Christmas Whispers: A Short Story of Whisper


Christmas Whispers Short Story

Time passes slowly when you’re an earth spirit and no one lives on the land. It’s Christmas in Whisper and Anna Barringer wants a doll. The settlement is new and no one can be spared to go to the city and shop with what little coin they have.

They aren’t even going to have a tree because the house is too small. Anna gathers berries and pinecones and with the help of the earth spirit that resides on Whisper decorates her own, outside.

The earth spirit has her own ideas about gifts and humans as she struggles to find a way to make the little girl happy.

Christmas Whispers is a short story of Whisper, although it takes place long before the series begins.

Callisto by Rob Lopez

Callisto is part of The Science Fiction Mayday Bundle, available May 1st through May 14th.


Today’s Spotlight is on Callisto by Rob Lopez.

The colonies on Callisto lie in ruins, the survivors living in fear of the militias who have taken over. Refugees hide in underground shelters, struggling to cope as supplies run low. Their only hope lies with the negotiations taking place in the shattered city of Cielo, where envoys from Earth are trying to bring an end to the disastrous civil war. There is only one problem, and his name is Shakespeare Cruz.

Shakespeare is one of the refugees, and he’s been on the run for seven years. The part he played in the conflict remains a mystery, and he won’t talk about it. He only hopes that certain people have forgotten about him, so he can raise his daughter in peace.

But somebody is coming for him, somebody who remembers exactly what he did, and he’s going to make him pay with more than just his life. Shakespeare’s secret past is about to be blown open and a titanic struggle will begin that could decide the fate of the moon. Or kill the one he loves. Only one thing is certain…

By the time it’s over, a lot of people are going to wish he’d never existed.

About Rob Lopez

Rob Lopez is a British author who hasn’t died yet. A perpetual daydreamer, he’s been a factory mechanic, a teaching assistant and a cleaner, plus a whole bunch of other jobs too dull to mention. He always wanted to write a novel, and now he’s written several, including the fast paced and hard hitting Alien Infiltrators series. He writes mostly dystopian science fiction and post-apocalyptic horror, with an emphasis on dark humour, action, love and death. He’s not nearly as miserable as that makes him sound, and he’s quite partial to relaxing by the sea and watching seagulls soar as he dreams up his next story.
