With Love by David Nadas with a unique take on what we just might encounter out in deep space. You can’t beat the price, right now it’s free.
