Eric Brown, the critically acclaimed author of The Virex Trilogy, The Fall of Tartarus and numerous short stories, has penned an exciting new novel for Solaris. Helix is a grandiose space opera, a story of exploration, alien contact and desperation. It follows the plight of a group of humans who crash land on a desolate alien planet. Daylight brings the discovery that the planet is merely one of thousands arranged in a vast spiral wound around a central sun. The group set off to discover a more habitable Earth-like world, encountering bizarre alien races on the way. But they must also find a means to stay alive.
