Foreword by Philip Harbottle

Afterword by David Spencer


From the void of interstellar space

A mysterious object is on a collision course with Alpha.

Too ornate to be just a wandering rock,

Is it a ship, a living artifact, a tomb?

Contained within it are both an unstoppable horror

That threatens to destroy Alpha,

And alien seeds that give rise to a new threat:

A thing of beauty, at once graceful and insidious,

That preys on the blood of those in its thrall,

And threatens the lives everyone on Alpha.

This classic novel has been revised for continuity and has now taken its place within the Powysverse!

Forthcoming November 2020
