The Cosmos of Despair
by Chris L. Adams
With all peoples of the known populated cosmos enslaved by the cruel, gray denizens of Deneb, a band of misfits on one of their slave ships plan a desperate mutiny.

Of course, there also exists the possibility that their tortured bodies will be fed into the incinerators to fuel the ship.
