A former Earth deep sea miner finds himself in the lucrative business of mining asteroids for precious metals, though his motives and will to fight rely on something far more valuable to him: a future for his family.
Once a respected hero in the deep sea mining community, Calvin Quarterly, an expectant father, travels into the unknown world of deep space asteroid mining. On paper, his desires seem to be purely financial but lurking behind this facade is the desire to provide a future for his family, free of suffering or tribulations that he once experienced. Finding himself at the climax of social and economical events far beyond his understanding, Calvin emerges as the linchpin holding together the very fate of humanity itself as the greatest power struggle ever seen unfolds before his very eyes.

The son of an orthopedic surgeon, Stephen was intrigued by medicine and the different practical applications science had to offer early on, but his main passion, since he was little, was space. Never able to reach space himself, Stephen envisioned characters not meant for outer space being thrown into the unforgiving terrain, struggling to survive and hold onto their humanity.
