Publisher's Summary

This work contains the five Beacon 23 stories, originally released in serialized form.
For centuries, men and women have manned lighthouses to ensure the safe passage of ships. It's a lonely job, and a thankless one for the most part - until something goes wrong, until a ship is in distress.
In the 23rd century, this job has moved into outer space. A network of beacons allows ships to travel across the Milky Way at many times the speed of light. These beacons are built to be robust. They never break down. They never fail.
At least, they aren't supposed to.

Thought provoking

Found the beginning a bit slow to get going, but was soon hooked and couldn't put it down. Never quite sure what is real or imagined, beautifully written and perfectly narrated.
