Warbler by Joseph Vozzo


Warbler is about the crew of a small spaceship. Humanity has been wiped out in a quick, brutal war that it never had a real chance of winning. The 19 crewmembers are, as far as they know, the last human beings in the universe. It’s not about them saving the world. It’s not about them rebuilding civilization either. It’s about them. How they’re all different. How they cope.

Note: Warbler is unfinished, with no recent updates.

A Fun Space Opera

By Baron Mind, author of The Experiment

Feb 26, 2016: I love the concept behind Warbler: a crew of misfits on a small ship suddenly finds that they’re probably the last humans alive. Where do they go from here? How do they keep on? Do the old rules matter, or is it time to establish a new hierarchy?

It’s an excellent storyline, and Warbler explores the possibilities within it well. There’s a reliably recurring external threat, a number of seething internal conflicts, the faint hope that they might not be the [more . . .]
