Fixit, she's out of this world....
This short novella follows Fixit, a worker on the surface of Tau Ceti Prime. She is an ace mechanic who keeps the automated harvesting machines in good running order. She has never missed a quota in her efforts help to feed all the people "topside" in the giant floating cities in the sky.
She has to make her first trip to the technologically advanced cities for the first time in her life to make an emergency shipment to New Terra City because Betweeners had hijacked the prior shipment.
With the help of her pinger friends, the maintenance drones who are there to aide her, she gets an old airship repaired to make the flight.
But things go bad when she is intercepted by those same pirates. Can she hold out until the Sky Guard can arrive?

Loved it!

Great short story! I didn't even bother reading the description before wanting this book. Erik and Hollie are a perfect combo! Great sci-fi short about mechanic and and her A.I. friends. And of course a sweet little female romance which I always enjoy in Erik's books. Of course I think it's Hollie's voice that makes it so much sweeter!

Interesting World

This is an interesting world, which almost seems like a Star Wars subplot. A longer version of this would be excellent. The narrator has a sexy voice. I want to see what happens between the main character and the Amazon. There are three worlds to explore. There are the few people on the ground, the betweeners and the floating city people. In a longer version I believe she could spend more time with her machines, developing that relationship and she could help us to feel, smell and know the world she invented.

Gay and Lesbian
I am glad this appeared under Sci-Fi Contemporary, as most of the author's work seems to be pigeon holed into the gay and lesbian category. Not being either, I would not have ever discovered her work. I will buy the sequel to this and if I like it, I will check out some of her other works.

I already said she has a sexy voice, what more do you want?
