Test Pilot

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Space was a dangerous place and the new technology being developed needed to be thoroughly tested before others benefited. Members of the Skull Squadron performed those tests, often losing their lives in the process. Captain Gregg Johnson was the best the Skull Squadron had to offer.

Experimental drugs, which made him faster and more responsive, ran through his veins while he listened to the details of his next assignment. He was given an exotic new suit with stars floating through the material while at his side rested his trusty hand cannon.

XOXO-13 was the designation for an experimental spaceship Gregg named Hugs and Kisses. When a tiny thing goes wrong in space, it becomes a very large thing. Gregg pushes the forbidden red button to escape the certain crash he is headed to.

Test Pilot is a short story.

Customer Reviews


I liked the overall idea and plot of this short story. Unfortunately it suffered from poor writing skills. I could not stop thinking as I read it, that it was written by a teenager as a school assignment.

Awesome imagination!

A certain percent of the population wonders when something like this may become reality (I am part of that percentage), but the thought of all the politics that would be involved turns me off. Japanese animation has been doing this genre (never thought I would ever use that word) with the Macross series - Robotech here in the states back in the eighties. Oh the day that I long for when giant robots and transforming spacecraft become reality.

It had its ups and downs
