SFWA Grand Master Cherryh returns to the Hugo-award
winning Alliance-Union Universe with a thrilling entry in
her far-reaching sci-fi saga.
For years, the stations of the Hinder Stars, those old
stations closest to Sol, have lagged behind the great
megastations of the Beyond, like Pell and Cyteen. But new
opportunities and fears arise when Alpha station receives
news of an incoming ship with no identification. The
denizens of Alpha wait anxiously for news about the
outsiders, each with their own suspicions about the ship and
Ross and Fallon, crew members of the Galway, believe
the unidentified ship belongs to Pell and has come to
investigate another massive ship docked at Alpha, The
Rights of Man. Though Rights is under the command
of the Earth Company, it is not quite perfected--and its
true purpose is shrouded in mystery.
James Robert Neihart, captain of Finity's End--a huge
faster-than-light ship flown by one of the Merchanter
Families--has heard whispers of The Rights of Man and
wonders at its design and purpose, especially as Sol
struggles to rival the progress of the Farther Stars. Now
docked at Alpha, he must convince the crews that there is
more to The Rights of Man than meets the eye.
Because the reasons behind the creation of The Rights of
Man, and its true plans, could change everything--not
just for Sol, but for the Hinder Stars and the Beyond itslf.
