Alone

Salvo Press

Mellé had it all—wealth, power, prestige and the love of Dulce Cœur, the greatest musical composer of the Golden Age of Euterpe. When the bubble of Mellé’s life bursts, she returns to her home planet Hattonia and buys the Intrinsic, a secondhand spaceship. In the bargain, she gets Michael, its android pilot. Eighty-one years later in a remote area of space, Michael ceases to function and Mellé faces a future alone. In the depths of her grief over losing Michael, she realizes she was fooling herself. She had thought of Michael as loyal, efficient, and reliable, but he was more—she loved him. Now Mellé knows that love was not a rose as Dulce always insisted. Love was a tenacious weed that could never be destroyed. Docking on Calypso, Mellé finds herself on an alien world. She is 113 years old and disconnected from her natural time and place, but her life was getting started yet again.

About the author

Martha Fawcett is founder and honorary curator of Martha Fawcett Archives. Just before she was born, Jana Nova, Executive Director of the Janaforma Clearinghouse Project, brought the Gathering's attention to her waiting potential. Jana Nova described Martha as if her achievements were a fait acompli. "She was lively, a curious artist, a person with an excellent imagination and acute receptive skills." Martha was born an Aquarian in the heart of the American Midwest. Growing up in Tiffin, Ohio, in the middle of the Twentieth Century, it was a hotbed of "Alien Invasion" stories, rumors about "Area 51," and tales of a mysterious race of humanoids called, "The Grays." With the powerful genetic influence of the Fawcett storytellers in her blood, Martha became a writer of science fiction. Shortly after we introduced ourselves to her, she offered to help us disseminate the Janaforma message to Humanity. Many Janaforma individuals took an interest in educating her. It took years to teach her the various planetary languages and for her to fully understand the Janaforma concept of Community. Our relationship with Martha has not been strictly a one-way street. Through her, we have learned much about how Humans view the universe and the seminal denial they soon will carry with them into the stars. Meanwhile, we continue to work with her through the Martha Fawcett Archives and trust that our message will find a way into your hearts.
