Publisher Description

Trouble thrives in the Backworlds, but it's home.

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the first book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

After the war with the Foreworlders, Backworlders scatter across the remaining planets. Competition is fierce, and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze's father improves his fortunes by destroying his son. He tells his only boy their moon isn't big enough for them both and gives Craze a ticket for the next transport leaving the space dock.

Cut off from everyone he knows with little money and no knowledge of the worlds beyond, Craze forge a new life and find a way to make his father regret this day. First, he must survive.

Jason Weisberger, the publisher of Boing Boing, gives The Backworlds 5 stars. "This is a fun, fast-paced novel that reminded me a bit of early Heinlein, Have Spacesuit Will Travel, style storytelling. It is very short and sets up well for further adventures."

Raina: "This is the best creative story I have read since the Wizard of Oz. Full of originality and not washed up with trite characters usually found in the sci-fi genre. Anyone who wants a break from reading the cliche`d space opera this author is on the right track."

K. Dunbak: "Very seldom do you come across truly unique challenges and characters in sci-fi anymore. It was a welcome jaunt into strange new world, and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series. Thanks to the author for revealing an entire new world, no galaxy to me."
