Out mid-September from Solaris E-Books is the novella Binary. The second novella in the duology, System, will follow early next year. Together they will form the real, solid, paperback novel Binary System, out from Solaris later year. They’re both available for pre-order now.
On what should have been a routine mission to the star system of 61 Cygni A, Delia Kemp finds herself shunted over ten thousand light years through space into an uncharted sector of the galactic arm. The only survivor of a catastrophic starship blow-out, Delia manages to land her life-raft on the inhospitable, ice-bound world of Valinda, populated by a race of hostile aliens, the Skelt. What follows is a break-neck adventure as Delia escapes from the Skelt and travels south through a phantasmagorical landscape as the long winter comes to an end and the short, blistering summer approaches. The Skelt will stop at nothing to obtain Delia’s technical knowledge – but what Delia wants is impossible: to leave Valinda and return to Earth.
Binary is a thrilling action-adventure novel in the spirit of Jack Vance’s Planet of Adventure series.
