Occupy Space is hard science fiction, which means that it's fiction about science. In this case, it's about a bunch of washed up rocket jockeys in South Carolina who decide to build their own launch vehicle and go up into space. I wrote it during the height of the Occupy movement, as the economic recession t-boned my home state, South Carolina, and as the American space program turned the lights off and locked the door. I wanted to take all that harsh reality and turn it into something funny and hopeful.
Think of it as Gravity with more beer.
Here's what readers are saying:
- "Part South Park, part My Name is Earl, and part Astronaut Farmer, Occupy Space is one of the funniest yet most heartwarming books I've read this year." - Michelle, on Amazon
- "This one caught me by surprise. The concept was interesting but not my usual read so it took me a few weeks to get to it. Once I did, I couldn't put it down!" - Terra, on Amazon
- "...there is a big, beating heart in this novella that wants readers to know that they are capable of anything if they are strong, stubborn, and/or stupid enough to give it their all." - Jake, on Amazon
