Every twelve hours the light above his door burns bloody and bright. Every twelve hours a new batch rolls off the genetic assembly line, the saplings that will grow into a new human race. And every twelve hours Lofgren Stenz must delve, deep beneath the surface of our shared consciousness. The purpose of the delve is simple: To cleanse human nature of its lesser angels, the savage beasts that long ago were given form . . . and nearly destroyed us all.

    I’m always gonna be a sucker for space opera. Especially master crafted and produced space opera. Amazing job everyone. Thank you so much.

    Halfway through it and really enjoying it thus far — the setting reminds me of classic, gothic horror, a la “Alien”. Looks like you guys have another winner.
