Halcyon Drift, a stand alone novel is the first in the Hooded Swan
series by Brian Stableford. I haven't kept the post recommending this
but am sure it was from here so thank you for an interesting read.
A shipwrecked loner, Grainger is coerced to fly a new spacecraft, (a
combination of human and alien technologies), to find a lost treasure
heralded by the now 80 year bleeping of its crashed spaceships emergency
signal. With many complications and plausible settings he censored by
spoiler police. Little suspense but interesting and an easy flowing read
though much of the descriptive science was more imagination than
physics. The exposition of a fascinating background was well interweaved
with the development of Graiger's situation. The characters and their
interactions were interesting. I will read the next in the series.
