Product description

Product Description

Dirt is for rebels.

Life On Dirt is jam-packed with indelible characters and lush prose that makes you think of such top-tier ‘coming of age’ tales as The Dark Beyond the Stars and The Testament of Jessie Lamb, and the kind of tech-heavy and often biting first-person narrative that might make Andy Weir smile.” ~ Dayton Ward, NYT Bestselling Author, ”Star Trek: Headlong Flight”

Sixty years ago the United States Space Service was created and empowered to protect the potentially unlimited knowledge and wealth of space for the benefit of the whole of humankind. Guardians of fusion technology and everything above the atmosphere, the Space Service controls the flow of people, materiel, and information between Earth and the space stations, Luna, and Mars. Everyone in space is bound to the Space Service, and all spacers belong to the Service-mandated racial elite. The Space Service owns the stars—and it does not intend to share.

Seventeen-year-old Mara Duval, born in space, was destined to be part of humanity’s first mission to the moons of Jupiter, until a medical accident left her quarantined on dirt forever.

But dirt is not the blighted wasteland she’d been taught it was, and the Space Service is holding humanity’s future hostage behind a wall of lies. Now Mara is fighting back by transmitting videos of the truth to friends in space, speaking out whenever she can, and sharing technology and secrets with her Dirt ally Jael Alden, a young visionary determined to break through the Space Service’s racial barrier.

She knows she doesn’t have much time until the Space Service realizes what she’s doing and stops her. But until they do, Mara’s going to make the most of her life on dirt.

“Kevin Killiany’s delightfully immersive writing sucks you right into the characters, their situation, their location, and their lives. A most compelling read.” ~ Keith R. A. DeCandido, Author of Novels in “Star Trek,” “Supernatural,” “Sleepy Hollow,” and More

About the Author

AUTHOR: I began writing in 1967, right after I started reading, and--if you overlook thousands of rejections and thirty-three years of practice--was an immediate success. Since my first sale in 2000 I've sold three novels, a half-dozen novellas, and thirty-one short stories. I've also co-written or co-edited nineteen role-players' resource and rule books. My writing is fueled by two questions: "What happened?" and "What if?" The first motivates my exploration of lesser-known history, and the second drives my speculations about how our world would be changed if we had chosen differently. From those two streams my stories flow.

EDITOR: Some say I was born with a red pen in my hand, so it's no surprise that my penchant for words and stories ultimately led to a career in writing and editing. My literary tastes vary, but I largely gravitate toward genre fiction. I'll read anything sci-fi, fantasy, horror, western, and so forth. Some of my favorite contemporary authors are Dan Simmons, Chuck Wendig, David Brin, George R. R. Martin, and John Scalzi.
