About the Book:
An intense hard SF novella from Simon Morden (B.Sc. Hons., Sheffield, Ph.D, Newcastle), a bona fide rocket scientist with degrees in geology and planetary geophysics who also writes science fiction. Author of a dozen novels and collections, Simon won the 2012 Philip K. Dick Award. At The Speed of Light is one of his finest works to date.
A tense drama set in the depths of space. Aboard a ship that has travelled beyond the reach of human knowledge, Corbyn discovers he may not be as alone as he ought to be.
Publisher Ian Whates says:
I was completely blown away the first time I read this; deep space SF written by a scientist, what’s not to love? The story reminded me in parts of the claustrophobic intensity of Frank Herbert’s Destination: Void or even Sir Arthur’s 2001.
