More About the Author

D.A. Boulter hates talking about himself in the 3rd person. Finds it annoying.

Since my early school days, Science Fiction and Fantasy have intrigued me, starting with Heinlein, whose Starship Troopers I read in the middle 60s, long before I knew about the social and political themes it carried. My seminal year, though, came in 1974 when I got my hands on a copy of Frank Herbert's "Dune", which fascinated me with its depth and breadth. At that moment I knew SF&F had hooked me.

However, it took another ten years before I seriously considered writing my own material and another ten after that before I began writing in earnest. Now, with the advent of e-readers, I find myself in the very strange position of being a published author, rather than someone who wrote for himself only. It gratifies me that many have read and enjoyed my works. Thank you.

I've worked as a cook, a first-aid attendant, weather observer, radar operator and tech. I've worked in the city, in the woods, and in the Arctic. Just now, I find myself on the West Coast of Canada, with my feline companion -- one of a line of cats who have shared my writing moments (and interrupted them as well).

And now, due to popular demand (2 people asked for it) I have a Blog

In science fiction, when one thinks of space travel through vast distances, there are usually three methods of travel. First is Faster Than Light (FTL) speed. Second is through Wormholes. Third is hibernation in space, where the passengers are in deep sleep while a skeleton crew operates the ship. The short story ColdSleep focuses on this third method of space travel, specifically what can go wrong with it.

The author weaves a very tight story from the perspective of the captain of a supply vessel, making an eleven months run from Earth to a space colony called Liberty. As the story moves along, the reader is peppered with hints here and there that something is very wrong aboard the ship. The wrongness finally comes to light at the very end of the story. . .

One may look at the Product Description and think 6300 words is too short a story to consider reading. But you should trust in Boulter and realize, once you read ColdSleep, that the story length is perfect. ColdSleep is highly recommended for fans of the author.

I've read all of Boulter's work. I liked this story and found he put some good thought into the timeline and plot. And the end twist was a nice touch.

This short story started well and there was a good build up with elements of suspense but then it just ended abruptly. It seemed to be building up to something interesting and then it was as if the writer just lost interest typed the THE END and left lots of issues hanging. I have read other things by this author so I know that this is not a true reflection of his work and I was very disappointed

Short story, but well-written and enjoyable. Since it is a short story, I can't write much without giving things away, so I'll just say that while I guessed the main plot-point, I wasn't sure until the very end that I was right. That's the mark of a good story.
