Unexpected - defies tropes to bring an imaginative story of first contact on an alien world. Fun novella

I've read all of Geoff Nelder's work, found them all superbly written and this is no exception. What a fabulous read, can't believe it was only delivered this morning and I've read it already!
Geoff's world building is exemplary, the character conflict brilliant, and there's a real sense of other worldiness with the Kep. With the senses all covered you find yourself really invested in the tale. Loved 'Papillon', naming the 'butterfly' that really made me smile.
My only complaint is that it ended t

Suppose We is the name of an interstellar exploration ship manned by a crew of four, with a mission to explore a suitable planet for human habitation in the Kepler system. It is also the title of the latest book by author Geoff Nelder.

Unsure what to make of the situation, Poirer decides to wak ...more

The best thing about reading speculative fiction is the creative imagination of someone else, who thinks up things (even) I haven’t.

This is why I enjoy Geoff Nelder’s writing. He and I think very differently. At first, some of his concepts strike me as bizarre -- then they grow o

I loved Nelder's Aria trilogy with its unique amnesia ideas, so when amazon told me about suppose we (what a great name for a ship and book!!) I had to give it a go. Brill. Loved the vegan science officer and felt his angst even though I'm not even a veggie tho maybe shuld be. Glad there are only 4 chief people in the story and that we could follow what they thought and did. That AI is awesome. Like HAL only more crazy. That butterfly! Who else would give a role to a butterfly! gENIUS.
