OUT THERE, a mystery in a metal donut.

The L5 Project is a space colony built in the shape of a torus. Eight thousand committed “L5ers” are working to save a piece of humanity while the home planet is slowly crumbling about the ears of oligarchs, bureaucrats and the rest of us.

But then there is the matter of Juergen’s body, lying in L5’s orchard, surrounded by “friggen puddles of pure friggen water”.

To find out what happened, the keeper of L5’s ports, known as the Gates To Hades, must travel down to Earth. Charon meets Juergen’s family, and thugs in the Moscow airport where he is saved by a Ukrainian oceanography named Darinka.

This novel will be available later in the year. If you wish to pre-order a signed copy for the low introductory price of $24, please do so here:
