GERMINATION by G.L. Sheridan

No-one can escape a hangman. It’s a persistent and indestructible android assassin that tracks an individual’s DNA – and it’s after Clove. He’s forced to seek refuge on his mother’s ship. 
After shaking off the hangman by taking a crazy spiraling route through space, they end up in a wild and woolly part of the galaxy, where they make a rare discovery – a habitable world.  
Readings indicate the only life is vegetation. But evolution has thrown a wild card here, coming up with a totally new life-form. All seems well, until Clove’s carelessness upsets the eco-system, threatening the native people’s way of life. 
Can he correct the damage he has done – and will he survive the arrival of the hangman?
