WAITING WEAPON

Available from Champagne Books

Beware when you dig up your own alien past. It may do far worse than haunt you.

Archaeologist Richard Pinn returns to the ruins of an alien city to find out why its vanished race had abandoned him and his female Me'Aukin counterpart. For three hundred years, he and Jamie Brinwall had been little more than artifacts themselves. Humans found them as embryos kept barely alive in cryogenic tanks, but for what reason? Neither Rick, nor his corporate sponsors who intend re-colonizing the world, are prepared for the truth that has waited for him with an undying vengeance.

CHAPTER ONEJaw sagging, Richard Pinn watched the woman drift outof the crumbling inner wall. The apparition was not human,but one of his own vanished race. She wore a white blousewhose sleeves were richly embroidered with tiny brown andgreen fish.
Me’Aukin
 
Totemic symbols
, he realized. Thewoman’s diminutive slender figure was enhanced by a hip-hugging green skirt that swirled around matching evergreentrousers. She had shoulder-length black hair sweepingaround a narrow nose and thin lips. Large doe-like eyesseemed to burn with an inner torment. “Jamie?” hewhispered.“Rick?” Andrea’s voice came from over his shoulder.The freckled archeologist walked next to him, dusting dirtoff of her rumpled red plaid shirt. “Um...Jamie’s back upat Kenner’s Basin and you’re staring at a wall.”“I’m looking at a Me’Aukin woman in her latethirties.” Rick blinked his eyes, but the vision didn’t goaway. His hallucination turned, paused, and looked overher shoulder at him.
 
Meora Co’Oden
,” she whispered.
Tanee, th’repesme’oke
,
du’tene Weth.
Turning, the image vanished intothe wall.“She just said that her name’s Meora from the FamilyTanee of Clan Weth.” He looked at Andrea’s widening eyes.Rick gave an uncertain laugh. “I think I just saw a ghost.”“I think you’re getting out of here,” Andrea repliedwith a stricken look.Rick put a gentle, yet firm, hand on her arm. He feltfar more fascinated than terrified. “It’s all right.”“All right?” She pointed down the hall with herlight. “You stand there like you’re in a trance, and tellme it’s all right that you just saw a ghost?”“I don’t know what the hell I saw,” he replied, movingdown the hall after the specter. “I do know that she washeading toward the dome room. It could be a hologram.”“That I couldn’t see or hear?” Anguish pulled atAndrea’s lips as she stepped in front of Rick and turned toblock him. “This place is dead, Rick! No activity...nothing!” Her voice softened. “You so badly want to findthem, don’t you?”He took a deep breath. Andrea stabbed to the heart ofhis desire with her usual accuracy. “Ok, maybe that’s moreof what’s going on here.”
