Chronicles from Outer Space

Chronicles from Outer Space is available here, here, and here.

Chronicles From Outer Space, is set on a distant area of the Milky Way where a cluster of asteroids is the center of an incredible round of bad politics between six alien species. Ilko and his friends are unwillingly caught in this thrilling mix up and they struggle very hard to get out of it, but the mystery unfolds only with their visit on Planet Earth.
Here's a sample...
The Star Mermaid wreck was still there as they had left it. The dust was all over the place and the little felines had virtually become owners of the place. Many things had been moved, some were tampered with and other stuff was piled up forming mounds of rubble that were not there before. In the Mess Hall the main refrigerators were still working, but doors were left open and the food inside spoiled and contaminated the air all around it with a bad smell.
They realized that their lives had been violated when they reached their personal quarters. For a short moment memories re-surfaced and they felt deeply frustrated, everything around them brought back images and thoughts of the past, and all the good time spent on that ship. The Mermaid was their first investment and gave them lots of satisfaction until the day of the disaster. Then everything faded into nothing.
“Enough!” Ilko said. “We’ve wept enough, it’s time to leave.”
“You are right, Captain. I am curious though to know how much time has passed since we were abducted? How long we’ve been prisoners of the old people?”
Ilko did not answer, but knew his chief of security was right, and something had to be done to bring their lives back on track.
“By the amount of dust it seems long enough...”  
“We must find them. Let's go.” Ilko said interrupting Daksh sentence. He was certain there was a good explanation for it, however they would have to work harder to find all the right answers.
With a couple of flashlights found in the rubble, they left the crash area and followed the secretly marked path with signs that led to the cave, where the containers were hidden. They entered trying not to offset too much the foliage used to conceal the opening and walked down the tunnel all the way to the end. The containers were still there, just as they had left. Suddenly a suspicious feeling aroused Ilko’s curiosity and he quickly opened the closest one to check the inside. The expression on his face showed disbelief then turned into disappointment and then he yelled out loudly with rage. The container was empty!
“Empty!” Daksh screamed outrageously. “Zogt! They took them while we were asleep. Zogt be damned forever!” He shouted louder and louder while opening all the containers, one after the other.
They were both boiling with rage, and wondering what was the reason for that? Who took the diamonds? Especially why was this happening to them? Why, why, why? They were ready to commit a crime just to have an answer to those questions; and what would they say to their friends expecting them back with good news...

Storie di Altri Mondi

Storie di Altri Mondi is the Italian version of Chronicles from Outer Space.

Storie di Altri Mondi si svolge in una zona remota della Via Lattea, dove in un Agglomerato di Asteroidi delle civilta' aliene si confrontano in un incredibile intreccio di fatti politici. Involontariamente Ilko ed i suo amici si trovano coinvolti, e dopo una serie di strabilianti avventure il mistero si svela, ma e solo dopo una veloce visita al Pianeta Terra. Queto racconto sci-fi e' disponibile in versione libro o e-book qui oppure qui
Eccovi uno spezzone...
Per parecchi minuti rimasero silenziosi e titubanti a guardare mentre il tempo passava e loro non si decidevano. Inevitabilmente Daksh era uscito da un dilemma per caderne in un altro, ma qualcosa doveva fare per avviare un’azione di soccorso. Questa volta, però, a tirarlo fuori d’impaccio fu un Inspiegabile Fatto Paranormale (IFP), come veniva comunemente chiamato sul pianeta Arzahgo, o un Miracolo, come invece era comunemente chiamato sul pianeta Terra.
Lo si chiami comunque si voglia, ma il fatto avvenne, e lasciò il gruppo di arzahgeni stupiti e con una pennellata di gioia sul viso. Da sotto il Navigante un altro pezzo della carlinga si era staccato, senza il lampo però, ed un gruppo di cosmonauti era uscito buttandosi nel vuoto in direzione del Dardo. Era una richiesta di soccorso per una speranza di vita.
– Guardate! Si sono eiettati e ci vengono incontro! – gridò Remia.
– Oh! Dimora Divina! – esclamò Reya – Viscido, Pilota, andiamoli a prendere, non possiamo lasciarli! Dopo tutto sono i nostri amici.
– Va bene, va bene! Ci sto pensando. – gridò Aràd, preoccupato – Ci possiamo avvicinare solo a una ventina di chiloter, non di più. Non so in che condizioni è il Navigante, potrebbe esplodere in qualsiasi momento. – e poi sottovoce aggiunse: – Anche io odio le ripetizioni.
Invece un’idea esplose nella mente di Daksh.
– So io come! Aràd potresti fare una manovra di avvicinamento velocissima e subito dopo una di allontanamento?
– Come?... Oh!... Ho capito cosa vuoi fare, ma dobbiamo fare prestissimo.
– Allora preparati al mio via esegui immediatamente, così evitiamo l’onda d’urto. Vieni con me Remia anche tu Xoemi. Naldo aprimi il portello frontale.
Il Capo impartiva ordini mentre imboccava la rampa di corsa e come un lampo attraversava i corridoi inseguito dalle colleghe verso il Comparto Stagno, che custodiva l’equipaggiamento e attrezzi vari per le attività extra veicolari, situato sul naso dell’astronave...

Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one question.St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that crashed into the iceberg? They just made a movie about it." The teacher answered quickly, "That would be the Titanic." St. Peter let him through the gate.St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn't REALLY need all the odors that this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a little harder: "How many people died on the ship?" Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered, "about 1,500.""That's right! You may enter." St. Peter then turned to the lawyer. "Name them."
