The Death and Life of Schneider WrackNate Crowley
science fiction, horror, collection
An omnibus edition of The Sea Hates a Coward and Grand Amazon.
Schneider Wrack was never a dissident. He doesn’t think. But he’s been convicted as a dissident, and in the ancient city of Lipos-Tholos, at the heart of the star-spanning Lemniscatus, the sentence for sedition is death. Death, and then reanimation, shipped out to vast whaling ships on the terrible world of Ocean, to work until you fall apart – or something gets you. And now Schneider has woken up, trapped in rotting limbs and a fading brain, arm-deep in the fat and stinking meat of a colossus, and he’s not happy. From its unsteady start in the stench and brine of Ocean to its perilous quest through the jungle world of Grand Amazon, Schneider’s revolution will never be particularly fun or easy, but sometimes a zombie’s gotta do what a zombie’s gotta do.
