About this Series

*Soon to be adapted into a major motion picture from Oscar-winner Bong Joon Ho (Parasite) starring Robert Pattinson*

The Martian meets Dark Matter in Edward Ashton’s thrilling new high concept science fiction world. Expendables are disposable employees on human expeditions sent to colonize ice worlds. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to the Expendable. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of its memories intact.

On a fairly routine scouting mission, Mickey7 goes missing and is presumed dead. By the time he returns to the colony base, surprisingly helped back by native life, Mickey7’s fate has been sealed. There’s a new clone, Mickey8, reporting for Expendable duties. The idea of duplicate Expendables is universally loathed, and if caught, they will likely be thrown into the recycler for protein. Mickey7 must keep his double a secret from the rest of the colony, while saving them from the dangers on the ice world Niflheim at the same time. That is, if he can just keep from dying for good.
