For too long, the first two novels of Eric Brown’s Weird Space series (The Devil’s Nebula and Satan’s Reach) have been sitting on my shelf, unread. I better get moving on those — the third one will be coming out in 6 months.
Here’s the cover and synopsis for the third novel in the Weird Space series: Weird Space: The Baba Yaga by Eric Brown and Una McCormack.
The growing threat of the Weird has driven the Expansion to paranoia and oppression. Mandatory testing for infection is introduced, and the colony Braun’s World – following reports of a new portal opening – is purged from orbit, at an unimaginable cost in lives.
Delia Walker, a senior analyst in the Expansions’s intelligence bureau, protests the new policies and is drummed out. Desperate for a sign of hope, she charters the decrepit freighter the Baba Yaga and heads into Satan’s Reach, following rumours of a world where humans and the Weird live peacefully side by side.
Hunted by the Bureau, Walker, her pilot Yershov, and Failt – a Vetch child stowaway, fleeing slavery – will uncover secrets about both the Weird and the Expansion; secrets that could prevent the seemingly inevitable war…
