The Reality Dysfunction
Buy from Amazon
In AD 2600 the human race is finally beginning to realize its full potential.
Hundreds of colonized planets scattered across the galaxy host a multitude of
prosperous and wildly diverse cultures. Genetic engineering has pushed
evolution far beyond nature's boundaries, defeating disease and producing
extraordinary spaceborn creatures. Huge fleets of sentient trader starships
thrive on the wealth created by the industrialization of entire star systems.
And throughout inhabited space the Confederation Navy keeps the peace. A true
golden age is within our grasp.
But now something has gone catastrophically wrong. On a primitive colony planet
a renegade criminal's chance encounter with an utterly alien entity unleashes
the most primal of all our fears. An extinct race which inhabited the galaxy
aeons ago called it "The Reality Dysfunction." It is the nightmare which has
prowled beside us since the beginning of history.
