Free ebook: Sliding Void by Stephen Hunt

Sliding Void by Stephen Hunt is currently free on Amazon (Amazon US, Amazon ES):
Captain Lana Fiveworlds has a hell of a lot of problems.

She's sliding void in an ageing seven-hundred-year-old space ship, scrabbling around the edges of civilised space trying to find a cargo lucrative enough to pay her bills without proving so risky that it'll kill her. She's got an alien religious freak for a navigator, an untrustworthy android for a first mate, a disgraced lizard for a trade negotiator and a deserter from the fleet acting as her chief engineer.

And that was well before an ex-crewman turns up wanting Lana to rescue a barbarian prince from a long-failed colony world.

Unfortunately for Lana, the problems she doesn't know about are even more dangerous. In fact, they just might be enough to destroy Lana's rickety but much-loved vessel, the Gravity Rose, and jettison her and her crew into the void without a spacesuit.

But there's one thing you can never tell an independent space trader. That's the odds...

  1. ¿Que sabes de Stephen Hunt? Me suena bastante pero no lo ubico. Y sí, I know, google is my friend... pero prefiero preguntarte ;-)

  2. Así de memoria, y sin haber leído nada suyo, a Stephen Hunt lo conozco por ser autor de varias novelas de steampunk (¿The Court of Air, podría ser?). Alguna vez las he estado mirando, pero nunca me he decido. Este ebook es una novela corta, así que puede ser un buen punto para iniciarse con el autor.
