Thumbs up Free (Kindle) RIME by Tim Lebbon [Sci-Fi Classic Poem Retelling Space Opera Novella]

RIME by Welsh author Tim Lebbon (ISFDB, Wikipedia, SFE), a recipient of multiple British Fantasy Awards, is his science fiction space opera novella, which is a retelling inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge's classic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Wikipedia), free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Venture imprint.

This is one of their original publications by an established author, and was previously offered free in 2016.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
Adrift in space, a gigantic freighter, Cradle, carrying seventeen million souls makes its slow journey across the universe.

They are in search of a new home, a ‘Goldilocks’ planet to sustain human life after the decimation and downfall of planet Earth.

One man, a control room tech, is part of a generation destined to live their lives protecting those of the sleeping millions onboard Cradle.

But soon, everything is about to change…

When Cradle encounters five unknown entities flying just beyond its radars, the ship’s AI calls for caution. Comms go down across the gargantuan ship, cutting the tech from the millions of other souls under his watch.

Those in cryosleep don’t realise the danger they are in. Their lives are in the balance.

And the alien ships are fast approaching…

Now this lonely technician must make his decision: will he stand his ground, and risk the lives of millions?

Or is it time to admit that humanity has strayed too far into the unknown?

Mankind’s fate is in his hands. Soon, the consequences of his actions and the message he bears will be felt for generations to come…

RIME is a gripping sci fi novella, retelling the harrowing tale of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Ancient Mariner against the indomitable backdrop of deep space.

Sounds neat. Thanks! I'm more familiar with Tim Lebbon as a horror author.
