Outpost Eleven features Marta – the commander at Outpost Eleven – a deep space station, charged with the task to monitor the massive black cloud at the edge of explored space.
A message is received from the closest station – Outpost Ten – saying that they have detected changes in the cloud. After that, there is radio silence. And then, a member of the crew goes missing.
Praise for Outpost Eleven
This tale, while firmly space operatic, does convey a sense of fear that is almost Lovecraftian.
There were stories that really worked me out in anticipation (Outpost Eleven)
Praise for Waiting for the Machines to Fall Asleep
Excellent anthology, well worth reading!

Scandinavian writers tend to have a dark and twisted side that they show mostly in crime novels, but I was happy to find these tortured characters and worlds in more sci-fi/cyberpunk genres as well in this compilation, with some stories that managed to make me check my door locks twice at night before going to sleep.
