Autonomy by Wijbren van Tuinen


In the year 3000 humans are colonising the galaxy. They are taking the vast frontier of space and are segmenting it, culturing it and constricting it. Autonomy Jones, mercenary and bounty hunter, refuses to accept this. Together with Tommy, her robotic partner, she drifts through space from planet to planet and station to station, accepting any job that will keep her ship flying.

Autonomy is a monthly updated serial with mostly done-in-one short story blasts of up to 3000 words.

Note: Autonomy is unfinished, and will likely remain so.  It contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

The situation was one that you see everywhere: a flat ‘goodie’ facing off a flat ‘baddie’. Not very stimulating.

However, I decided to give Autonomy a fair chance, and I’m glad I did.

A Jones for Autonomy

By Palladian, author of Super

Oct 22, 2012: I knew I was going to like the space western Autonomy due to the sheer amount of firepower and destruction in the first few pages, but there were a number of other things that also kept me clicking on ‘next’ again and again.

The story follows Autonomy Jones, mercenary/bounty hunter and her robot partner, Tommy, as they tear up the galaxy in search of their next target in order to keep themselves running and their ship, the C-Beam Queen, flying. It [more . . .]
