NO ONE FIGHTS DIRTIER THAN AN ARCHAEOLOGIST
Archaeologist Nel Bently has her own crew, her own research, and a private patron to fund her passion for dirt. With her trowel barely into the dry earth of Chile’s coast, however, Nel learns she and her crew are being watched.
Los Pobladores, known to Nel only as vandals and looters, take issue with any archaeologist brave or stubborn enough to set boots on their land. Nel is both and far from willing to give up the site that will make her career. She must keep her crew, her friends, and her life’s work safe, but with a benefactor playing chess with their lives, and angry militants who may actually have a point, Nel is ready to fight dirty.
THE ONLY PERSON ON EARTH SHE TRUSTS... IS IN SPACE
Archaeologist Nel Bently left Chile in the wake of murder, vandalism and UFO sightings. No sooner has the school semester started when cops are at her door. Accused of a murder she’s not certain is her fault, Nel has no choice but to go on the run. She starts a game of connect-the-dots across New England following her gut and clues left by her elusive alien-benefactor-turned-almost-girlfriend.
Running from the law isn’t easy with her field pack and a handful of scorned exes to depend on. Between starvation, untraceable texts, and a harrowing journey through the wilderness, Nel is forced to question everything about the science she loves and the people she trusted.
IF SOUND KILLS, HOW CAN NEL GET THE WORLD TO LISTEN?
Archaeologist Nel Bently dreamed of finding a ground-breaking site--she just never thought it would be on another planet. When she arrives on Samsara however, Lin confesses that the trip took longer than Nel thought. Two years longer. She throws her anger and homesickness into her work, wondering if she just made the biggest mistake of her life.
Then a lead officer on her team takes a walk without his atmosuit. Once again, confusion and grief rock Nel's dig. But this time, she's determined to fix it--even if it means mutiny. Lightyears separate her from home and as Samsara's body count rises, the more it looks like Earth is next.
CAN LIN SAVE THEIR LIVES WHEN SHE'S FORBIDDEN TO GET INVOLVED?
Lin wakes from cyrosleep orbiting Earth. Her brother has a mission for her: monitor their organization's newest investment, an archaeological site. It proves the existence not only of extraterrestrials, but their human students abducted from South America 13,000 years ago. Students that include Lin and thousands of others scattered among the stars.
Then Lin's glorified babysitting turns into a web of conspiracies, violence, and complex cultural heritage. She must choose between her brother's orders and the lives of the archaeologists she put in danger.
STARFURY (Season 1)
When journalist Andromeda (Andy) Gull is caught in an explosion, she loses more than just her leg. Now a biomech--someone with mechanical prosthetics--she is shunned from "real" human society. Her job, her apartment, and everything she worked for is ripped from her hands.
And then she meets Jem, the non-binary pilot of the spaceship Starfall. Jem is a biomech too, but only on the inside. Together they decide to prove being human is more than just the sum--and material--of your parts.
Starfury is a serial and takes place between the events of Drifters and Strangers. Based on the short story "Starfall," originally published in the January 2016 issue of Vitality, the LGBT magazine.
