"He had the realisation that all have late in life; that armour does not work, after a lifetime spent forging it..."
He is the Galilean, a living legend: a man with nano-technology flowing in his blood. It means he does not even have to wear a spacesuit as he roams the alien moons of Jupiter.
They are his charges: a group of slush miners who have contracted him to guide them across the salt ice of Europa moon. But none of them can begin to perceive the turmoil taking place in that man's soul...
Inspired by the famous Caspar David Friedrich painting of the same name, 'Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog' is a compelling 12,000–word novelette about the spacefaring future of our species and the enduring rifts in the human condition.
"... a brisk, gripping and thought-provoking read... a touch of evocative poetry and commendable scientific accuracy... Arthur Clarke aficionados will find it reminiscent of 2010: Odyssey Two... an impressive achievement." -- Waldstein, LibraryThing reviewer
