Aussie #02 — Hansell’s Hope

Hansell’s Hope

by Deborah K. Lauro

When Michael went to Austin’s Playground, a penal colony in the far reaches of explored space, he thought he’d left behind his life at Centauri University as his grandfather’s apprentice. Instead of continuing to pursue his doctorate in artificial intelligence, he decides to work toward becoming a medical doctor, hoping he’ll never have to deal with lying androids again. But when his past comes back to haunt him, will he be able to protect his new wife and her adoptive father, the geneticist who in his youth 150 years ago created the most hated creature on the planet, Hansell’s man-eating dragon?
