Becoming a metaman was more of an escape from Ross McGowan's downward-spiralling life than a job he really wanted but years of isolation, degradation and drudgery in the service of the Post-Human Collective would give him plenty of time to regret the choice. The company of Tracey Lane, his magnificent captain and mentor, might have helped him through it, if the discovery of an ancient Martian technology hadn't thrown him into deadly peril and set Earth and the post-humans on the path of war.
Trapped millions of kilometres from home and pressed into service as a human guinea-pig for the post-humans as they pursue their desperate ambitions to escape Earth before the war escalates beyond control, Ross, ever haunted by the trauma of his past, steers a fine line between survival and revolt. As events around the post-humans evolve at breakneck speed, Ross and the other humans in the same predicament are branded collaborators by the governments of Earth, making escape from the Post-Human Collective a death sentence.
And crucial to everything, is the answer to Fermi's old question, "Where are all the aliens?"
Metaman is the exciting new novel from best-selling science fiction writer, Graham Storrs, author of the Timesplash novels, the Placid Point novels and many more.
