Forgotten Flight, by Jon Olson, is a great horror/science fiction short story! For those of you wanting a realistic story in this fantastic genre mix, this is the tale for you.

I recommend it highly!

 Book description:

 “The clock is running, so off we go!”

On December 21, 1961, Commander Malcom Caulfield blasted off in his capsule, Majestic, and became the first American to orbit the Earth.

“I am alone up here, right?”

Just one orbit into a planned five, strange things began to happen and it quickly became apparent that something wasn’t quite right with the mission.

Based upon recently discovered official NASA ground-to-ship audio reels, this fictional transcription tells the tale of Commander Caulfield’s Forgotten Flight…

As a fellow space geek, I was totally entranced by the way Olson crafted this story. Written as a lost transcript between mission control and an early orbital capsule, I couldn't help but devour this in one bite. The tension builds quickly with an ending that leaves me wanting more! A must read for horror and sci-fi fans!
