by S.J. Klapecki
A galactic class struggle against impossible odds, battling against exploitation, fighting capitalist moguls, building union solidarity, and finding hope in the darkest times.
Sixty million miles from Earth, in the orbiting city of Station Six, work still sucks. Max is a dockyard worker (with an illegal sideline in hacking and cybersurgery) in the company town of the future. When the LMC Corporation announces its Automated Future Plan, which will turn Station Six into a vacation destination with as few human personnel as needed to stay functional, Max has had enough. Max and their fellow workers rise from their complacency and join forces with an underground revolutionary cell as all hell breaks loose. S.J. Klapecki's debut novel under the Black Dawn umbrella delivers action, intrigue, and politics, as Max and their friends face surveillance, raids, and armored rent-a-cops.
"In a space station future, bare subsistence is the norm and offers of comfort and sustainability are dangled like bait. For Max and their friends, resistance is the one human right that remains untouched. S.J. Klapecki has created a world of anarchist strikes and fervent idealism that should give us all hope for the possibilities of whatever dark future we may be hurtling towards. Humans may be able to reach the stars, but, here, their greatest strength remains the ability to fight back, to band together, and to take on that which oppresses them." -- Alex DiFrancesco, author of All City and Transmutation
