The intriguing story of how a bold but tiny group of beleaguered humanity—financed by a rogue billionaire—undertake the top-secret colonization of a nearby star system
In this collection of sci-fi stories, heralded writer Carter Scholz explores a variety of sociopolitical themes. In the novella Gypsy, a few visionary scientists, chosen and nurtured by an eccentric billionaire undertake humankind's most expansive adventure—a generations-long voyage to a distant planet. The story "The Nine Billion Names of God" uses a classic sci-fi text to deconstruct literary deconstruction itself, with hilarious results. "Imprecations" is an unforgiving examination of the primary lies in popular culture. An interview with the author, in which Scholz reveals his sources, frustrations, forbidden delights, and demonic designs, is also included.
