XINNERS by WAYNE SIMMONS
When Rev takes on the Helo job, it seems like a pretty straightforward slam. Grab some no-mark, gangster kid at the local strip joint. Pop him, scalp him and go.
But a run-in with some Stokians followed by a bad hyperjump leaves Rev and his crew floating around uncharted space. Their ship is damaged and leaking fuel. Their only hope lies with a seemingly deserted mining vessel, parked by a mysterious looking rock.
But what happened to its crew? And what’s with all those smaller ships floating around it?
And… are those dead bodies?
XINNERS is an indulgently pulp sci-fi adventure delivered 60s noir style. It’s Dawn of the Dead meets Battle Beyond the Stars, Romero meets Corman.
It’s ZOMBIES IN SPACE, baby.
‘A stunning read, but not for the faint hearted.’ (The Guardian on PLASTIC JESUS)
‘Simmons steps out of his blood-splattered comfort zone and makes an indelible mark on the sci-fi genre.’ (Starburst Magazine on PLASTIC JESUS)
