Those of you who’ve read City of Ruins know that the Ivoire was trapped in foldspace for a long time. Although City mentions how the Ivoire got trapped, it doesn’t show what happened. All that takes place in Becalmed, a short novel featuring Coop’s ex-wife, Mae. There’s a lot here, things you haven’t heard before, and some background on the Fleet. Plus the book stands alone if you’ve never read anything in the Diving universe.
