The Erinys Incident

by Tani Koshu

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Erinys, tiny moon of Uranus, home to a tinier and almost forgotten colony. Left behind in the debris of the failed Outer Planet Revolt in 2099, Erinys is quietly decaying. For the hunted remnants of the Outer Planet Alliance (OPA), however, it offers a potential hiding place, and, possibly, a way to independence for the Outer Planets. With a highly detailed background, realistic technology, and convincing characters, The Erinys Incident is a fascinating journey from deep in the gravity well of the sun, to lonely outposts far beyond the rings of Saturn.
Description
Erinys, tiny moon of Uranus, home to a tinier and almost forgotten colony. Left behind in the debris of the failed Outer Planet Revolt in 2099, Erinys is quietly decaying. For the hunted remnants of the Outer Planet Alliance (OPA), however, it offers a potential hiding place, and, possibly, a way to independence for the Outer Planets. With a highly detailed background, realistic technology, and convincing characters, The Erinys Incident is a fascinating journey from deep in the gravity well of the sun, to lonely outposts far beyond the rings of Saturn. When it comes to gritty, realistic Space Opera, Tani Kōshū's name is always high on the list. With an extensive future history stretching from the early 21st century (and already partially overwritten by the pace of history!) into the far future, he writes of people and spaceships with quirks and "issues," facing life-and-death problems with creativity and dogged determination. Tani's first story in English, "Q-Cruiser Basilisk," was published to acclaim in Speculative Japan Volume 2, and Erinys reveals another part of his saga of the development of starfaring humanity. The author is currently revising his works to take recent astronomical discoveries (and technological developments) into account, and continuing to write new adventures set in the same universe.
About the author
TANI Koshū graduated in civil engineering and worked in the field for many years, but later joined JICA, volunteering his services to construction in Nepal. His first SF sale was in 1979. In addition to hard SF, mostly in his evolving future history, he also pens thrillers, often based on his mountaineering experiences in the Himalayas and elsewhere. He won the 15th Nitta Jiro Literary Prize in 1996 for Shirakimine no otoko (Man of the Snowcapped Peaks).
