A Surprisingly Active Ghost

By:David Layton, Los Angeles, United States
Date:Monday 8 February 2021
Rating:   7

Sara Kingdom is a ghost in a house on a planet in her own far future. She must justify her existence by telling stories to a representative of this planet who will put the case to the Elders for her continued existence. She tells him the story of when she "died" but was returned alive on a watery asteroid occupied by distraught miners. This is a sequel to "Home Truths." Sara is established as a "ghost" of a kind, but a fully interactive and very chatty one. Jean Marsh and Niall MacGregor trade roles as narrator, and this one is more like a conversation than other Companion Chronicles, which come across primarily as monologues.
