Back in 2013 my short story, “The Lamplighter Legacy” won the grand prize in the James Patrick Baen Memorial Writing Contest sponsored by Baen Books and the National Space Society. There are details about the contest in previous posts if you’re interested.
Anyway, that story is still available to read for free at Baen Books here:
It’s also now available as a standalone ebook download from the usual suspects. It isn’t free but as close to free as I was able to get it to be.
Here’s the cover:
And the blurb:
When high school student Ernesto Suarez wins the Lamplighter Prize for Best Amateur Space Blog he finds himself thrust into the heart of a hidden conspiracy that will forever change the course of human space exploration.
Should you want a shortcut to this story there are links to the various online retailers under the “Books” tab at the top of this site.
