All Things Strange and Dangerous

Desmond, the poet son of notorious explorer and rumored space pirate Rumlan Clews, inherits a starship that promises adventure across the unexplored reaches of the Milky Way. Defying his avaricious aunt and a calculating fiancée intent on selling his birthright, he takes a leap of faith, propelled by his robotic lawyer’s advice, to follow his late father’s legacy and launch himself into the great unknown.

Desmond’s lyrical life tangles with the unlikeliest of companions: a local crime lord with an agenda, a sentient atomic bomb with a penchant for poetry, a tiny warrior with the bravery of a giant, and a lonely farm girl who had no idea her dreams could come true.

Seeds from Ancient Earth

At the end of the world, the desperate remnants of humanity send out hundreds of robotic self-replicating probes that carry with them the nano-technology to recreate human life, as well as a vast sampling of Earth’s flora and fauna.

Katherina is the beta test human for the project, a child created by machines.

Even after the world ends, she’s reborn again and again on planets across the galaxy.

Follow her quest for adventure across light years and millennia. It’s a search for what it means to be human and how far humanity can evolve and still be considered humankind.
