Seven Novels of the Last DaysVolume VI: The Stars Blindly Run
James David Audlin
The Sun is sputtering and guttering with only a pallid reddish light. Dark night has nearly completed its victory over day. What few human beings are left cower in a last village awaiting the eventual death of the world.
Two Hunters struggle for supremacy over a female of a nonhuman race.
A noah builds a sailing ship to escape to the stars in an attempt to evade the end of the Universe.
And then a miracle; no one remembers the last time a child has been born, but here is one, a girl. She is beautiful, but strange, given to dancing weird rituals beneath the Moon and painting self-portraits in the nude. One of the two Hunters, Adam Winter, dares to confront her with his love, with disastrous consequences.
The other Hunter, Ikaros, consumed with rage, teams up with a noah to build an Ark -- and it sails into space seeking a new world where humanity might yet live. But there is no miracle for Ikaros; again and again they come back to the same tired world and its darkening Sun.
