My new novelette is out, “First Galactic Table Tennis Championships”! It comes in both print and kindle formats.
https://www.amazon.com/First-Galactic-T ... B0BCD4ZLKH

It’s about 10,000 words, about 40 pages double spaced. It takes place about 100 years from now – and the title pretty much tells you what it’s about! (Of special interest to some in this forum - the main star, the Chinese World Women's Champion, uses long pips on one side, inverted on the other, and continually flips, blocking and looping from both sides.) Here’s the back cover description:

Li Yi is a member of the Chinese National Table Tennis Team and the best woman in the world. She has trained long hours since she was a child. But now she faces her biggest challenge – aliens! Table tennis has spread to the galaxy and alien players now dominate the sport. The best are the giraffe-like Ith, with their dominating champion Egrayu.

But Earth isn't part of it, not since the cowboy Americans colonized a moon in the Ith home system, which led to a blockade of Earth. The Chinese hope to reopen trade with the galaxy by using "Ping-Pong Diplomacy" – by running the first Galactic Table Tennis Championships in Beijing. Li, her teammates, and the American champion Danny See – a literal cowboy – play aliens of all shapes and sizes, including the seemingly unbeatable Egrayu, as they battle for the biggest cash prize in table tennis history. But Li is drawn into a corrupt conspiracy that will shake the very foundations of honor and sportsmanship. Plus, there's that problem with the Chinese dumplings…
