Collected Stories of Starships and Spacedust
An astronaut alone in the void of deep space. An alien starship capable of destroying all creation. A DNA Detective in search of the genetic code of The Beatles. A terrorist explosion trapped inside a bubble of space/time. A new life-form found in the quantum echoes of the void.
Eccentric Orbits contains seventeen SF stories originally published between 1999 and 2011 and now collected together for the first time. Stories range from the very, very short up to novella length.
