Noise? Corruption? Bugs? This is not the vacation Maya signed up for.

"I gave this short story five stellar stars!...a great story through and through." —Jaunts & Haunts Book Review

Maya has convinced her husband Joel to forego their usual holiday to take her trip of a lifetime. The company SpaceWalk promises adventure, unparalleled views, and, for those who purchase the Enhanced Package, a chance to take part in an actual space walk.

Eager to experience the final frontier, Maya spends all of her and Joel’s savings on the enhanced package. But when she ventures outside the ship for her first walk, Maya soon discovers she’s not alone. Not in the depths of space, nor within her spacesuit.

What starts out a dream vacation quickly turns dangerous, not only for the passengers and crew, but, thanks to corruption from within SpaceWalk, for all of humanity.

If you like a little snarky humor with your apocalyptic terror and aren’t squeamish, you’ll love Space Walk.

A great short story

I gave this short story five stellar stars!

This was my first read by Tammie Painter, and I was really swept away by how great this was.

In a nutshell, a bickering couple takes a vacation up in space and gets more than they bargained for.

This was a great story through and through.

The main character was great. She and her husband really had some issues, and the portrayal felt authentic. The other characters we interact with also felt genuine and well thought out.

The plot was simple but effective. They are in space, but they aren't alone. The repercussions of this little vacation may just affect the whole of humanity, and it was believable.

What really sold me on this story were the elements of space, horror, and mystery. I love a good chill and thrill, and this had both in just a short time.

The writing was simple, seamless, and well-executed. No purple prose here! I blitzed through those pages like nobody's business.

All in all, this was the perfect light read for me, and I'm definitely going to check out more of Painter's work in the near future!

Definitely worth a read!
