Product Description

Product Description

Mankind has hit a crossroads; their home planet is an exhausted place. Natural resources started to run dry over 100 years ago; societies were crumbling all over the planet with civilised societies having access to food and water severely restricted – people were starving, thirsty and angry. There had been an increase in major wars breaking out. Nuclear threat was as close as it had ever been.

An international space programme ceased to exist due to a worldwide financial meltdown. There were no funds, no researchers, no hope, and therefore no future. An ability to look for life elsewhere in the universe had come to an end. Mankind was dying a slow, painful death.

However, beneath the murky goings on of a falling planet laid a secret government organisation, whose sole purpose was to build a craft capable of harvesting a single man to a nearby planet. This nearby planet was previously targeted as a possible host planet for future human colonies.

The craft is now ready; her occupant ready to represent mankind. It is time for humans to leave their home planet on a long-term space mission – their goals?

1) To search for life
2) To colonise
3) To start again…

4.0 out of 5 stars A unusual and inspiring combination! 11 May 2014

A very interesting take on the colonisation of a new world - told using the medium of poetry! I was a bit terrified going in, not really knowing what to expect - a science-fiction story in prose? It didn't seem to be a workable union. But Andy is very clever at slowly revealing what is actually going on, and all told from the point of view of one man - the nameless protagonist. It is surprising and poignant that the whole thing is written in poetry - it gives the story more depth and makes you try to understand the hero that bit more. Which highlights his humanity and hubris to the point of being very sad for him...
There are a few twists to the tale, but nothing massively shocking or surprising. But it makes me wonder what the next instalment will be. I will definitely look forward to reading what the future of humanity holds, and how it will all be told!
