A ship full of worlds...
For John Bandicut, Earth is but a memory.
Miraculously alive, Bandicut is stranded somewhere on the fringes of the galaxy, docked at a structure of unimaginable size. Exploring the world within, he finds that he and countless other beings have been brought to this vast "shipworld," which contains countless alien biospheres joined both physically and by a web of n-dimensional energy. But he and his new friends Ik and Li-Jared cannot enjoy the marvels of Shipworld. Manipulated by powers beyond their knowledge, they are soon caught in a cascade of unseen forces, like the strange attractors of chaos theory, driven toward some greater purpose.
Within Shipworld lurks a malign entity known as the "boojum," which is corrupting critical intelligence systems. Bandicut is inexorably drawn into battle with this force, which threatens to destroy them along with the rest of Shipworld.
For Bandicut, a long journey into the unknown has begun.
