“I hear this Princess Ularia is quite a looker.” Quasar adjusted his burgundy tunic and gold sash as he leaned against his deluxe-model captain’s chair. “How long has it been since my last hot date, Hank ol’ buddy?”
“Uh…” Hank — a very hairy, four-armed Carpethrian who served as helmsman of the Effervescent Magnitude — half-turned from his post on the bridge. “Technically, sir, this is a negotiation.”
“Don’t I know it.” Quasar winked.
If you'd like to read the rest of the captain's flash-sized misadventure... "Captain Bartholomew Quasar and the Momentous First Date" is now playing at Every Day Fiction.
To celebrate Quasar's return to EDF, I'm raffling off a copy of Raygun Chronicles which includes "Captain Quasar and the Insurmountable Barrier of Space Junk" along with tales by David Farland, Seanan McGuire, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and many others. I'm a big fan of space opera (adventure stories set in space), and while I may be a bit biased, I think this is one of the best collections around.
