Prologue in search of a Space Opera

The Krrlll were an ancient race.

As old as the earliest of the Seyfert galaxies, the Krrlll, composed  as they were of pre-Nova light elements, had long ago abandoned MetaLight star travel in favour of Transdimensional Warpage.  During one of their many journeys, oscillating between times past and times future,  the Krrlll happened upon Man, and the shock almost destroyed them!

Mankind had discovered the Probably Drive and was soon exploding out of the Solar System at many times the Speed of Life.  Scouring the starlanes for something to conquer, something to kill, and armed with the most fearsome weapon ever invented - the Omniplasmicomegatron - the Terran fleet scythed its way through star systems, reducing whole planets to rubble.

Mankind appeared unstoppable, until that fateful day when the Star Cruiser “Moon of Orion” warped into RealSpace in orbit around Gamma Ceti IX.

Gamma Ceti IX, in the Procrastian Quadrant, from time immemorial the Thirteenth of the Prohibited Worlds, was the home of the Whhaaarrrrnnnn. A truly ancient race, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn had existed from before the dawn of  recorded history, and had long ago discarded corporeal form, mutating into life-forms of pure energy.  Their physical beings no more than a race memory, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn retained but one legacy of their animal past - the lust for blood!  Though tied to their world by  bonds forged beyond space and time, the Whhaaarrrrnnnn feared no race...other than one - the Quufffh!

Now, the Quufffh were REALLY old...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Tia Armstrong: Couldn't stop reading this, incredibly well written and really feel attached to the characters. A few minor typos but overall a brilliant piece of work. In particular the way in which Evie's internal conflicts were portrayed really got me onside and had me rooting for her all the way.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...
