It’s okay, I’m almost done with the whole fanboy episode. But, if you’re not done, and you’d like to see how I celebrated the release of Top Gun: Maverick, then the following blurbs and links might be of interest.
If not, just hit the brakes, and let this post fly right by.
Yeah, couldn’t resist that one! 😉
I wrote two short stories inspired by Top Gun, but wholly different in a Greenlandic kind of way.
I’m always playing around with new characters and new ideas, so starting with some art, I created Lieutenant Ukaliina Nakinngi, call sign Sled Dog.
She’s a bit of a character, to say the least.
Here are the first two short stories. The first one is free.
A bet is a bet and for Lieutenant Ukaliina “Sled Dog” Nakinngi, even the worst odds are preferable to losing. But the creative and intuitive fighter pilot from Greenland has yet to lose a bet, and doesn’t intend to start anytime soon.
There’s a little more art and description on the page for Broken Arrow.
I had fun writing this one, feverishly writing before racing in to Sønderborg to see the movie, and then finishing it when I got home. I crawled into bed around 4 a.m. just as the birds decided it was time to get up.
When terrorists threaten an adventure cruise ship with a missile from a hacked drone, the passengers’ only hope is a mothballed jump jet and a daredevil pilot with the call sign Sled Dog.
And once again, you’ll find a little more on the Call Sign “Sled Dog” page.
I got a bit worried when I read a review saying there were drones in the new Top Gun film, but fortunately there were none. At least, no more than a mention.
That’s it for now. I’ll leave you alone and move swiftly back to Greenland stories, or “other stuff” as I release it.
I hope you have fun with Ukaliina!
