Hi - my space opera Long Paradise is now available in audiobook format. If you have any questions, please let me know. All the best, James Murdo (website) An ancient, unsolved mystery. Everyone wants to survive. Everyone wants answers. The Outer Layer is an enigma to its residents. Representatives from countless races and civilizations wander the many territories hoping to unlock the secrets and progress further into its depths. An anomaly has been detected in space by an artefact from an extinct civilization. Ciqalo, a machine intelligence from the Wanderer civilization, is tasked with investigating and weaponizing the anomaly for a galactic war. Tolren, playmate to the heirs of a powerful Roranian family, becomes a hunted fugitive. He finds himself thrust into a dangerous adventure aboard a structure in space that defies understanding. What’s more, he’s not alone. Seremend, a fellow Roranian, has also been ensnared. Why have they all been chosen? A stand-alone novel from the Wanderer Universe. Cerebral sci-fi with an emphasis on the "sci". If you enjoy hard sci-fi, complex space opera, and authors such as Iain M. Banks, Alastair Reynolds, and Dan Simmons, then this is for you.
