Here at Camden Park Press we’re working hard to prepare science fiction author Leigh Saunders’ first novel, Synth for release. Set in a semi-distant future, where Earth is just one in a society of a Hundred Worlds, we think it’s a book you’ll be as excited to read as we are to get it to you.
In anticipation of Synth, Leigh has graciously provided us with a short story set in this same future, introducing the primary character, Brianna Rei.
For the genetically engineered Synth, “living” means always staying one step ahead of the bounty hunters. And when Brianna Rei, in hiding on the planet Kita as the thief “Misha Kif,” returns home to discover an unexpected visitor, she knows it’s time to disappear again into the relative safety of the Hundred Worlds. But will the final demands of friendship cost her more than she is willing to pay?
