Taking Time


Science fiction stories of time and space...

The future of humanity must be decided in Next Phase. Winning the Planetary Lottery is not as lucky as it first seems in Schrodinger's Gamble. An apocalypse and its aftermath threaten to tear one couple apart in Daiker's Children. In Life As I Know It a reclusive man finds both his heart and home invaded during an alien harvest. 

In Taking Time a vampire seeking shelter on a distant planet finds himself facing a very different kind of demon, after answering a frontier settlement's plea for help.

Stories range from flash fiction to novelette in length.

What people are saying:

‘A fantastic collection of dark science-fiction stories. These well-written tales transport the reader to a place where terror takes a hold of your soul, and something as innocent as the lottery can mean so much more.’

-Christine Rains, author of The 13th Floor series

'Short stories are usually hit and miss for me but here is a collection that I adored every single one. Each was well written and I was extremely impressed over the amount of characterisation that Garratt got into them. They were well paced and kept me turning pages, only to enjoy the twist at the end. Nothing more to say except this book is a super read. Loved it!'

-Graeme Ing, author of Ocean of Dust

'I LOVED all the stories in this book, and especially Daiker's Children. It is extremely well written by an amazingly talented author. I recommend this book to everyone!' 

-Ida Jansson

'Thank you, Ellie Garratt, for bringing the joy of written SciFi back into my life. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the short stories in this collection. The author was able to make me totally believe in each of the worlds she created - be it a future version of Earth, or another planet, or a space-traveling colony ship. What's more, these stories do not just entertain (though they do that very well), but also make you think about life in our own world.'
