“‘Conglommora’ is a believable, concrete, place. Those corridors really stick with me—even a fantastic, deep space colony still requires its monotonous, work-a-day infrastructures. The story really reins in the sci-fi fantasy of it all back to approachable, human terms. Wonderful scenes of how gob-smacked the landing parties are outside of Conglommora, and having all of this story filtered through the wonderfully reluctant “hero” of Charlie. Lots of wit here too, with themes of family, friendship, isolation and connection, religion, science—all woven into the book’s mystery/adventure. I loved it!” — Gerry Dawson, artist and musician
