"The Thunderchild Fables," by Roger Emile Stouff and Kenneth R. Brown

This book is six stories in one, woven through the fabric of the crash of the first manned expedition to Mars. Rescue is on the way, but oxygen is short, and worse, they are faced with a mystery...something that should not have been possible, but could not be denied. The commander orders the survivors to tell stories, explanations for the quandary they have been thrust into, and the fables are born.


The café was mostly featureless, almost barren. A few booths remained, and a couple of barstools, but Jacobs had the impression the place was long closed when it was--? Whatever. All the light fixtures were missing, and a few windows shattered.

He noticed Luka, staring at papers on a wall. "Captain. Look at this." Jacobs went to her. It was a calendar. The picture was of a pretty girl on the hood of a Mustang, and she held up a hourglass-shaped bottle of black liquid. The caption read, Enjoy Coca-Cola!

"Look at the date," Luka pointed to the top of the calendar.

June, 1968.

"Something's wrong here, Myles," she whispered over the com link, her voice tight as the bun of her hair. He thought he heard the slightest tremble.

"Something's very wrong."


"Excellent story. This is the second book I have read by these authors and was not disappointed. The first was Firekill. Well formatted for the Kindle Fire, great editing, great flow, and a good ending. Very interesting sci-fi with flights of fantasy. I will read another by these authors. -- Soldner, Amazon reviewer

They carried the dreams of a nation.

But the Thunderchild lay in wreckage.

Rescue is coming, but oxygen is running out.

In a dust-reddened cafe millions of miles from where it should be, the stranded crew compose their fables.

Something is listening.
