Adventure on the Hilda Trail: An Anthology of short stories set in the Rammerverse, and relevant non fiction

Availability: Ready to download

As man expands into the solar system, the (estranged lunar division of the) U.N. astronautic corp begins to establish communications and other services- including patrol and rescue on the most important of all trade routes ever conceived of, the Hilda Trail. The Hildas are a stream of asteroids which form a natural trade route from the asteroid belt to both Trojan clusters As man expands into the solar system, the (estranged lunar division of the) U.N. astronautic corp begins to establish communications and other services- including patrol and rescue on the most important of all trade routes ever conceived of, the Hilda Trail. The Hildas are a stream of asteroids which form a natural trade route from the asteroid belt to both Trojan clusters, and are a rather wild lawless frontier in space. Here there are teams of the 'one and one' program (consisting of one of 'the folk', a species native to space, and a UN astronaut) attempting to help them who need help, defend them who deserve it, and shoot them who richly deserve it, all the while trying to not panic. Frontier's are a young person's place of opportunity and adventure, and an older person's duty to try to organize SOMEHOW. And that's what's going on in these short stories. Romance and Love are a tad uncommon, but friendship and coming to understand the very not human are essential, if one wants to survive to retire to your own rock of a micro-kingdom- or raise a family inside a camel (a cargo carrying asteroid) on that rich trade route. Most of these teams are a rank beginner fresh out of training and a seasoned pro; do to the recent time of entry into the situation, usually the KID is a human just coming of age, and the PRO is alien, native to space- with a few rare exceptions; Thus, it gets interesting as 18 year olds go out there and discover 'this ain't Luna anymore Toto'. Parts of this are the story of their coming of age where it matters, and that universe will separate the men from the boys with a tombstone- the gals too, as well as the Its (the folk). Also, there are detailed articles about the universe they are stumbling forward into as they try to work out HOW the HECK are we going to HANDLE THIS STUFF?!? These short stories are set in the Rammerverse. Also included are a few non fiction articles addressing assorted aspects of going to the asteroids and becoming a wealthy species. The folk like that idea, not surprising as they are living it; the humans are halfway there and learning fast. SOME of these stories appeared in an issue of Nebula Rift, a very nice E-magazine sold on the Amazon E-bookstore; you might like to look it up. The remainder only see print in this anthology.
