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
A 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.
