Featured SciFi Book: Silo Saga: Hoarder in the Down Deep by Marilyn Peake

About Silo Saga: Hoarder in the Down Deep by Marilyn Peake

It’s against the law to have children without winning the lottery. Implanted with a birth control device as required by law, Evangeline Hubbard, a dirt farmer in the down deep, discovers that implants sometimes fail. But in a world strictly controlled by the authorities, one pays a terrible price for tampering with the established order. Consumed by fear and madness after things go horribly wrong, Evangeline hoards in order to hang onto things. She adds them to the nest she’s building in the down deep.

HOARDER IN THE DOWN DEEP is a novelette based on the best-selling WOOL series by Hugh Howey, and was written with his permission. It’s set in the time when Sheriff Holston and his wife Allison had won the lottery, giving them one year to conceive a child. Investigating the case of Evangeline Hubbard, Sheriff Holston and Mayor Jahns are unprepared for what they find. HOARDER IN THE DOWN DEEP explores how psychological issues and emotional pain can lead to hoarding. It also explores the mental strain placed on women who have lost control over their own reproductive processes.

When Marilyn Peake emailed Hugh Howey about writing a fan fiction story that would introduce a hoarder into the silo world of his WOOL universe, he quickly wrote back: “Love the idea!” That made her entire day. It still makes her smile. Marilyn is a serious fan of Hugh Howey’s writing. She’s in awe of his writing skills and the incredible science fiction world he developed in the WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST books of his SILO SAGA.

The Atomic Sea: Part One by Jack Conner

TheAtomicSea_1563x2500-FIFTY-PERCENTImagine the epic fantasy adventure of “Lord of the Rings” blended with the cosmic strangeness of China Mieville or Jeff Vandermeer, and you’ll have some idea of the wonders and delights awaiting you in “The Atomic Sea”, a brand-new series by bestselling author Jack Conner.

A thousand years ago, the sea changed, becoming strange and unnatural, and in the process transforming the world. Now, with the Empire of Octung plunging the world into a terrible war, only one man — Dr. Francis Avery — and his rag-tag band have a hope of ending the chaos and, once and for a all, uncovering the mystery of the Atomic Sea.

Dr. Avery is out on the sea serving as the doctor aboard a whaling ship when a most curious patient is brought to him — a beautiful woman fished out of the Atomic Se, who has survived the horrors and poisons of the water, and who carries a secret that could either save the world or damn it. At the same time, murders have been occurring aboard the ship — there’s a spy for Octung aboard. If Avery doesn’t save the woman from the killer and help her achieve her ends, the whole world will be plunged into nightmare.

This is just the beginning of the incredible adventure waiting in “The Atomic Sea: Part One”.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’m a huge fan of both H. P. Lovecraft and Star Wars. What to do? Create a giant, action-packed epic fantasy / science fiction adventure series featuring (in the dim, barely-glimpsed background) looming horrors from other dimensions.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
SciFi must be mind-blowing. Otherwise, what’s the point?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Watching sci-fi and fantasy movies, and anime of the 1980’s and 90’s was a huge inspiration. I also remember running home after school and putting the needle on the record of 2001: A Space Odyssey’s soundtrack and thinking of cool sci-fi scenarios and characters.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
Science fiction is something that hasn’t happened yet… so it’s up to the narrator to display it to the readers.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Several things came together to inspire H.A.L.F. I live in Arizona and have driven by the proving ground several times. It’s an incredibly hot and desolate place. Ever since I first went out that way in 1994, I thought it would be cool to set a story in that part of Arizona.
Then one day, I was driving around town doing errands, and the song Cowboys & Aliens by Gramm Rabbit came on. It happened to be late spring and already hot in the desert and I happened to be driving on a foothills ridge that looks down on the valley below. It all came together at that moment and I knew that I had to write a story about aliens and government conspiracy that took place in Arizona. The basic premise was this: The alien conspiracy theorists have it wrong. The secret government base creating alien-human hybrids isn’t in Dulce, New Mexico. It’s in Arizona.
And no one knows a thing about it or the dangerous creations that lurk there.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
One word I think sums up the difference: Science. There has to be some component of science involved in the story.
H.A.L.F. is not “hard” sci fi. I would say H.A.L.F. is character and action driven, not science driven. But the science is there to support the plot. And to me it’s very important that the science in science fiction be accurate (if it’s a science or technology that presently exists) and plausible (if it’s a speculation or extrapolation).
In H.A.L.F. (especially as the series progresses), there is a combination of “real” science (i.e. technologies that exist today) coupled with my speculation about how a futuristic or other-worldly technology may look/work, etc. Because I’m a huge science and technology geek, it is great fun for me to research the science/technology elements of the book. I especially like picking the brains of scientists ;-)
