Hi! Welcome back to another round of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday! There’s a chill in the air and the rays of summer are all but forgotten but what better way to warm your thoughts than with a sturdy dose of Sci-Fi / Fantasy writing. If you haven’t already checked out all of the engaging contributions from this week’s authors, just shoot on over to the main site at SciFiFanSat. This week, I’m still sharing snippets from the opening chapter of my latest novel, Maxx Fragg, V.P.I. Things are about to go down and Maxx’s terrified clients are having second thoughts.
Debbie raised her hand and asked, “Would it be okay if I just darted to the lady’s room first?”
“It’s too late for that,” Maxx said.
“But…” Debbie persisted.
Maxx secured the detecting rod back in his bag and withdrew a long barreled shotgun with a plastic cylinder attached to each side. “You can put your hand down now.”
Pumping the stock, a neon gel flowed through the tubing running the length of the barrel. Maxx hit a button and the liquid energized, bubbling as it flowed the course of the weapon. The couple simultaneously pulled their feet up off the floor.
It was time for Maxx to set up the final act.
“You wouldn’t want to miss the show, would you?” Maxx asked.
“They’re professionals, Debbie,” Travis said, trying to reassure her with a half-hearted smile.
Debbie dug her nails into the couch. “I guess.”
Let’s hope Tane can keep it together long enough to see some action. I promise some ghost thumping action in the coming snippets – just in time for the merry month of Halloween! If you want to check out more from Maxx Fragg, you can check out the first chapter over at Goodreads or even better, you can get your very own copy of the book, print or eVersion, by clicking HERE.
