Cover reveal!! Orphan Planet by Rex Burke

March 1, 2023

I don’t normally post anything other than memoir reviews here, but Rex Burke is also a memoir writer (by another name) whose books I love, so I’m looking forward to giving his science fiction a go.

And just to invite you a bit further into Rex’s world, here is the blurb of his new book, a real sci-fi adventure:

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.

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.

Like the sound of it? You can pre-order the novel from Amazon here:

And here is the cover…..ta da!!

And….last but absolutely not least, here is Rex himself. Anyone recognise him? 🙂

I personally know Rex to be a truly skilled and accomplished writer. That’s an objective comment. However, I love his sense of humour too, which I’m aware is subjective. Nevertheless, I’m sure Orphan Planet will be a well-written, fun and page-turning read. Give it a try. I’m going to!
