What is the spark of life? How many years can pass before it’s too late to fix our mistakes? Off World begins with a young man named Jasper South waking from a ten year stay in cryostasis. He’s woken forty years early by his former employee, Phillip Swan, who has lived those ten long years entangled in a world of illegal, state-of-the-art science and the criminal underworld. Jasper finds that a dark conspiracy has put not only his life in danger, but the lives of those he loves. The book is heavily inspired by the aesthetic dark-fable worlds of ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER, as well as conversation-style films like BEFORE SUNRISE and MY DINNER WITH ANDRE. Aiming to do something different with the science-fiction genre.
