Into the Known Universe
A Cosmic Love Story, Kinda
by James R.D. Hilton

Junior Reclamation Agent Stuart Bode is offered the promotion of his dreams (with a private office to boot) in exchange for a seemingly simple task: tracking down a stolen corporate freighter and recovering its cargo. “If the cargo ain’t recoverable,” his boss, Asset Protection Commander Proseus Oort II, growls, “terminate it.” Stuart’s simple assignment becomes decidedly less so when he finds the missing freighter only to discover that the “cargo” is none other than Janna, Commander Oort’s runaway bride. Hell-bent on seeing the stars, she has no intention of allowing Stuart or anyone else to reclaim her, no matter how spacious his new office is. Stuart is faced with a terrible choice: complete his assignment and secure his promotion or allow Janna to escape while he returns to Oort to face the consequences. He’s still deciding when the pirates show up. Though their journey into the known universe is just beginning, it’s shaping up to be one hell of a ride.

James R. D. Hilton is a lifelong student of science fiction, his mind having been warped at a tender young age by the Space channel, not to mention the works of Douglas Adams, Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein, and Kurt Vonnegut. He majored in Communications and Media at Providence University College, studied Television Writing and Producing at Humber College, and once took a creative writing class, but was suspended for excessive doodling. The language of cinema is his greatest passion, and his enthusiasm for the films he grew up with shapes the stories he writes. His previous credits include multiple short stories published in Pulp Kings magazine, where the Known Universe was born. He resides somewhere in his home province of Alberta, where he may occasionally be spotted outside smoking his pipe and petting stray cats. Follow him on Instagram at @jamesrdhilton
