The Captain of the Luminous is mad.
A solar flare tore his ship apart and killed all his crew members. He is creeping back to earth in his crippled vessel for eleven years already - all alone.
Until he intercepts a distress call from an uncharted planet in the middle of nowhere - four stranded humans beg to be rescued from a haunted world.
Each night a peculiar "dark matter" shrouds the planet and troubles the Captain's dreams. The substance lets the Captain relive his agonizing decline into semi-madness after the accident on his ship. Not only that, the "dark matter" also shows him the most horrible and intimate memories of the four ship-wrecked humans.
Will the Captain be able to solve the mystery of the "dark matter", rescue the stranded crew and manage to return to earth, or will he finally succumb to madness?

About the Author

"Nothing is as interesting as other people's problems."
That's the overall motto of Regina's speculative fiction.
Regina Glei was born in Germany but nourished a fascination for the Far East ever since she was a little girl. A graduate in Japanese Studies, she has resided and worked in Japan for more than ten years.
Living far away from her home country has been a powerful influence on her fiction, which she describes as speculative and sometimes weird...
You can find news about Regina and links to her contemporary fantasy novella "Lord of Water", her adventure SF novel "Dome Child", the first two volumes of her contemporary fantasy trilogy about the modern day alchemist Hagen Patterson - "She Should Have Called Him Siegfried" and "To Mix and To Stir", and various short stories on her website:
