For a thousand years, the breathtaking planet Cadwal has been preserved by the Naturalist Society of Old Earth, with human population strictly limited by a Charter of Conservancy.
But undercurrents of discontent are spreading.
Young Glawen Clattuc is caught up in an insidious movement to open the pristine planet to rapacious developers. Enmeshed in a web of corruption, crime and murder, Glawen pursues a skein of clues and false leads that bring him inevitably to a deadly confrontation.
Araminta Station is the first volume of the Cadwal Chronicles trilogy.
- Matt Hughes
Araminta Station is Book I of the Cadwal trilogy, and Volume 55 of the Spatterlight Press Signature Series. Released in the centenary of the author's birth, this handsome new collection is based upon the prestigious Vance Integral Edition. Select volumes enjoy up-to-date maps, and many are graced with freshly-written forewords contributed by a distinguished group of authors. Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written. These unique features will be appreciated by all, from seasoned Vance collector to new reader sampling the spectrum of this author's influential work for the first time.
