Static Ruin

The Voidwitch Saga#3

Corey J. White

Static Ruin

Corey J. White concludes his pulse-pounding space opera in Static Ruin. As the most wanted voidwitch in the galaxy has no place left to run—except back to those who created her.

She killed the man who trained her. She killed the fleet that came for her. She killed the planet that caged her. Now she must confront her father.

Mars Xi is on the run, a bounty on her head and a kill count on her conscience. All she has left are her mutant cat Ocho and her fellow human weapon Pale, a young boy wracked by seizures who can kill with a thought. She needs him treated, and she needs to escape, and the only thread left to pull is her frayed connection to her father, Marius Teo. That thread will take her to the outskirts of the galaxy, to grapple with witch-cults and privately-owned planets, and into the hands of the man who engineered her birth.

Praise for Killing Gravity

“This novella feels like a blockbuster, full of imaginative worldbuilding and fight sequences.” —Publishers Weekly

“Rip-roaring space opera with a side of magic mushrooms! Fans of Firefly will love Killing Gravity.” —Will McIntosh, Hugo Award-winning author of Love Minus Eighty.

“Solidly fun space opera from start to finish.” —Locus

Killing Gravity, by Corey J. White, is an intense combination of rip-roaring pulp space opera action and cyberpunk noir sensibility.” —James L. Cambias, Nebula Award-nominated author of Corsair.

“If you’re hungering for a snark-soaked adventure with a side helping of fabulous space-craftery and densely packed adventure, Killing Gravity might be what you’re after.” —Jeremy Szal
