The Devil's Nebula (Weird Space #1)
By Eric Brown
Abaddon Books, $7.99, 352pp
Release Date: May 29, 2012

Back cover: “Starship Captain Ed Carew and his crew of two - ex-marine Lania Takiomar and ex-convict Gord Neffard - lead a carefree life of smuggling, gun-running and other illicit pursuits in a far future ruled by the fascistic Expansion Authority. But when an Expansion judiciary ship captures Carew and his crew leaving the planet of Hesperides, an out-of-bounds world governed now by the fearsome Vetch extraterrestrials, Carew, Takiomar and Neffard are sentenced to death...

Unless they agree to travel through Vetch territory in pursuit of a human colony vessel which set off for the Devil's Nebula one hundred years ago. But why is the Expansion authorities so eager to track down the ship, will Carew and co. survive the journey through Vetch territory - and what might they find when they arrive at the Devil's Nebula?

The Devil's Nebula is the first book in a thrilling space opera series, Weird Space. An evil race is threatening not only the human Expansion, but the Vetch Empire, too - an evil from another dimension which infests humans and Vetch alike and bends individuals to do their hideous bidding. And only if humans and Vetch cooperate to fight off the fearsome Weird do they stand a chance of ensuring their survival...

This was the first book I have read of Eric Brown’s. I think that I have found an author I really enjoy reading. This book is a fast-paced action SF book with some great characters, never a dull moment. The second volume in the Weird Space series is Satan’s Reach described as a “fast-paced action-adventure that pits humanity against the unimaginable Terror from Beyond” that hit the newsstands August 2013. ~~ CLD
