The Purlieu

Equal Justice Under the Stars

By Anthony J. Zingales

“Space is the cure!” Attorney Wynne Porter mounts a defense for the wrongly accused. His client may be innocent, but Wynne is not. After 200 years of cryosleep and barely passing the bar, he stands no chance against the legal might of the pansolar Judicial Protectorate. When Neptune Circuit Court threatens to hold him in contempt, Wynne must make a choice.

“Lawyer up!” Vowing to uphold his oath, Wynne stirs up a legal grudge match between clandestine reformists and the almighty Supreme Court. While spearheading the trials of the revolution, Wynne must find a moral high ground in a band of dubious allies—a self-righteous eco-terrorist, a smothering robot, and a psychopathic AI. Instead of an army, Wynne raises a planet-hopping legal sortie and plunges into objection-laden courtroom capers to defy the Judicial Protectorate..

"Space is the cure."

Naïve ideologue Franklin Kline fancies himself humanity's savior. But a coup d'état 300 years in the making ignites a political time bomb. A firestorm of unrest sweeps through the solar system. A tyrannical tycoon seizes control of pansolar government. Wounded and shaken, Kline's survival depends on once-trusted colleague, Eta Porter, but she conceals ambitions of her own.

Few turfside dreamers dare to challenge the new regime. But spacefaring humans—humans not of Earth—resist.

Moonskin is the story of a forsaken Earth, one man who will stop at nothing to escape it, and two moonborn rogues who can never go home again.
