TERMINUS BY PAUL MELHUISH
Sii Terminus is a space-gannta, a loser crewing deep-space freighters whose best friend is a bottle of snakki. Until one day he is chosen to command an unusual mission to ferry a diplomat to the dead world of Thanatos One. Except the planet is not as dead as it seems, and Terminus has not been chosen by accident.
Hammer Horror meets Aliens in this fast-paced tale of horror, love, and betrayal, where the fate of all humanity rests on the actions of an anti-hero with a hangover.
Terminus is the first full-length novel in the Skyfire Saga.
This is a rip roaring science fiction horror page turner. Melhuish, keeps the action flowing in this punchy novel, filled with some great and well thought out monsters, that at times reminds me of Harry Harrison’s Deathworld.
