I published a second edition of The Last Feast. Almost the same, but did some editing that I should have done the first time around to clear up spelling errors.
Jim, the only human still alive in
the universe, lives his life on a small escape pod orbiting a black
hole, where he survives by replicating himself and eating his clones.
Before eating one of his duplicates, he entertains his meal by
recounting the story of how he got here and how he managed to survive.It
began when he had decided to travel to an interstellar colony where he
could sell some museum pieces he owned. En route, the ship he is on gets
momentarily caught in the powerful gravity of a black hole and is flung
trillions and trillions of years into the future. The passengers find
themselves in a time of maximum entropy, where all life is extinct, all
the stars have burned out, and there is nothing left in the universe
except a black hole and a complete vacuum extending in all directions.As
the original crew of seven is slowly reduced through suicide, murder,
and accident, two factions form. One group believes, against all
evidence, that somehow, somewhere, there exists intelligent life in this
universe that can rescue them from this hell, and they devote their
energies to sending out more and more powerful distress calls. The other
group simply wants to preserve the ship's power, so that they can live
comfortably in this hopeless universe as long as possible.
