Tails and Fixers is a Sci-Fi novel that deals with survival on a far distant hostile world. In the end it is a love story with both sorrow and great hope.
Floyd was slowly dying and was given the chance to live; if he would agree to be an emissary from Earth. He is sent on a one way mission to a distant world in return for the promise of restored health from a secret stem cell treatment. He and his computer partner arrive fifty Earth years later only to find a planet which had been decimated by a major asteroid strike. The only survivors live in the Sanctuary deep below a mountain. The ruling council finds the idea of democracy a threat to the stability of the Sanctuary. Floyd is evicted from the Sanctuary to an expected death from the elements. Lina with her long fluffy tail, and Tesla a fixer, were to be eliminated in order to sanitize the thinking within the Sanctuary. With the help of the other fixers they escape and join Floyd in his struggle for survival.
This is an interesing premise for a SciFi saga: one human sent to a planet sending a distress signal that has 2 very different intelligent species and how they all interact. It is not a predicatble story and it kept my interest. For me that's the best kind of SciFi book.
