Get Your EFT v3.1!
So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.
Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.
The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

EFT v2.4 Now @ DriveThru!
They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.
Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terra’s own bloody history which might avoid the horror of war. And if there is, what resistance might there be from those who crave the battlefield?
These questions are answered and more in 40 pages of “The Christmas War”.

The Transcript For This Page
Re-establish the scene: Guy, Pierre, Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry, Suki, the koi ponds (which are now very important), the bambo beyond.
Rosenberg: Please, Sv LeBoeuf! I have not finished.
Rosenberg: The field of combat is in the central koi pond, immediately behind me.
Medium close-up on Pierre, looking shocked.
Pierre: What! Uh â€¦ how deep is it?
Sherwood steps forward to answer Pierre's question. Include Pierre and Rosenberg in the shot, with Henry and Suki behind him. Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry and Suki are grinning.
Sherwood: It varies between about 160 and 165 centimeters.
Medium shot of Pierre, about to blow his stack. Guy, also grinning, stands by.
Pierre: But, that's nearly to the top of my head!
Pierre: This pĂ©dĂ© would have the advantage! That is not fair!
Medium close-up of Rosenberg, smiling a bit as he speaks. Leave plenty of room for the dialog.
Rosenberg: But fighting with swords would have given you a clear advantage over Sv Freeman.
Rosenberg: You had no problem with that, did you?
Rosenberg: Yet, you complain if the circumstances favor your opponent.
Two-shot of Rosenberg and Pierre. Pierre can barely contain his rage.
Rosenberg: Sv LeBoeuf, you have two choices.
Rosenberg: Swim â€“ or sleep â€“ with the fishes or abandon your challenge. Which shall it be?
Pierre, his face very red, stalks away from the group, towards the right side of the panel. In the middle ground, Guy addresses the group. He is partly turned so that we can see him grinning. The rest of the group is all smiles.
Guy: As Second for Sv Pierre LeBoeuf, I hereby abandon his challenge to Sv Freeman.
