Beschreibung

"APEMAN" - A stunning work of literary science fiction - The AIMN

When the contents of an embryo vault are deliberately terminated Martin, an "Apeman" (a genetically determined low caste worker), is charged with mass murder. Anthony Farrah is assigned to investigate and defend the accused, but what he discovers could shake the very foundations of their society.

"Gerald St Clare is a bold new voice in Science Fiction! "APEMAN", is masterful debut that is totally gripping from start to finish. St Clare writes with a vision so much bigger than the short story form. Encapsulating a complete world, "Apeman" explores the dark face of genetic determinism, and the deep ethical issues involved in genetic manipulation, class and slavery. Rarely does a new science fiction writer of this calibre come along. Apeman is a stunning work of literary science fiction.". - The AIMN

Apeman

My name is Anthony Farrah and, yes you are right, I am that Anthony Farrah, the one who defended the mass-murdering apeman. But before I explain myself, let me tell the story for those who come after us; those who may not know who we were or how we lived.

In the year 2864 of the pre-diaspora calendar (PDC), I was born into the service caste on Arkship AS337.

The Arkships had left Earth from 2192 PDC until about 2283 PDC (the date all communication from Earth ceased). The first few were built and launched in the hope that humans could escape the death of our only planet, either through depletion of resources, man-made destruction of the environment or catastrophic external events. These early ships carried five to ten Leader caste families totalling fifty people, a few hundred staff to look after them, 200 or so live meat animals and frozen seed banks for the destination plants, animals and around 20 million human embryos.

But by the time AS12 was boosting away from Lunar orbit in 2221, our ancestors had realised the cost of just fixing the world was far less than the cost of running away. If only they had worked that out two hundred years earlier, there would have been so much more to save.

So the new Arkship range starting with AS013 were built solely with the intention of spreading humanity (rather than specific humans) to the stars. Notice how the zero was added by the Public Relations team to suggest a long future. The crews of the 013+ Arkships now numbered only eighty: four manager caste, sixty service caste and a dozen or so apemen. The Leader caste no longer had to suffer generations of death in space, they could be
