THOSE DARK PLACES: Jonathan Hicks, published twice in the British Science Fiction Association's writer's magazine 'FOCUS' and the mission designer/dialogue writer of the mobile telephone game of acclaimed television show 'Battlestar Galactica', presents twelve short stories about the little people in the big universe.
"I grew up with the grandiose science fiction tales, in books and on film, with great galaxy-spanning adventures or life-changing technologies," said Jonathan Hicks. "In this book I concentrate on the 'little guy', the people who work behind the scenes and those who get a less than stellar deal out of the supposed adventure travelling the galaxy and exploring new technologies offers."

ALL FALL DOWN: VITALS is the story of a man alone on a gigantic generation starship, the ‘Heart’s Endeavour’, looking after thousands of frozen travellers with only an artificial intelligence for company. When the AI manifests itself as a hologram so that the man can interact with it more effectively, the relationship takes an unexpected turn.
I DO NOT REMEMBER THE STARS OF OLD is a continuation of the story ‘Geta Huda Sharoon’, a short story included in the book ‘Those Dark Places’ which is reproduced in this publication for clarity. It follows the adventures of Brune, an Ooman despised by all other races trying to find his way through a galaxy that would rather see his kind dead.
ALL FALL DOWN is the story of an apparently unimportant battle on an unimportant world. You cannot weep for a future doomed by ignorance.
