Yesterday I played a brief excerpt from the audio book of Hell Ship, featuring Sharrock, one of the book’s three narrators.
Today, meet Jak. Jak is an alien from a universe not our own, and belongs to a society which values beauty and grace and the art of trading. For various reasons he has abandoned his position in society to become the lowly Master of an Explorer craft, whose mission is to travel the stars, and there to seek out new civilisations, and get the better of them in sly negotiations.
Thanks to those kind people at Recorded Books, who gave me excerpts from their forthcoming audio book, here’s a mission taken from the Explorer’s log. The narrator is Timothy Reynolds.
