The Dance of the Dead
Illegally smuggled aboard a spaceship, hungover to the nth degree, all Benny Summerfield wants is to curl up in a ball and die. And it looks like she’s going to get her chance.
When disaster strikes the ship – human error, or deliberate sabotage? – Benny barely survives. Banding together with a party of Ice Warriors and a laconic steward, a hazardous, arduous race is on to find a way out of the wreck before it breaks up all together.
But are her fellow escapees all they seem? Benny finds that’s hard to tell when your own mind’s being hijacked by the memories and emotions of a dead alien – while a Martian Grand Marshall becomes your better half…
