3 Space craft, 240 colonists, 25 trillion miles and an unexpected discovery that changes everything.
Classic science fiction that will appeal to fans of Arthur C. Clarke. Astronomicon: The Beginning follows the human race's intrepid first steps into interstellar space, a colonisation mission to Proxima Centauri. The colossal distance and harsh environment are not all that stand between them and survival.
This first volume in the epic Astronomicon series is the story of their desperate adventures and the political machinations that are unfolding back on Earth, which threaten to end space exploration permanently. With established colonies on Mars and a thriving mining community around Jupiter, will everyone want to come home?
