Product Description

Product Description

Saved from the imminent demise of their dying solar system, the survivors drift in space aboard a titanic alien vessel. Life is everything it was on Earth and the other colonised planets: there is happiness, despair, love and hate, all in equal measure. This is no utopia and no one aboard expected that it was going to be easy, but a growing number of its weary inhabitants are beginning to suspect that the motives of their alien ‘rescuers’ are not as pure as they originally seemed.

More About the Author

Inserted into human society in a suburb of Manchester (1979) I originally moved south on the onset of my third cycle of existence, nominally to read Classics at Oxford University, but really to find out more about the diversity of Terran language and inflection.

Now, in my fourth incarnation and on the surface a teacher of Latin and Ancient Greek in an affluent suburb of London, I find myself unable to hide any longer my affection for your society's fringe literature (scifi, horror and hermeneutic fiction) and have begun exposing my own exploratory versions in this online forest to be chanced upon, consumed and assessed.

When I am not writing, sending back oneiric updates to my keenly expectant extra-terrestrial bosses, or implanting viral suggestions in the mass populace, I am inevitably thinking about these things.

My other great love is music; I can often be found listening to most things from jazz and prog rock to doom and black metal (all of which more often than not provide the soundtrack for my writing compulsion).

This is either a true account of who I am or a load of mindless obfuscation or perhaps even both.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horror where? 14 May 2012
By Robert Casey - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disgusting or even horrid on occasion but hardly a scare. Premise had some promise but not executed well enough, plot hardly hidden and writing leaves a lot to be desired at times. Felt somewhat grimy after reading it.
