Patrimony is billed as the penultimate book in Flinx's 35 year long saga. Flinx Transcendent, which will conclude the series, is scheduled for April of 2009. In the meantime, we have Flinx off on yet another in a long line of side excursions which seem to exist solely for the purpose of keeping him from doing the one task he's suppose to be doing. But, since that task is to find a ancient weapons platform that is so powerful that it might just be capable of stopping an ancient evil so powerful that it can destroy an entire galaxy. One can certainly understand why Flinx might be so inclined to put off the inevitable for just a little while longer. From official release/information:
From publicity material: Patrimony, the thirteenth book in the series, is the penultimate novel in the adventures of this beloved interstellar duo, a book that will answer a burning question that readers have been wondering about for decades: Who is Flinx's father?
