About the Book:

This is a complete short story, not a chapter from a novel. Doug Koeberl is the Prime administrator for the starship Gem of the Stars. With a compliment of 250 crew and over a thousand Farmers - a fundamentalist group pledged to colonizing a new earth - the first two years of the voyage has been peaceful. Now he fears that politics among the crew, and the rise of a charismatic preacher among the Farmers could very well combine to end the voyage of the Gem of the Stars.

About the Author:

Doc Tom is a geologist, teacher, lifelong SF fan, avid photographer and hiker who loves nothing more than a day wandering mountain trails.
