It’s the end of the 21st Century. The bulk of Humankind has conjoined itself with an artificial intelligence. A minority remain in opposition. A desperation has taken hold within the unincorporated zones where free humans still live. Many of them are choosing to leave Earth forever and fly to colonies on the moons of Saturn. In an ancient diner, Spruck Jones is about to make a bold move to change his flagging fortunes. Even the best laid plans almost never go as planned.
The Last Rats is a short prequel that introduces the reader to some of the characters and the underlying world that is the basis for the space opera, Bastion Saturn.
