Some talented readers of the Earth Girl trilogy have created artwork or music inspired by Jarra’s story. I do all the writing myself of course, but I decided to have a fun page specifically for things other than writing, to feature some of these pieces that particularly impressed me.
Janet Edwards reading from EARTH GIRL. I thought I should contribute something to this myself. Since I’ve limited talent as a musician and my paintings are worse, I’m reading aloud from Earth Girl. I haven’t worked out how to edit recordings yet, so you can look out for the fluffed lines, missing words, and see if you can spot the point when a spider decided to walk across my arm!

Earth Girl Rising. Music inspired by Jarra. The sadness and loneliness of being trapped on earth (the intro & guitar & cello section), and her inner strength throughout the whole trilogy (the solid and steady drum track). By James Walton.

This music is totally amazing! is it available anywhere?
It is amazing. If you click the link you get his SoundCloud page with it, but I’m not sure if he’s active there any longer.
Thank you! He is still on SoundCloud!
did you have a Sector map/graph on this page? I saw it once, but now I can’t find it and I think I’ve looked everywhere. where is it? please!
The Earth 2788 short stories were on this website for a while before I published them as a collection. I think you must mean the illustration of the sectors I used with them. That vanished when I took the short stories down, but I’ve now reposted it here for anyone that’s interested.
Yes! this is the one! Is Zeta right next to Epsilon? it has to be next to Beta too. Would Sigma be on the other side of Kappa? Thanks for reposting it!

Yes, that positioning makes sense. This is a two dimensional diagram representing the three dimensional holo of the three concentric spheres of humanity so it has to be simplistic. The way the sectors border each other is actually much more complicated, like cutting chunks out of a solid ball.
Where is Zeta Sector? It would be good to know where Thetis, Fortuna and the world next door to that, which might be the homeworld of the Chimera are all located.
Hi Ian. Zeta is one of the frontier sectors and (as mentioned in Earth Girl) is right next to Beta sector. Thetis Nova is, or was, in Beta sector.
