Description

The Martian Queen was the Titanic of the stars before it was decommissioned, set to drift back and forth between Earth and Mars on the off chance that reclaiming it ever became profitable for the owners. For Saga and her husband Michel the cruise ship represents a massive payday. Hacking and stealing the ship could earn them enough to settle down, have children, and pay for the treatments to save Saga's mother's life. But the Martian Queen is much more than their employer has told them. In the twenty years since it was abandoned, something strange and dangerous has come to reside in the decadent vessel. Saga feels herself being drawn into a spider's web, and must navigate the traps and lures of an awakening intelligence if she wants to go home again.

Review quote

"The Ghost Line is a delicious rush of the future and the past. It sparks a nostalgia for what hasn't yet been. I eagerly await more from Gray and Herbison." -- Lawrence M. Schoen, Coyotl Award winning author of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard"Shiver-inducing, thought-provoking, and decidedly eerie." --Publishers Weekly"Gray and Herbison accomplish much in this novella, crafting a menacing yet alluring atmosphere within an apparently abandoned spacecraft and weaving in an intriguing message about life, loss and the persistence of memory." --RT Book Reviews "The Ghost Line is a delicious rush of the future and the past. It sparks a nostalgia for what hasn't yet been. I eagerly await more from Gray and Herbison." -- Lawrence M. Schoen, Coyotl Award winning author of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard
