Our ‘Book of the Week’ is a startling debut that fans of Harry Harrison, E.E ‘Doc’ Smith and Nathan Lowell will love.
THE SILVER SHIPS
By: S.H Jucha
An explorer-tug captain, Alex Racine detects a damaged alien craft drifting into the system. Recognizing a once in a lifetime opportunity to make first contact, Alex pulls off a daring maneuver to latch on to the derelict.
Alex discovers the ship was attacked by an unknown craft, the first of its kind ever encountered. The mysterious silver ship’s attack was both instant and deadly.
What enfolds is a story of the descendants of two Earth colony ships, with very different histories, meeting 700 years after their founding and uniting to defend humanity from the silver ships.
If you ever read any really bad Space Opera, keep a copy of the ‘The Silver Ships’ nearby to reaffirm your faith that this kind of Science Fiction can be done brilliantly.
Fans of Nathan Lowell and Harry Harrison will love it.
