One thousand years after the Earth’s destruction, humanity teeters on the brink of extinction.
The Arkship Ulysses, once part of a great armada which fled the dying Earth, is now one of the only ship’s left. It is a battered shell of the once-great ship it was, an aging hulk cast adrift in the darkness of space. Its people are starving, its crew under-trained and its hated underclass, fed up with the status quo, is preparing itself for war…
This is a perilous time for humanity, a time in which even the smallest mistake could end the human race forever. A time in which the courage of one woman just might be enough to save it.
The Arkship Ulysses is a 150,000 word novel by R J Burgess. It is an epic fantasy in space in the tradition of Frank Herbert’s Dune or George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire set during the final days of humanity’s once glorious reign.
