Unnatural Selection: A Technological Thriller

An intense thrill-ride in the tradition of Alien, with heart-stopping moments of sheer terror, Unnatural Selection is a twisted tale of life and death in the cold vacuum of outer space.

When Paul Freeman’s ex-girlfriend sends him an SOS from her bio-mechanical research station off Saturn, he doesn’t hesitate to answer the call. After all, things ended amicably between the two of them, and Lena is working with a group of their mutual friends. Once he boards the station—which is called Gratitude—Paul learns that Lena’s team has discovered intelligent life in the solar system. This new-to-humans life form is completely contained, and it doesn’t appear to be hostile.
