The prompt for this month’s fiction in fifty words came just as I was playing with the second book in the Viridian series. If you’re keen to be a beta reader of the first book, The Perihelix, and I haven’t sent it to you yet, let me know immediately!
Back to the plot, which is Bruce Gargoyle’s Fiction in Fifty words…. on the theme of A Calculated Risk. I don’t seem to have a title for this, apart from the prompt itself. Reduces risk, I suppose. It’s Lars, the Swede, speaking.
A Calculated Risk
“Ok, let’s get this straight. The chance of returning to the Alpha Quadrant is one in seven million two hundred thousand; the chance of surviving this warp jump is one in seven million one hundred and fifty thousand.
That sounds like fifty thousand chances in our favour then. Let’s go!”
