Here I am reading Chapter 1 from my debut science fiction novel, Other Systems.
This chapter introduces the idealistic stargazer Abigail Boyd Lei and her life on Earth prior to the Kiposi landing.
Parental Warning: Other Systems is an adult novel. Even though she is 17, in her culture, Abigail is considered an adult. She thinks about getting married and finds her crush in the communal washroom with another woman. The act is not described, only Abigail’s reactions to it.
