Across the Terminator

The moon is a lonely place to be.

Commander Hank Schakowsky has spent the last two years cooped up in Blue Glacier, the under-equipped U.S. research base in the moon’s Shackelton Crater, with mad scientist Fasbender. A cold war between America and China is in full force back home. Earth has forgotten about them. But Crazy Bessie, the base’s robot, has unveiled a new discovery. Things are about to get interesting.

The Chinese base, Yang Liwei, faces Blue Glacier in a geopolitical staring contest. Hank’s only contact with the base has been through a video feed. Until now. The discovery means Hank must venture over and meet with Liang Lei, the charming Chinese commander.

The two bases soon discover what happens when opposing nations start working together. But are they traitors? Or are they pioneers of a new world?

Across the Terminator is a story of love and progress. It’s a beautifully crafted tale underpinned by the philosophy that science should be bigger than borders. This story is by David Tallerman, whose novel, Giant Thief, was described by Fantasy Faction as “one of the finest débuts of 2012”. That same phenomenal quality is present in Across the Terminator, a poignant tale that will leave you reeling.
