Fanatical terrorists attack thousands of refugees, but this isn’t today’s world. This isn’t even our universe. A colossal black hole dominates the few remaining settlements and it’s only a matter of time before it swallows them as well.
In this place, two sides fight a long-running ideological battle: Those who strive to survive and those who don’t see the point. Doing his best to ignore this struggle is Matari, who manages to stay out of it until a talkative hallucination, an annoying acquaintance, and a murderous missionary all propel him into the maelstrom.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I believe that science fiction is actually easier to work in than many others, because you can use these fantastic settings to deal with issues that have affected human beings for thousands of years.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
The biggest piece of advice I can give is simple: Write. Just keep writing and never look back. Don’t self-edit during your first draft. Just write, write, and write until that first draft is done. Afterwards that story is out there for sale, try to keep a balance between marketing and writing that’s heavily tilted towards the latter.
If you have a good story to tell and execute it well then, eventually, everything else will take care of itself.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration for this particular story came about from my study of history and its often cyclical nature. This, combined with events that are happening in our world right now, blended into an epic series arc that ended up deeper than the adventure and humor that exists on its surface.
