The Black Heart of the Station
by Jay Allan Storey
The Station is a city buried deep beneath the surface of a frozen, lifeless earth, its origins lost in the mists of time. Josh Driscoll’s frequent rule-breaking exploits are focused on a single question – how did we get here?
But Josh goes too far when he steals a space-suit and escapes to the surface to explore.
As punishment, the governing Council conscripts him to Saint Carmine’s, the Station’s resident monastery. At first desperate to escape, Josh finds himself drawn into the monastery’s ancient texts.
Deciphering a centuries-old scripture, Josh learns that a computer complex sealed off after an ancient asteroid strike may be all that can save the Station from annihilation. When the deranged head of the Council vows to demolish the complex, Josh leads a desperate battle to stop him.
But can Josh and his tiny band of followers prevail in time to save them all?
