Dave Freer, Eric Flint – Slow Train to Arcturus

Make tracks to the stars!

Oh ye civilized of Earth: Send forth your outcasts, your primitive throwbacks, your religious fundamentalists, your sexual separatists – and heck, you can even toss in your totalitarian crackpots in the bargain. Pack them all in sealed habitats, rocket them into space, and pronounce good riddance to those lunatics, oddballs, and losers!

But if you happen to be an alien explorer stranded on that ship and looking to find a way home, well then, your one chance lies in seeking out the true iconoclasts in a sea of nutcase societies – for verily, it is only the absolutely original and terminally weird who shall inherit the stars!

Contains mature themes.

mob involved

I think, even better than the Expanse. great character development, tight plotting, believable science. this is one to re-read over and over again. I would particularly recommend for those who don’t enjoy reading about brutal violence or people being horrible (since it avoids being graphic or angsty) but know very well that those things happen and don’t want them sugarcoated (since they do happen in this story).
