About Mark Henwick

I was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often. An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, I ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified me to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing. When not working, I get high by the slightly less conventional means of a small light aircraft. My first book, 'Sleight of Hand' is available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/Sa0D3n

  2. Justin says :

    πŸ™‚ That first line, good one mark.

  3. lito says :

    nice tension and a real cliffhanger!

  4. amper5andrew says :

    I really enjoyed that one, nice opener about the exploding ship.

    β€œI can’t say I like the way you say try” except she doesn’t say try. I think you’ve half edited that out.

    • amper5andrew says :

      No, I’m talking nonsense. I read that three times and disn’t see the word try. You can see why I’m not a proof reader.

      • Mark Henwick says :

        Lol. It *is* a clumsy construction, however, which leads the eye to miss things. I need the banter to be pin sharp and quick quick quick. I’ll probably edit the dialogue in this episode a bit.

  5. Zack says :

    In the last couple of episodes I’ve been impressed with what has seemed to me to be a great balance of action, and tech jargon. I am not an expert on space sci-fi, but I’ve read enough to separate them into the “I’m not buying it” and “physics/astronomy textbook” categories. These last four chapters have seemed to walk the knife edge between the two. To my limited understanding the science seemed believable, but kept things moving, and enhanced the tension, rather than taking away from it. Can’t wait to read more.

    • Mark Henwick says :

      Thank you, Zack.
      I’m always trying to bend the laws in believable ways that allow the story to move ahead. I’ve read some good SciFi which simply doesn’t bother to explain and some which tries to clarify quantum entanglement (!), but I prefer a sort of engineering approach – know enough to know how to use it. Yes, if it’s too much of a text book, it throws you out of the story. If it’s too unknown, and the plot depends on it, it becomes what critics call ‘handwavium’, or simply magic, and bends the genre.
      Glad I’ve got you on the edge. πŸ™‚
