About the event

Join us for the launch of a Sci-Fi space adventure with heart, soul and humour.

Travel writer Jules Brown, writing as Rex Burke, will take us on a feel-good adventure far from his usual journeys! Those who have read Jules' travel writing or attended his previous event at Pickering Book Tree will know how warm and funny his storytelling is, and this is sure to be another brilliant night.

Jules will read from the first book in his new series, talk about the inspiration and creation of Odyssey Earth, answer questions and sign copies of Orphan Planet. As always, this event is free to attend and comes with a cosy evening in the shop and a glass of wine or cordial.

You can read a short story in the Odyssey Earth universe by subscribing to the email list on Rex Burke's website.

About the book:

Character-driven SciFi with heart and humour – perfect for fans of ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide’ and ‘Red Dwarf’ and with the found-family vibes of 'The House in the Cerulean Sea'

With Earth in crisis, humans are travelling deep into space. But humanity’s future just took a wrong turn.

A seventeen-year colony-ship voyage – a straight shot to a new planet. Handpicked, single-minded crew, and a thousand settlers in hypersleep. No children, no families, no fuss.

That was the plan, anyway.

Captain Juno Washington commands a ship of loners and oddballs. The teenagers of the Odyssey Earth didn’t ask to be born, and face an uncertain future. And Jordan Booth really didn’t want to be woken up early to look after a bunch of kids.

After an unexpected change of course, relationships are tested like never before. If they listen to advice, pull together and stop squabbling, they might just make it.

Yeah, right. Good luck with that.
