Launch into space, the future and beyond!

Enjoy a humorous look at life in space through the eyes of some colorful characters in this collection of five unique sci-fi tales by Christina Engela, spanning everything from adventure to suspense to comedy and then back again!

“It’s refreshing to read some old-school action sci-fi that works more on the story than the plausibility of the sciences in it.” – Anike Kirsten, author of “Of Beasts And Men”.

“Christina Engela has one of the most unique and captivating styles I’ve encountered in science fiction. Elements of the thriller, fantasy/horror and big dollops of Douglas Adamsesque humor combine with hard science to make a winning and highly readable blend.” – Alex S. Johnson, author of The Doom Hippies.

A Refreshing View On Space Travel With A Twist!

“Space does actually suck! Loved this story. Really enjoyed reading it. A refreshing view on space travel with a twist!” – W.G. on ‘Space Sucks!‘, Kobo, January 01, 2017.

Your Writing Strikes A Chord

“This [‘Beyond‘] was such a good Sci-Fi story!! Loved it. When I got to it in the anthology (‘For Love of Leelah‘), and read the opening, I was like OOOOH Sci-Fi… and then came all the twists. For a short story, it packed a wonderful punch with modern issues being addressed.” – Corinne Kilgore, November 10, 2015.

Christina Is A Wonderful Sci-fi Author

“‘Beyond‘ is the story of an officer asked to betray his friend and former partner when her past comes into question, it’s a very powerful story and shows the impact one person can have on another by only a few simple acts.” – Amanda M. Lyons, November 10, 2015.

Your Writing Strikes A Chord

“I have read some of your work. Your writing strikes a chord and I would just like to say thanks.” – Len Turner,  reader, September 12, 2014.

Addicted To Your Writing Style

“Dear Christina, I downloaded your book “Space Sux” from Obooko – Best story for me was ‘A Really Bad Day In The Life Of Lance Corporal Thomas O’Blivion‘. Those stories spurred me on to read ‘Blachart’ – and loved it. So then ‘Black Sunrise’ – and now addicted to your writing style, I have just finished ‘Dead Man’s Hammer’.” – Robin Ellis, August 02, 2013.
