Summary

Despite its guise as a space pirate, the Dread Remora is still a ship of Her Majesty's Royal Navy, so when Captain Nate Demming and his crew discover a brutally savaged ship, they are appalled. When a second ship appears and attacks, Demming assumes these must be the predators and retaliates. The events that unfold lead to new discoveries for the Dread Remora, including some potential allies - and a ferocious new enemy.

The novella Crossed Paths is the second tale of the Dread Remora, following the full-length novel The Birth of the Dread Remora. The Dread Remora series is part of the epic Scattered Earth saga. There is a new full-length Dread Remora novel in the works, and the second book in the series The Second Veil - by David Niall Wilson - is also available.

Also listen to The Second Veil.

A Strange Short Story!

Although the price was small, it was only 1 hour long. It also jumped around a bit and considered space to be "in the ether". It was hard to follow at times. The HMS Dread Remora is a space ship with particle weapons, etc, but "talk tubes" to communicate with sections of the ship and a standard "wheel" to control the ship. Actually, the wheel makes some sense, but the rest sounded like a Sci-Fi written in 1850 despite the 2011 copyright.
