Planet Fall

Planetfall (2009) Post 377

Planetfall  is one of the second set of Spacesports stories. In this one Prof, Jek, Nonny and Zita, Gold Team Junior, have done so well at 3D they have won a new shuttle for the team; The Nova Gold. They're about to fly off with Doc, their coach, to a match, but Kilkwitz, as ever, has to put his oar in. He sneaks into the shuttle and plays about with the coordinates, setting them to something different to make the team miss their match.

To his horror, someone comes to check the shuttle and he is locked in and has to hide in the cargo hatch. The shuttle takes off, but Doc notes the hatch seems to be leaking. The team goes to check, and discovers Klikwitz, who accidentally opens the hatch. He falls out onto a planet. The team, using 3D skills, dives after him. Since Klikwitz is Earthborn, and always boasting about it, they rely on him to explain how they can survive on a planet... Good luck with that, Team. Klick left Earth as a baby!

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
