The Age of Scorpio – Gavin Smith

theageofscorpioGavin Smith’s work has garnered some astounding and well deserved praise and he is fast becoming a big name in Sci-Fi. His stand-alone novel, The Age of Scorpio, continues to prove just how imaginative and thrilling a writer he is in this fast-paced epic novel.

Of all the captains based out of Arclight only Eldon Sloper was desperate enough to agree to a salvage job in Red Space. And now he and his crew are living to regret his desperation.

In Red Space the rules are different. Some things work, others don’t. Best to stick close to the Church beacons. Don’t get lost.

Because there’s something wrong about Red Space. Something beyond rational. Something vampyric . . .

Long after The Loss mankind is different. We touch the world via neunonics. We are machines, we are animals, we are hybrids. But some things never change. A Killer is paid to kill, a Thief will steal countless lives. A Clone will find insanity, an Innocent a new horror. The Church knows we have kept our sins.
