From official release/information:
In a galaxy far far away, whole planet's are devoted to the production of hair carpets for the Emperor. Whole planets the rebels didn't even know existed when they overthrew him and set about freeing the people from they nearly religious devotion to the tired immortal ruler. Now they've stumbled across a bizarre project on a massive scale with no clue as to why the carpets are woven or where the Imperial ships are taking them. The answers will leave readers wondering even after they reach the end of the book.
