Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

Hope explains things to Nolan, but he barely hears her. The darkest, ancient fear swallows him: the fear of death. Imminent, painful death. Being raised in an immortal society where everyone is promised eternal life and youth made that fear even worse.

Colonization of another planet with an all-female team and thousands of embryos sorted by gender is not my idea. I read it somewhere but cannot find the link now.

Human colony on Mars was mentioned before, briefly, by Ash (see Page_261). And it's the first, but not the last time when we hear about "Mars Awakened".


I suppose the sensible thing for him to do would be to simply tell her what's going on. Surely she can't do anything for him if she doesn't even know. At the very least, if she can't heal him, she might have a means to ease the pain. He does seem to have some dread about the manner of his death, not just the death itself--which is also a primal fear. Even for those who accept death comes to all, few are able to face their last hours being slow and agonizing unflinchingly.

Indeed. I'd choose painless death myself. But even to me, an ordinary human that lives in a world where immortality is not an option, it would be difficult to trust a stranger, especially a stranger belonging to a very different faction (Mars Awakened was an enemy of Atlantis).
