"NIGHTFLYERS has the story set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction. In the hope of making contact with alien life, eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard the Nightflyer, a ship with a small, tight-knit crew and a reclusive captain. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question one another and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought"

"NIGHTFLYERS is based on a super natural novella by George R.R.Martin"

GRRM's version of Firefly? ;)

Actually he wrote this back in 1980 so a bit before Firefly.

^^That'd be back when Joss was still playing TRAVELLER at college (which is why Firefly seems soooo much like a traveller rpg party).

I read this book back in 1986 or so, a year or so before the movie came out. GRRM was a guest at a small SF con here in Sydney in 1988, and I got him to autograph it. I think this was loooong before ASOIAF was a thing, too

Is it (the book) any good?

The movie was pretty typical B-Movie sci-fi/slasher dreck.

It's an exception to (my) rule of "once read, always remembered".

I honestly can't recall much about it. I do recall reading it, and then seeing the movie, but apart from Catherine Mary Stewart being in it, I don't recall much else.
