Endless Blue

Blast Away to Adventure!

The Very Large Object That ATE the Other Very Large Objects!

The Sargasso. Space ships go in, and they don't come back. But as the all-destroying Nefrim drive humanity from the stars, everything depends on one captain's desperate gambit: to dial his stardrive to zero—to "fall off the map"—and plunge into the ocean-covered pocket universe that is the Sargasso. Within is a secret that can change a galaxy. And, though escape is a trick generations of trapped starfarers have tried and failed to master—now the fate of two universes depends on Mikail Volkov being the first to GET OUT!

The dawn of a new hard-hitting space adventure by the winner of the 2003 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer!

So much creativity in one place, it's amazing it doesn't collapse down into a black hole.
