More in dystopia


Polish science fiction master Marek S. Huberath’s mind-bending Nest of Worlds—his first novel to appear in English—is a metafictional adventure through a dystopian world that owes as much to Borges, Saramago, and even Thomas More as it does to Stanislaw Lem. In this world, every thirty-five years residents must move to a new “Land," and each person bears a "Significant Name" that foretells the manner of their deaths.
A rare married couple in the Land of Davabel, Gavein Throzz and Ra Mahleiné each make sacrifices to stay together. As they navigate the difficult terrain, the two find themselves amidst a series of deaths linked only by their connection to Gavein himself. Struggling to solve the mystery, keep his ailing wife alive, and surviving his new notoriety as the incarnation of Death, Gavein discovers a book titled Nest of Worlds—populated by characters whose fates lie in the hands of the reader, and who, in turn, read their own versions of Nest of Worlds. Huberath’s novel is a stirring meditation on reality, love, and the darkest aspects of human nature.

Reviews
"I am inclined to call Nest of Worlds...a masterwork not of science fiction, but of Polish fiction. It is a book where characters live and die, and—more importantly—where we struggle with the fact that they do."
—3:AM Magazine

KAHAYATLE. My name is Bryn Mathis. I'm seventeen years old, and I live in a neighborhood outside of Orlando, Florida. I’m here alone because my dad died almost a year ago, along with all the other adults in the world. I'm almost out of food, and the gangs of kids that roam around my town are getting more vicious by the day. It's time for me to leave and find another place to live ... a place where I can find food and shelter ... a place where they won't be able to find me. Alone, it might have been possible, but now I've got company. I'm worried that I don't have what it takes to get from here to my final destination, and I have no idea what might be waiting for me when I get there.

HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT APOCALYPSIS: BOOK 1 (KAHAYATLE):

“The storytelling was absolutely first class.” ~Trevor Morris, reviewer

"Elle Casey has done it again. Created a world that drags you in and won't let you go.  I think I am a little bit in love with her brain ... at least the imagination part of it.  I love books that make me root for the characters, and this one has you rooting from the very first page..." ~ Cynthia Shepp book reviews

"What took me so flipping long to read this book?! Apocalypsis: Kahayatle was so very different than what I expected - but just that much better because of it. Elle Casey creates a world ridden with violence and horror and injects the perfect amount of belly-laughing sarcasm, wit, and romance. Her characterization is phenomenal and honest through a setting that is disturbingly realistic..." BetweentheBind.blogspot.com ~ Jenna, Book Blogger

“I read A TON of dystopians and post-apocalyptic novels. They all run together, but not this one. This is the kind of dystopian that I want to read.  I love the world Elle Casey has created. It’s a tamed-down, less-depressing, good-humoured The Road meets a more-aggressive, less sophisticated The Silence of the Lambs. Read this! It’s bloody brilliant.” ~ Lucas Deal, Goodreads Reviewer

“If you don’t enjoy reading books that tend to be addictive and take over your life until you have finished reading it, stay away from Apocalypsis. It was nearly impossible to put down. It is also funny - I spent most of the book chuckling or full out laughing.” ~ Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Goodreads reviewer

Our creation should have saved the world. Instead, we helped destroy it.

A new generation of cyborg, they were supposed to calm hostilities between those who created the artilects and those who opposed them. Instead, they were the spark that ignited the Artilect War.

They survived—but so did their enemies. Now the very people they’re trying to save are intent on annihilating them.

Nonetheless, as long as humanity fights for its survival, so will they. Only, this time, there needs to be a winner—the future of the human race depends on it.

I am Ailith, Pantheon Modern Program Omega Cyborg O-117-9791. Your future is in my hands.

 

This volume contains all three Artilect War novels:

 

THE SEEDS OF WINTER

Would you become a cyborg just to survive? I did, and it ended the world.

Cyborg Ailith woke in the aftermath of the Artilect War to find the modern world destroyed and her kin facing execution. Letting them die is not an option, for humankind will survive only if they do. But to save them, she and Tor must confront old foes—and a self-proclaimed god.

 

THE GARDENER OF MAN

Humankind believed we were the enemy. I’m starting to think they were right.

The Pantheon cyborgs have found the source of the mysterious signal, and with it, pieces of the past they’d thought lost forever. But everyone has secrets—their creators, their rivals...even their new ally, Fane, whose secret is the most dangerous of all. And when those secrets are exposed, they trigger a chain of events that once again leaves them all fighting for survival.

THE HARVEST OF SOULS

The time has come to reap what we’ve sowed.

Their enemies have joined forces to destroy them—and taken one of their own. When their hunt for allies ends in a deadly confrontation, Ailith and the others must decide how far they’re willing to go to end this war—because if the human race is to survive, committing the unthinkable might be the only solution.

If you like dystopian science fiction adventures about cyborgs, artilects, and the future of the human race, you’ll love The Artilect War series!



 

With round-the-clock drugs, games, and eros parlors to entertain them and virtual weather to sustain them, humans live inside a global network of domed cities known collectively as the Enclosure. Having poisoned the biosphere, we’ve had to close ourselves off from the Earth. The cities of the Enclosure are scattered around the globe on the land and sea, and are connected by a web of travel tubes, so no one needs to risk exposure. Health Patrollers police the boundaries of the Enclosure to keep the mutants and pollution out.

Phoenix Marshall decodes satellite images for a living. He has spent all 30 years of his life in Oregon City, afloat on the Pacific Ocean. He busies himself with work and various forms of recreation to keep boredom at bay. One morning he opens his door to find Teeg Passio. Teeg is the same age as Phoenix, but she’s different; she’s menacingly and enticingly wild. She grew up on the outside. Her mother oversaw the recycling of the old cities, and her father helped design the Enclosure. Teeg works maintenance, which allows her to travel outside the walls. When she introduces Phoenix to her crew, he is drawn into a high-tech conspiracy that may threaten everything he understands. Are humans really better off within the Enclosure? Is the Earth? Are Health Patrollers keeping us safe or just keeping us in?

Teeg seduces Phoenix out of his orderly life, enlisting him in a secret, political, and sexual rebellion. Teeg and her co-conspirators, part mystics, part tech-wizards, dream of a life embedded in nature. Then one day, during a closely monitored repair mission on the outside, a typhoon offers the rebels a chance to escape the Enclosure and test their utopian dreams in the wilds.

In a post-apocalyptic world full of war, inequality, and corruption, one young man may have the power to change everything.

In the year 2033, what began as a breakthrough in understanding the human genome became the end of civilization. Decades later, Eibmoz Corporation establishes Habitats in low radiation zones in an attempt to revive society, installing a totalitarian regime in the process. But the Corporation only allows the pure—those unaffected by mutation—inside. Everyone else must join one of the warring factions in the decaying wastelands outside the Habitat’s walls.

When the Corporation launches a new augmented soldier program, sabotage by an unknown enemy destroys the experiment and delivers the one surviving specimen—a young man—into the Decay. Without any memory of his origins, identity, or purpose, the struggle of drone No. 1613 begins. Caught in the middle of the Decay’s volatile geopolitical landscape and perplexed by his surfacing abilities, he must embark across treacherous territory, where his search for answers may endanger everything he holds dear.

Praise for Primary Anomaly

 

The pacing is outstanding, the story is filled with effective action, and the author’s description and world-building is commendable. Post-apocalyptic fiction fans will find this an intriguing start to what could be an excellent series.

—BlueInk Review

 

Primary Anomaly is a sci-fi blend of military and social commentary wound into the form of a fable that holds messages and meaning not only for mankind which possibly teeters on its last legs, but for readers interested in the price of survival and the ultimate meaning of remaining human in the aftermath of a catastrophically changed society.

—D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

 

Primary Anomaly serves as a strong introduction to the world of Fables of Nevertime, with interesting world-building, character-driven action, and secrets left to discover.

—Clarion Review

 

Primary Anomaly is an exciting story with a great science fiction setting and well-written characters.

—Scott Cahan, Readers' Favorite
