Combining technical curiosity and classic storytelling, Charlie Nash’s first three collections celebrates the foundational SF genres, including space opera, military SF, cyberpunk, steampunk, post-apocalyptic and dark fantasy, including stories shortlisted for the Aurealis and Ditmar Awards.

A new breed of ship’s doctor walks into a crisis in a far-flung space station. A predatory ship of legend stalks an Earth-bound transport. A damaged corporate soldier battles hell on an alien planet – and in his head. A salvage crew goes hunting for profits and ends up in a desperate race for their lives – and everyone else’s.

In a future of corporatized agriculture, a fault-finder corners an unusual saboteur. A quantum-damaged man considers destroying his enemies – but at what cost?
