In the far flung future, pre-human artifacts, artifacts that can not be linked to any known colonized planet (and we haven't found any new friends yet) are rare, highly valued, and certainly worth killing for. When Captain Amos January and his crew find a cache of artifacts on a desert planet, he decides to take the only one not nailed down as booty.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The January Dancer tells the fateful story of an ancient pre-human artifact of great power, and the people who found it.

Starting with Captain Amos January, who quickly loses it, and then the others who fought, schemed, and killed to get it, we travel around the complex, decadent, brawling, mongrelized interstellar human civilization the artifact might save or destroy. Collectors want the Dancer; pirates take it, rulers crave it, and they'll all kill if necessary to get it. This is a thrilling yarn of love, revolution, music, and mystery, and it ends, as all great stories do, with shock and a beginning.
