    Interesting Portrait of an Interesting Character

    If you enjoyed Leviathan Wakes you'll likely enjoy this piece of short fiction that expands on the character of Fred Johnson. There isn't really anything surprising or revelatory about this book, but it's a nice glimpse into what brought that character to the place we find him in Leviathan Wakes. You should definitely read the main book first though. Not enough to this short story to stand on its own.
