The Void Captain's tale
Spinrad, Norman.
Adult Fiction SPINRAD

Comments  Summary

Summary: In the Second Starfaring Age, humans travel the universe via a technology they barely understand, propelled by a mysterious space drive linked to a living woman, the Void Pilot.Pilots live only for the timeless moments of Transition, when their ships cross the emptinesses of space in an instant. Now Void Pilot Dominique Alia Wu has begun to catch a glimpse of something more, something transcendent in that eternal moment . . . and she needs the cooperation of her Captain to achieve it. Even at risk to the survival of the Ship.Norman Spinrad has been one of SF's most adventurous writers since the 1960s. His epic of the Second Starfaring Age, comprised of The Void Captain's Tale and the later novel Child of Fortune (forthcoming from Orb), forms a single epic praised by the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction as "an eroticized vision of the Galaxy . . . an elated Wanderjahr among the sparkling worlds".
