In addition to Eric Brown's novel Engineman, this paperback original from Solaris also contains nine stories set in the Engineman universe, including the Interzone award winning 'The Time-Lapsed Man'. Great SF and great value from one the most under-rated authors in the British genre scene.
"Once they pushed bigships through the cobalt glory of the Nada-Continuum. But faster than light isn't fast enough anymore. The interfaces of the Keilor-Vincicoff Organisation bring planets light years distant a simple step away. Then a man with half a face offers ex-engineman Ralph Mirren the chance to escape his ruined life and push a ship to an undisclosed destination. The Nada-Continuum holds the key to Ralph's future. What he cannot anticipate is its universal importance – nor the mystery awaiting him on the distant colony world."
