Apex Publications is pleased to announce that we have acquired a new science fiction novel titled SEVERANCE by Chris Bucholz.
Two hundred years of idleness, infighting, and inbreeding have left the occupants of the generation ship USMV Argos in pretty bad shape. Certainly not in any shape to colonize a planet. Not if it was a planet you liked.
The Argos and its cargo of fifty thousand cretins is the home of Laura Stein, ship’s engineer, genetic experiment, and amateur cat burglar. And as the massive vessel nears the end of its journey, Stein’s days are filled cleaning up the messes of these imbeciles, and abusing them for it.
While prowling around in a place she definitely shouldn’t be, she uncovers a sinister conspiracy that threatens the entire ship. Stein and her friends soon find themselves allied with the people they hate most, in a desperate adventure filled with reckless stunts, too many wigs, and repeated blows to the groin, racing to stop a plot generations in the making.
