…the horror is more horrifying because you care about the main character.” (amazon review comment)


Sii Terminus is a space-gannta, a loser crewing deep-space freighters whose best friend is a bottle of snakki. Until one day he is chosen to command an unusual mission to ferry a diplomat to the obscure, dead world of Thanatos One. Except the planet is not as dead as it seems, and Terminus has not been chosen by accident…

Hammer Horror meets Aliens in this fast-paced tale of horror, love, and betrayal, where the fate of all humanity rests on the actions of an anti-hero with a hangover.

Terminus is Paul Melhuish’s debut novel, and won’t be his last tale set in the worlds of the Skyfire Saga. In fact, a short story sequel, Babel, is already available.

Paul Melhuish

Like Tolkien, many authors lovingly craft unique languages and dialects to add realism and colour to their fiction. Paul is no exception and has posted an article explaining Skyfirean vernacular entitled: Bad Language: learn yerself Skyfirean.

    I am a new beta reader with Greyhart Press. I am wondering about this Terminus, I think it’s part of a series called Skyfire Chronicles but I’m not sure. How many books in this series already as I’d like to read one or two to see if I want to get started with them. Could I possibly find them in my library?

    Thanks Michele

      Hi Michele, Terminus is the first Skyfire book and it is a standalone. The author has written several short stories and novelettes in the same Skyfire universe and that will be published in September. We hope to have a sequel to Terminus, though we’ve no date on this.
      About your library, no, I doubt very much that you will find it there, sorry.
