Solaris Author Guy Haley warns of a society in utter thrall to commerce, which must constantly expand to sustain itself, in his second book for Solaris.
“When a mission to the stars begins to go wrong, the fragility of human society and progress is exposed.”
Guy’s The Crash is due for release in July 2013.
Guy Haley’s first novel for Solars Champion of Mars, was released in May 2012 and was described by SF legend Stephen Baxter as “a novel with an ambition on the scale of Olympus Mons itself, and it delivers. Recommended.”
“Guy Haley’s SF invokes in me the same excitement I had when reading Ray Bradbury, Robert Silverberg and Arthur C. Clarke’s works for the first time,” said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris. “His fiction is packed full of ideas while maintaining a very human voice. Haley’s work is complex, exciting and vastly entertaining and I’m delighted to welcome him back to the Solaris fold.”
The Market rules all, plotting the rise and fall of fortunes without human intervention. Mankind, trapped by a rigid hierarchy of wealth, bends to its every whim. To function, the Market must expand without end. The Earth is finite, and cannot hold it, and so a bold venture to the stars is begun, offering a rare chance at freedom to a select few people.
