Pre Pub Book Buzz -- Hull Zero Three by Greg Bear

So I've been using my Saturdays here to post about books that aren't out on shelves yet. Books that I'm particularly jazzed about. Sometimes, I've had the opportunity to read them ahead of time and am able to post my own review here. Most of the time, though, it's a preview for all of us.

Such is the case with Greg Bear's latest, Hull Zero Three. Now, I've not heard much about this one just yet, though it is due out on shelves November 22. But, Orbit in all their fabulousness, posted the first three chapters as a teaser on Tuesday. You can check that out here. And, here's the synopsis from Bear's own website:

A starship hurtles through the emptiness of space. Its destination-unknown. Its purpose-a mystery. Now, one man wakes up. Ripped from a dream of a new home-a new planet and the woman he was meant to love in his arms-he finds himself wet, naked, and freezing to death. The dark halls are full of monsters but trusting other survivors he meets might be the greater danger.

All he has are questions-- Who is he? Where are they going? What happened to the dream of a new life? What happened to Hull 03?

All will be answered, if he can survive the ship.

HULL ZERO THREE is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride through the darkest reaches of space.

I'm totally intrigued! Sounds slightly in line with Pandorum, no? Well, we'll just have to wait and see. Given the fact that I've enjoyed each Orbit book I've tried, I've no doubt this will be a favorite!

I haven't seen any buzz about this book anywhere and this is in fact my first time hearing about it. It looks really good!
