"Absolute top rate science fiction! The author has created characters, planets, methods of travel, atmosphere, etc. so vivid that I felt at times as though I was watching a film and not reading at all. In my opinion, Robert Davies' SPECIMEN 959 is a brilliant work, and deserves "classic" status for his masterful details, superb imagination, and the ability to keep my attention at a peak level throughout the book. I am very excited to read his next and his next and his next books. I say that Davies is to science fiction literature what Gene Roddenberry was to TV. Captivating!"

Astronaut. Repairman. Prisoner.
CenturoCorp engineer Darrien Norris begins a journey across Terran Colonial space to restore a broken mining machine on a distant, mineral harvest world. It was supposed to be routine—a good run to finish his career—but his shuttle is thrown without warning from its course by an unseen power and survival becomes the only thing that matters.
Catapulted across half the galaxy to a violent and hostile place, Norris has been left to survive or die inside an inescapable, alien horror merely for the crime of being lost—of being human. Escape is his purpose, but what he finds in the grinding, desperate fight to live will forever change the path of human history.
