Product description

Review

despite the gentle pacing I was captivated. Herein lies the book's strength. I wanted to know the secrets behind the glamorous movie star's arrival, the taciturn natives and the vision-inducing drug that they use. Have any of the characters really been given a glimpse of the future? Who is trying to manipulate whom? I was drawn inexorably from page to page to find out. The plot flows steadily, adding background information and new twists almost unnoticed until you suddenly realise the depth of the situation that has developed. It's one of the most emotionally involving stories I've read in a long time and left me well satisfied.

From the Publisher

In Starship Fall, Eric Brown has crafted a powerful, moving novella about love, friendship, and the consequences of learning one's destiny. Traditional SF in style, yet wholly original in concept.

David Conway leads a quiet life in picturesque Magenta Bay on the colony world of Chalcedony. Nothing much has happened for five years, but all that is about to change. First he meets the mysterious holo star Carlotta Chakravorti-Luna, who regrets the lost loves of her past and dreams of learning what the future might hold. Then Conway's alien friend Kee heads inland to take part in an Ashentay ritual with potentially fatal consequences. What follows is a convoluted and poignant tragedy which entangles Conway and his friends.
