Mars Deep-Crust Mine ZB203-South

My short story “Mars Deep-Crust Mine ZB203-South” is now available at The Cross and The Cosmos. Please drop by if you have time and let me know what you think.


(You may spot one or two spelling mistakes in the story that slipped though the spillchucker. Please ignore them.)

About P.A.Baines

P.A.Baines writes computer programs for a living but would much rather be writing Christian speculative fiction, which he does whenever he gets the opportunity. Educated in Africa, he is studying towards a degree in Creative Writing through Buckinghamshire New University in England. He enjoys asking "what if?" but is tired of how speculative fiction deals with religion in general and the God of the Bible in particular. His stories are for Christians who enjoy science fiction but who normally avoid the genre because of its tendency towards an atheistic world-view. His aim is to write entertaining and thought-provoking stories that stretch the imagination, but which keep God in His rightful place as Lord over all creation. P.A.Baines is British but currently lives in a small corner of the Netherlands with his wife and two children and various wildlife. He spends what little spare time he has keeping fit, watching films, and playing computer games with his children. He does most of his reading via audio books, which he listens to while commuting to and from work on his trusty bicycle. He speaks reasonable Dutch and is in the process of learning French.

  1. I’ve read your story. It was interesting. You have a good way of describing things. I felt as if I was there. Now I’m prepped for your upcoming novel! 😉

  2. Wow, your story was really interesting! I am also looking forward to Alpha even more now!

  3. Thanks for reading it guys. I really appreciate it.

    I’m working flat-out at the moment to get Alpha ready. Next it goes to the editor and then back to me for any final changes, after which it should be ship-shape and ready to go.

    I’ve got a serious case of opening-night nerves at the moment, but it helps to stay busy :-).

  4. Remind me not to become a miner on Mars. Terrifying thought even without the metaphysics. Vivid descriptions and I could “feel” the characters too.
