Creatures, An Encounter With Reverse-Clairvoyance
Creatures is what happens when a psychic reader sees not what happened but rather what did not happen? It’s about trying to make sense of strange occurrences when psychic readings only reveal what did not happen. Maybe you can put the pieces together. Or maybe the reverse-clairvoyance reader will help. Enjoy the read.of Creatures by.Rm Harrington.
A military transport search and rescue squad led by reverse-sensory tech Captain Jeffery Lewis encounters telepathic electric eels on planet 152481 Sabria, a land where rain seldom ceases to fall and jungle and swamp merge as one. Equipped with advanced weapons and nearly indestructible armor, backed up by a bit of old-time weaponry and the skill to see things that did not happen, Lewis and team soon find themselves involved in a most confusing situation. Something in the atmosphere scrambles technology. Weapons, tools and armor plummet into a state of random functionality. Suddenly survival depends on the interactions that take place between the team, a single hysterical research survivor, black market traders and intelligent but deadly eels.

Lewis ignored the flashes of nudity. “Rebecca. I need to read into your past? It is critical. Otherwise I would not do it.”
She continued to stare, not blinking and likely not even comprehending this thing that Lewis was asking. But neither did she resist when he kneeled down and placed a bare hand on her left shoulder.
