A sky with no stars breeds no heroes.
Fear the sky with BP Gregory's latest science-fiction horror novel, Outermen.
Cathy counts herself lucky to survive day to day in a world where emotion is prescribed, and around the earth is only a shell. No sun. No universe. Nobody to look up in wonder.
Now the void has spat back Michael, first of the heroes who years ago ventured beyond the shell and were lost. Michael is splintered in mind and body and hardly a soul recalls him. Even the bride he so desperately struggled to return to is long dead.
Suddenly Cathy, who would have been his sister-in-law, is noticed and needed. Repulsed as she is it will fall to her to extract from his blasted mind the horrifying secret to Outside. But this is no place for happily ever after.
Amazingly-written, weird, claustrophobic, space, alternate Earth, horror story from a brilliant author who consistently nails it!

A story about society, and more.
Wonderfully unsettling. You know a book is great when you stop reading it for a while because you're worried about what is going to happen to a character.
