The Gripping Hand

by

The Gripping Hand Cover

 

 

Excerpt

A severed head spun across black sky. He had been a Marine: square jaw, close-cropped blonde hair, glittering dead eyes. The slack mouth tried to speak. "Tell them," it said. "Stop them." Vacuum made its skin puffy, and blood made frozen bubbles on the thick neck. "Wake them. Wake them up. Mr. Bury, sir. wake up," it said urgently. The sky swarmed with small six-limbed shapes. They thrashed in the vacuum, found their balance, and swam toward him, past him, toward the battleship Lenin. Vacuum swallowed his scream. "Wake up," they chittered at him. "Please Excellency, you must wake up." His Excellency, Horace Hussein Al-Shamlan Bury, Trader and Magnate, jerked and twitched and was sitting upright. He shook his head and forced his eyes open. The small, dark man was standing a safe distance away. Bury said "Nabil. What time is it?" "It's two in the morning, Excellency. Mr. Renner insisted. He said to tell you. 'The gripping hand.' "
