Through An Unknown Gate
A Salvage Universe Story
There are things in the vast emptiness of space that should never be found.
Searching for anything it can salvage and sell, the thrown-together vessel named The Ruptured Duck enters the wrong gate code, and winds up in a star system where no Human has been before. No civilizations inhabit the planets, but the system is not empty. The crew of The Ruptured Duck find a derelict ship of alien design. Sensors indicate no signs of life… but as the Humans are about to learn, the definition of ‘life’ is flexible.
From The Author
First and foremost, thank you for reading my work.
When you spend your hard-earned money to purchase my book(s), it’s a humbling experience. I feel a deep responsibility to give you the best books possible, not only in terms of plot, characters and narrative, but also proper word usage and grammar. This does not and should not imply perfection on my part. Far from it. However, whatever errors may creep into the work are regretted by the author, who asks forgiveness in advance.
My one and only intention for this and my other books is to entertain the reader. Perhaps to also inform, especially in my non-fiction, but information is only useful when delivered in such a way that it’s remembered.
Readers are special people. I appreciate you all because I’m one of you. Books are my life, as my overflowing bookshelves will attest. Everything I have done in my life has led to this moment. From majoring in Creative Writing to absorbing military history over the last 50+ years, I have devoted my life to this book and all those yet to come.
I pray you feel the effort was worthwhile.
