Eric Brown's recent novel Helix published by Solaris has received some deservedly fantastic reviews and this fine novella due shortly from PS Publishing is an equally impressive display of Brown's talents.
"David Conway leaves Earth and settles on the backwater planet of Chalcedony, Delta Pavonis IV, in search of a quiet life away from the haunting reminders of his past. Living aboard a derelict spaceship in the quiet coastal community of Magenta Bay, he meets artist Matt Sommers, beachcomber Maddie Chamberlain and ex-starship pilot Hawksworth, and things seem about as perfect as he could hope... until he discovers that his ship is haunted by an alien spectre.
What follows will change Conway and his friends - and the future of humankind's destiny in space - for ever."
Starship Summer is a limited edition that will be published in two states. 500 PPC hardcover copies will be signed by Brown, along with 300 trade hard covers, signed both by Brown and by Peter F. Hamilton, who wrote the introduction. Recommended.
