In space, to steal air is the cardinal sin.
Jim Dorville was one of life's losers, let out of jail only to be ripped off by the shuttle operator taking him home. He and his space station – his personal stinkbucket – set off on a trail of adventure that will lead them to an interplanetary conspiracy where whether a mind is human of cyber falls into insignificance alongside the explosion of cultures that followed civilisation's expansion into space – and to its astonishing climax. Nobody Steals My Air is a novella-length tale of the Last Frontier, of what it is to be human in the birth pangs of a new era.
Six more tales in this slim but thoughtful collection span the universe, from Victorian steam-punk to the deepest reaches of space, time and being.
