Forbidden System – Chapter 1

This exciting prequel book tells two different Silky stories. One is the story of how Gav and Silky meet and team up. The other is the story of Eyanna Ora, Silky’s first human companion. They are told concurrently but actually happen over 100 year apart. Enjoy!

1. Gav Gendin

The Outworld Ranger, a sleek, Q34-C lightweight cruiser, dropped out of hyperspace on the edge of a remote, uncharted star

Quotes by David Alastair Hayden  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Uncontrolled love could turn into obsession. A desire to help others could lead to wanting to control them, to fascism. Compassion, however, will never lead you astray. Remember that. Have compassion on your friends, strangers, enemies, even yourself.”
David Alastair Hayden, Breaking Point

“When forced to leave my house for an extended period of time, I take my typewriter with me, and together we endure the wretchedness of passing through the X-ray scanner. The laptops roll merrily down the belt, while I’m instructed to stand aside and open my bag. To me it seems like a normal enough thing to be carrying, but the typewriter’s declining popularity arouses suspicion and I wind up eliciting the sort of reaction one might expect when traveling with a cannon.

It’s a typewriter,’ I say. ‘You use it to write angry letters to airport security.”
David Sedaris

“I hate horses. I know people who think that they are noble, graceful animals, but regardless of what a horse looks like from a distance, never forget that it's as likely to step on your foot as look at you.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Thief

“The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

“The water nymphs who came to Poseidon
explained how little they desired to couple
with the gods. Except to find out
whether it was different, whether there was
a fresh world, another dimension in their loins.
In the old Pittsburgh, we dreamed of a city
where women read Proust in the original French,
and wondered whether we would cross over
into a different joy if we paid a call girl
a thousand dollars for a night. Or an hour.
Would it be different in kind or only
tricks and apparatus? I worried that a great
love might make everything else an exile.
It turned out that being together
at twilight in the olive groves of Umbria
did, indeed, measure everything after that.”
Jack Gilbert, The Dance Most of All: Poems
