Originally published: 2019
Haimey Dz and her partner Connla Kurucz are salvage operators. Theirs is a perilous and marginal existence. They have barely enough chance of striking it fantastically big, just enough however, to keep them coming back for more. They pilot their tiny ship into the scars left by unsuccessful White Transitions, searching for the relics of lost human and alien vessels. A wild adventure across an imagined cosmos where every FTL journey creates its own mini-universe. A universe that is just waking up to the knowledge that a long-dead, hugely powerful alien species may still be around. Knowledge that could tip the perilous peace mankind has found into war.
