Machine: A White Space Novel

Book Two of White Space

by Elizabeth Bear


Meet Doctor Jens.

She hasn’t had a decent cup of coffee in fifteen years.

The first part of her job involves jumping out of perfectly good space-ships. The second part requires developing emergency treatments for sick aliens of species she’s never seen before.

She loves it.

But her latest emergency is also proving a mystery:

Two ships, one ancient and one new, locked in a dangerous embrace.
A mysterious crew suffering from an even more mysterious ailment.
A shipmind trapped in an inadequate body, much of her memory pared away.
A murderous virus from out of time.

Unfortunately, Dr. Jens can’t resist a mystery. Which is why she’s about to discover that everything she’s dedicated her life to… is a lie.
