Enter the world of ‘Empty Between the Stars’, where gods roam the galaxy and humanity struggles to survive.

In a future where artificial intelligences reign supreme, William Roxley, a former magistrate-priest, is tasked with uncovering the truth behind the murder of one of the Lords of the Great Houses on the ever-night Moon of Hexator.

With the help of his young assistant and a brutish robot bodyguard, William navigates through the eerie society where nothing is as it seems.

As he delves deeper into the darkness, he must confront his own identity in this thrilling science fiction novel where the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred.


It is the far future. The artificial intelligences created by humanity are now gods, and mankind mere ants who scrabble in their shadows across a million worlds.

The Lords of the Great Houses on the ever-night Moon of Hexator are suspected of the murder of one of their own. And merchant William Roxley, once a magistrate-priest, is unwillingly coopted to uncover the truth behind the killings.

With only the help of his naive young assistant and a brutish robot bodyguard, the man they call ‘Sweet William’ digs into the Moon’s eerie existence. A collapsing society where many strange, terrible things are happening under night’s unsettling cover.

Hexator is a place where nothing is what it seems, perhaps not even William Roxley himself!
