Title: Teal Dissociated
Author: Clabe Polk
Genre: Science Fiction, Short Story
Everyone thought Devon Traxler died along with the crew of her hovercraft.
Imagine their surprise when she washed up on the Teal Colony’s pristine beach…pregnant. With no rational explanation for the pregnancy.
Imagine their surprise to discover a planet teeming with individual cells that function as one worldwide organism…a genetic Rubik’s Cube.
Imagine their surprise to learn Traxler’s pregnancy is related to their discovery.
Now, imagine the profound implications for the human race.
Authors have been using short stories for the preferred venue for sci-fi probably longer than I have been alive. It doesn't take the reader long while reading this story to start to think this is another classic.
It struck me early that this was a story that could have been penned by Ray Bradbury. The Bradbury-like feel is remarkable, and the book has all the components that a great sci-fi story needs.
The concept of Teal Dissociated also reminded me of something Gene Rodenberry might have thought of.
If you love sci-fi, you will love this book.
