The Backworlds is here!

The first story in the Backworlds series by M. Pax. A vision of how humanity might colonize the galaxy some day in the distant future.







The Backworlds

After the war with Earth, bioengineered humans scatter across the Backworlds. Competition is fierce and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to hoard his fortune by destroying his son. Cut off from family and friends, with little money, and even less knowledge of the worlds beyond his own, Craze heads into an uncertain future. Boarding the transport to Elstwhere, he vows to make his father regret this day.

M. Pax’s inspiration comes from the wilds of Oregon, especially the high desert where she shares her home with two cats and a husband unit. Creative sparks also come from Pine Mountain Observatory where she spends her summers working as a star guide.

She writes mostly science fiction and fantasy, but confesses to an obsession with Jane Austen. She blogs at her website, http://www.mpaxauthor.com/ and at Wistful Nebulae. You’ll find links there to connect on Twitter, Goodread, FB and other sites.

The sequel, Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge, will be released in July 2012. It will be available in all ebook formats and paperback.

  5. Downloaded! I'm looking forward to reading and reviewing it. It will be a bit, though. I'm playing catch up after attending the Gadling travel bloggers conference in DC.

    1. She is, Inger! If you read sci-fi, Backworlds has an interesting premise. It's a free read, and gives you a sample of her writing. She's a friendly blogger, too.

    1. Hi, J., yes, I know you like sci-fi, like me. This is one of the new sci-fi writers, for those of us who are getting tired of re-hashed tales.
