Eta Carinae, has suddenly begun to brighten in the sky and most astronomers think it’s a supernova. The elders think it’s something even more, and James has the not-so-unwelcome suspicion that everything he’s ever known is about to change forever.
Brian d’Eon’s comedy chops are on full display in this hilarious novella that mixes a first contact comedy with cultural clash, along with adventure, romance, and of course, the end of the world.
D’Eon lives with his wife and two cats in one of the world’s true Shangri-la’s: Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.
His writing pursuits have been forged largely in the fires of live theatre where, for thirty years, he has participated as an actor, director and playwright. Four of his stage plays have been produced locally and one in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He also produced more than a dozen original radio dramas plus radio adaptations of famous classical scripts like Oedipus Rex and Macbeth.
In recent years Brian has focused his attention more and more on fiction, and his short stories and poetry can be found in a variety of publications. Brian’s story Sun Dancer won the 2009 Okanagan short story contest. In 2011 his story Badlands won the fiction prize in the Kootenay Literary Competition.
Brian likes to write stories that are speculative or which, at least, have elements of magic realism in them. For more information about his projects, check his website: www.briandeon.com
