Writing: Fallen Angel


Delighted to have my first piece of flash-fiction “Fallen Angel” published by Australian zine “Antipodean Sci Fi”, with a digital cover-art by me as well.

Stay tuned for the narration, coming soon…

So, some background on the story.

Fallen Angel” was written early in the Australian summer of 2018. Originally in a longer form, I took the challenge to present it as a piece of flash fiction.

Having been a space geek since my childhood, the concept of finding something in orbit that shouldn’t be there presented in my mind as a scientific who-dun-it mystery. When a nuclear weapon goes “missing”, there is a code phrase for that – a “broken arrow”. But when I researched what phrase would be used to identify the death of an astronaut while on a mission (as opposed to during launch or re-entry) I couldn’t find anything.

Not to say that there isn’t a phrase locked away in a procedural guide at NASA or ESA… it just is not known to the general populous.

Hence, “Fallen Angel”.

The narrating character is not named in the story. He has his own backstory, and his own methods, and further investigations which will hopefully be revealed in future stories.
