Dear followers of Engineering Stories,
Thank you for your support to my short stories. Now, help me take my next step in the world of engineering stories by volunteering to read the draft of my new novelette, Polaris Station. It’s hard science fiction (theoretically possible) placed in the near future on and around planet Earth. Meet Kendall Parker, ambitious and arrogant, but bold and believing in his concept for dual-polar-geo-stationary space stations for solar and Earth observation. Find out the cost of failure as his outpost almost crashes to the Earth by the secret works of extremists and technical controversy ending his dream, his life, and his family. It’s about a 60 minute reading and I hope it will have you dreaming of real engineering possibilities in space. I’d like to test my storytelling and get your specific suggestions for better character development, story structure, description, and compelling scientific punch. Please reply and volunteer to read the story and give me feedback. As payment for very helpful suggestions, when it goes to print, I will give a free paperback copy of the book to the 10 reviewers whose comments are most useful.
If interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My best regards, Kenneth Hardman
