In Jarrod L Edge’s, Zeta 6, an origin story, the discarded 6-3-9 carbon alloy plated cyborg remembered nothing. It ran, unaware of how it knew which path to take, or how it knew the things it did. The most essential things, those seeming most important were those it didn’t know, such as who it was, where it was, and how it came to be here. The confusion lasted long enough to escape, but with the return of its memories came another harrowing realisation, it wasn’t where it should be, who it should be. But what led to this, and how was it even possible? Only through reliving the past can the truth be uncovered and the future be paved.
In Jarrod L Edge’s, Zeta 6, an origin story, the reader is drawn into the world of science fiction with a bang.

A tale of youthful enthusiasm gone awry, a life filled with promise, destroyed.

Engaging, entertaining, and most importantly fun, this short read will certainly leave you wanting more.
