A Terrifying fight for survival when your greatest foe knows you better than you know yourself.
In the 22nd century a girl wakes on a space transporter en route to Alpha Centauri. Other than 8000 hibernating colonists she is alone; the crew have disappeared yet she cannot shake the feeling that a malevolent presence watches her every move.
Quickly she wakes several of the other sleeping colonists and they set about regaining control of the ship unaware that their every move and action are being guided like pieces on a chess board.
They check the ships log to find the truth. For about 35 years the original crew have lived and worked together in relative harmony; then, over a short period of time half of them turned into blood thirsty monsters (who the rest of the crew referred to as the Terrors); killing anyone they come across that isn’t like them. However some elements of the log indicate that their actions aren’t entirely random and sometimes appear to be guided by a different mind.
Other than a single handgun they are unarmed with the Armoury over half a mile away along dark isolated corridors. The immense size of the Emain Ablach works against any search expedition; with long passageways only lit by movement sensors; flanked on either side by innumerable open doorways that could harbour any danger.
The evil continues to manifest itself, even from within their own numbers who equally start to develop disturbing symptoms, as they start to struggle in a desperate fight for survival. Evidently they need to get to a new home world as soon as possible, before more start to turn, but engineering is at the far end of the ship; over two miles from the bridge Can they discover the truth before time runs out?
“The deadliest terror sits by me at all hours of the day and night” – Robert Louis Stevenson
Notes from the Author
Years of working in ground breaking technologies; including exploration and SETI (the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence) provided an excellent pedigree to formulate a grizzly adventure based in the future but based on science and technology that, for the most part, is around today.
As a matter of note 90% of the science employed on the Emain Ablach is actually around today in one form or another; although reliability and size has been extensively improved.
The World Order Space Ship Emain Ablach is an immense transporter carrying colonist to a new world. It is over 2.5 miles in length with thousands of rooms ranging from individual dormitories, living quarters, science and livestock IVF studios to the vast botanical hydro-dome and engineering dwarfed by the immense fusion ramjet propulsion unit.
Most of the passengers are women with their choice based on practical logistics (requiring on average 25% less nutrition compare to their male equivalent) with supplies scheduled to last upwards of 100 years. The Emain Ablach has storage for over 100,000 frozen embryos for implantation following arrival at a suitable planet.
Totally unproven technologies such as warp drive and ship wide deflector shielding have been avoided in the drive for reality.
Finally the malaise that befalls the crew is actually around today in two separate conditions. Rarely do they manifest themselves together and equally rarely in such extreme cases except if enhance by other external forces such as heavy narcotic dependency etc.
Described as a combination of the technical threat of Alex Garland's "28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later" and the atmospheric suspense of the "Alien" series; this is a book not to be missed.

Congratulations are still in order. Only months ago, our population reached the much-awaited ascension back into the billions. Oh, the planned revelry for the birth of the child who brought us out of the hundred-millions place. Firework shows across the world filled the night’s sky as the nine digits in the ticker scoreboard rolled over and brought us past the third comma.
The reason behind the theatrics isn’t a secret. Not even a century ago, our species faced a near-extinction event. The virus we all know as The Plague. Such a generic moniker, meant as a way means to soften the memory, only emphasizes the devastation. In a short span of eight months, society had withered away. The survivors amounted to at most a couple hundred million.
Our ancestors faced such a tragedy. But what if I told you that everything we know of The Plague isn’t true? I’m not questioning the horrific event that occurred. What I am saying is that there is more to the catastrophe than a virus. An illness did ravage the planet. Let’s just say those who died didn’t remain dead for long.
