#SciFi Snippet for #SFFSat from Grand Master's Game

Welcome to another Saturday of Science Fiction & Fantasy and read snippets exchanged by several writers.
I switched stories to give you a Halloween snippet from Grand Master’s Game and some viewers asked how she got rid of the slime. Last week’s snippet is here ending in “Where were you?” she demanded angrily.

“Distracted, my brave little pawn. There are scrawls like writing on the opposite side of the domes.”
She leaned against his firm chest, breathing in the spicy psi emissions. “I was trapped in the mouth of an enormous worm.”
“I see the damage you caused.” Looking down, she saw sinuous streaks in the desert floor left by the agonized writhing of the monster. Its body had vanished under the sands.
Athanor remarked casually, “Your shiny coating of slime does not appeal to me. The odor is repugnant.” 
Her irritation soothed by his embrace, Violet’s response was mild, “Could be worse. I could have slipped down its gullet. Dunk me in the river!” 
“I’ll do better.” Blue psi misted over her body and the slime vanished.
She voiced her approval of his technique, “Flashy cleanser.”

Grand Master’s Pawn is 99c this month.

I hope to have book 3, Grand Master's Mate ready in December. 
Please return to and read the other snippets.
Your comments are welcome as always.


  1. Athanar likes showing off! I like the phrase "spicy psi emissions" - all sorts of mental images are generated by that phrase!

  2. “Your shiny coating of slime does not appeal to me." LOL!

  3. I wish I could get that clean with just someone using energy...would save a lot of time and money. :)

    1. Of course, although it does take psi energy which is not infinite. He has to rest after major psi expenditures.

  4. A psi shower! Love it! :D I also love that the work they do leaves behind signatures, such as pain if they hurt something. I bet that comes in handy.

    1. Our psychics have slightly different rules, but there are penalties.
