Read and Excerpt. Exclusive to Adventure Worlds Press:
Heathrow Airport, being first and foremost an airport, and secondly, a product of the military industrial transportation complex, had clearly been designed by an architect who worshiped at the altar of some unknown god of confusion and banality. In a haze of forgetfulness, Alice muddled through the maze of escalators and coffee-coloured hallways, finally finding her way to baggage claim. She had been there for exactly nine-and-a-half seconds when her mobile rang.
“Hello?” she asked, sleepily.
“Either you have taken a job at NORAD and you’re on twenty-four-hour missile watch or you’ve just gotten off the flight from Heathrow,” Malcolm said.
“I should have gone to graduate school in Tokyo,” Alice mumbled. “I could have taken the Orient Express whenever I came back home.”
“I can’t imagine that the stars would be much to look at under the Tokyo lights.”
“I just spent the night sleeping between two strangers, in a chair the size of a dishrag. Changing majors seems like a small price to pay.”
He considered this. “Strictly speaking, there’s really a very small pool of Astrophysicists who have spectacular breasts. It would be a shame to lose you to French Literature.”
“Why would I be studying French Literature in Tokyo?”
“You know, I hear that Baudelaire isn’t the same until you’ve read it in the original Japanese.”
Alice groaned. In the world of Astrophysicists, there are claims to fame, and there are claims to fame. Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, and Isaac Newton had the former. Alice on the other hand, had the latter. Alice was known far and wide as the world’s sexiest astrophysicist. Her hold on the title of sexiest astrophysicist had nothing to do with appearance; anybody walking through the airport would see an attractive but ordinary woman, in possession of soft curves, pale blue eyes, and a head of curly red hair that seemed to prove the laws of electromagnetism fairly distinctly. For the past two years, Alice had been the sultry, deep-throated voice of Astropod, a weekly podcast about astronomy, physics, and the known universe. Alice had over twenty thousand regular listeners. It was a project that she had begun at the invitation of Malcolm Oliver, who had invited her to be his co-host after hearing her give a presentation on galaxy superstructures as an undergraduate student. Although starting the podcast had been Malcolm’s idea, she hadn’t actually heard his voice in a while. She didn’t want to admit it, but his deep intonation and dry delivery were comforting. “Is that what you’re working on, these days?” she asked him. “Baudelaire?”
“I’m exploring the theoretical parameters of multidimensional space time with regard to fictional realism,” Malcolm said. “Baudelaire wrote poetry, so unless you’re planning on visiting a universe where everyone speaks naturally in blank verse, I think that probably his work and mine aren’t going to intersect. How was the flight?”
“I’m exhausted, my back hurts, and I need to take a shower with roughly the same level of urgency as a monkey at a rock concert,” Alice admitted. Then, without thinking about it, she admitted something else. “I’ve missed you,” she said.
