Humankind’s thirst for exploration and resources has led us to distant planetary systems eons older than our own. Now, we’ve ventured into deep space and discovered a planet humans were never meant to find. When alien DNA from the long-dead planet is regenerated on one of our medical frigates, an ancient evil is awakened and the descent into madness begins.
A cosmic horror inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
“Help us. We’ve gone too far…”
When the military’s largest space fleet disappears with a single terrifying transmission, the best and brightest are recruited to find out what happened.
Beka Grales, a young quantum entanglement expert whose only sister was stationed on the missing fleet, struggles along with her team to decipher their only clues: the encrypted memories of the lost soldiers.
Meanwhile across the galaxy, two young twin girls awaken from visions of ghastly souls pleading for help. Night after night the girls are drawn deeper into their dreams as they communicate with these lost beings. As their mother, Cam Dowager, realizes the lost souls are connected to the missing fleet, she works frantically to hide the twins and their knowledge from the increasingly desperate military.
Despite the military’s sole focus on recovering their ships, Beka and Cam begin to realize the horrifying truth…that the Fleet, and the creature that has taken control of it, must never be found again.

Stephen Case gets paid for teaching people about space, which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. He also occasionally gets paid for writing stories about space (and other things), which have appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Daily Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Shimmer, and elsewhere. His novel, First Fleet, is a science fiction horror epic (think H. P. Lovecraft meets Battlestar Galactica) published by Retrofit Publishing and available on Amazon. Stephen holds a PhD in the history and philosophy of science and will talk for inordinate amounts of time about nineteenth-century British astronomy. He lives with his wife, four children, and two illegal backyard chickens in an undisclosed suburb of Chicago. Follow him on Twitter @BoldSaintCroix or at www.stephenrcase.wordpress.com.
