A prolific writer for film, television, and theater, Philip Palmer here delivers a science-fiction thriller that rockets along from blistering start to fiery conclusion.
A juggernaut striking fear into the hearts of planets that fall within its path, the Hell Ship mercilessly slaughters innocents as it travels through space, amassing slaves. But one slave, Sharrock, refuses to accept his shackles—and his cause is soon to be boosted by Jak, who’s following the ship and determined to destroy it for its crimes.

A Very different kind of story!
What a Strange and Wonderful Trip!
I didn't read the print version, though I suspect I may have lost interest as it doesn't really follow the usual storytelling conventions. But, that's okay!
The absolutely insane action, strange twists and turns and unusual characters. Not a human in sight! I love scifi, but I don't like it when authors take the easy way out by having all of the aliens behave and resemble humans. This is written fiction, you can have anything, any shape, any voice, smell, customs, morals, ethics, religions...! Mr. Palmer didn't take the easy way out, not by a long shot. He doesn't let you forget for one minute that these are a varied group of aliens, many so completely different from humanity that we would scarcely recognize them if we had encountered them. Luckily we get to spend a lot of time in their heads.
I think that if this book were read entirely by one voice actor it would have been dull. With the addition of two others, it really kept my attention.
Over fourteen hours of strangeness, wonders, cultures, action and aliens!
The ideas in this book are the biggest, craziest, mind blowingest, ideas I've read in a book. One crazy thing after another!
