4 posts | 5 read | 1 to read
IM LOST. IM SCARED. AND THERES SOMETHING HORRIBLE IN HERE. My name is Gary Rendell. Im an astronaut. When they asked me as a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said, astronaut, please! I dreamed astronaut, I worked astronaut, I studied astronaut. I got lucky; when a probe exploring the Oort Cloud found a strange alien rock and an international team of scientists was put together to go and look at it, I made the draw. I got even luckier. When disaster hit and our team was split up, scattered through the endless cold tunnels, I somehow survived. Now Im lost, and alone, and scared, and theres something horrible in here. Lucky me. Lucky, lucky, lucky. A new standalone novella by the Arthur C Clarke Award-winning author of Children of Time.

A surprising blend of Sci-fi, Horror and dark British humor. I would like to thank #Netgalley and Rebellion Publishing for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I LOVED this! Adrian Tchaikovsky writes great novellas, and packs so much in to them. Gary Rendell is separated from his fellow shipmates when they try to start an expedition to explore a planet sized rock near Pluto. But it‘s a lot more than just a rock. It‘s a great story of a man losing his grip on reality - the descent into insanity. And there‘s a bit of a play on words with regards to his name - which becomes clear near the end!

A great short story but I think I would have preferred it if it was a little longer, so the -see spoiler in the comment-. Though I have 7 of the Shadows of the Apt books on my shelf, this is the first Tchaikovsky book I read. I really should start that intimidating series...

tessavi so the main character going insane happened a bit more gradually. 5mo
