AL CLARK ~ Christopher’s Journal ~
Chris woke three days ago when his stasis chamber shut down and the lid popped open. A safety mechanism buried deep within the bowels of the pod decided it was time for him to wake up.
He is sixteen years old and fresh out of Space Academy. This is his first experience with stasis. For the first few days the after effects of the hibernation unit left him confused and disoriented, to the point where it was difficult to function.
After staggering into the corridor he entered the nearest room to spend the first few days lying in the bare bed. In time his head stopped pounding and he could move about without getting dizzy. A quick inspection of the compartment told him he had stumbled into a suite of aged and unused living quarters.
Lighting in the neutral gray passageway was minimal, with every third lighting panel lit; creating long shadows. When he stepped into any of the compartments the lighting rose to normal, reassuring him the ship was not without power. The offending hiber-pod was stuffed into a small compartment sandwiched between living quarters, which were staggered down the long curving corridor of the expansive habitat ring.
None of the computer terminals were operational, and all the rooms off the passageway seemed unused and worn by time. The lack of clues available to explain his predicament was disturbing. He was told he would wake in a medical facility staffed with white coated professionals. His current circumstances were far from the case. There are no hibernation specialists to ease his transition to the waking world. No soft clean bed to recover in. No smiling experts. Whether he lives or dies has been left to his own resources.
The living quarters are unfurnished and include a small unused shower. Some of the suites have an extra room for couples with a child. All are empty with stale air and a slight odor of decay.
Christopher Morris is soon to turn seventeen years old while trapped aboard a silent, empty starship. His short blonde hair and brown eyes make him appear even younger. Although, at six foot-two inches tall he has to duck to get through the compartment hatchways.
From this point forward his existence depends on whether he is clever enough to save himself. He is a methodical boy by nature; intending from the day of liftoff to document his experience of traveling to a new planet. His entries in the book started much sooner than he thought. The following is his journal.
The final installment to the Al Clark Series is now available in eBook, Paperback, and Audio formats, as is all the books in the Al Clark Series. If your preference is listening to your Science Fiction, now you can hear the complete series through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

The story is a short prequel to the series that introduces you to a main character in the Al Clark Series. He is prematurely awakened from stasis and endures almost a year trapped in a portion of a crippled starship alone and fearing the worst.
To kill time and stay sane, Chris documented his ordeal in a journal, complete with drawings to illustrate his confinement. This book is a copy of that journal.

Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)
Chris is nursing a badly sprained ankle and has time to kill, so he created his own Chessboard and pieces. He and his father played chess when Chris was younger and those days he remembers fondly. Playing against himself is not as fun, but it passes the time. The diagrams at the top helped to reintroduce him to the game.
He cut the chess pieces from paper, with the ‘black’ pieces dyed using coffee grounds from a pre-packaged breakfast. Although crude, it’s good enough to play the game.
Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)
Christopher is alone, and trapped in the habitat ring of an aged colonial starship. He doesn’t know if the rest of the colonists are sleeping or dead. He is unsure what to do. This scenario was not covered at the Spacer’s Academy.
This is another drawing from his journal that documents his predicament. To help maintain his sanity he must find ways to stay busy and kill time. Drawing not only kills time, it helps ward off going crazy.
This is an experimental design for promotional purposes. I’m new to posting and want to learn more about sizing and impact. Canva is cool.
Another Milestone in Writing
I have received the proof copy of the fourth book in my AL CLARK Series and approved it for publication. That makes all four books in the series available in eBook or Paperback format, and I’m thoroughly pleased with myself.
This makes five books if you include my SciFi Adventure – VINCENT. All I need is another fifteen books to call myself an author 🙂
