Teleoperated robots on the Moon (and Amazon)

My science fiction novelette, High Moon, was originally published in the May 2005 issue of Analog Science Fiction and Fact Magazine. Ten years later, I’ve learned how to upload stories to Amazon so that it can be read on Kindle and Kindle-compatible devices.

Here’s the story blurb:

A few years in the future, Clavius Crater on the Moon is being prospected and mined by small robots teleoperated from Earth. Brian and Lester, who work as lunar mining robot teleoperators for one of the numerous small start-ups seeking to meet Earth’s ever-increasing demand for palladium, must confront a huge consortium-owned robot named Big Bart, which seems bent on destroying the entire lunar mining industry on behalf of its masters.

That would be bad enough, but from Brian’s point of view, even worse is that everyone on the Moon seems to think it’s the Old American West, pushing his tiny robotic avatar, Wiley, into a gun-blazing showdown with Black Bart on the dusty streets of Clavius Gulch!

The link to Amazon is: High Moon: A telerobotic lunar Western.
