Crash

Dariusz is an engineer whose career ended years ago; now, a man he’s never met sits in a bar that doesn’t exist and offers him a fresh start… at a price.

Cassandra —  ‘Sand,’ to her friends — is a space pilot, who itches to get her hands on the controls and actually fly a ship, rather than watch computers do it for her.

The ‘Pointers’ — the elite 0.01% who control virtually all wealth — have seen the limitations of a plundered Earth and set their eyes on the stars.

And now Dariusz and Sand, and a half-million ambitious men and women just like them, are sent out to extend the Pointers’ and the Market’s influence across the galaxy. But the colony fleet is sabotaged and the ESS Adam Mickiewicz crashes, on an alien planet where one hemisphere is seared by perpetual daylight and the other shrouded in eternal night. The castaways have the chance to create society from scratch… but the hostile planet — or their own leaders — may destroy them before they can even begin.

    Hello Guy Haley. I was browsing what was new in SF at Barnes and Noble and picked up Crash to read the back cover. What jumped out at me was the name of the space craft that crashes on the planet. The ESS Adam Mickiewicz! He was the National poet of Poland. My grandfather on my mothers side was named after him. Adam Mickiewicz was my grandfathers Great grandfather ! So, I. had to buy your book as I am a direct descendent of Polands National Poet. I. am curious as to what led you to use that name. maybe I’ll find out when I. read the book?

      Hello Herb Warren,

      That’s a pretty cool ancestry! I used the name and set part of the book in Poland because I lived there between 1994 and 1996. The passengers of the Mickiewicz are mostly Polish. I arbitrarily decided to name some of the ships in the colony fleet after writers, so the Mickiewicz’s sister ship is called the Goethe (the passengers of that are mainly German). So there you go.

      Thanks for buying it, I hope you enjoy it.

    I read this book in record time as I couldn’t put it down. I’m going to tell my friends and family to give it a read.
    Are you considering a sequel?

      Thanks very much! I would love to write a sequel, and in fact have ideas for a series of books,but sadly whether or not I do write one depends entirely on sales, as books that don’t break a certain threshold of profitability don’t get their sequels picked up by publishers. So, tell your friends, family and whoever else that you liked it, and you’ll be helping the chances of any sequel appearing! Thanks again. I’m really glad you enjoyed it so much.
