LAS VEGAS, NV – A couple of years ago, Joshua Dorne began long dreamed journey to becoming a professional science fiction and fantasy writer and author. And now, on the brink of completing and publishing his very first full length science fiction novel, he is at the cusp of obtaining his dream. The Slipstream Effect, the forthcoming Sci-Fi novel, due out quarter one of 2012, will endeavor to bring together the always coupled, but still separate genres of science fiction and fantasy. The book itself follows the journey of a group of fictional characters, set in a near future earth. The world has been ravaged by plague, forcing the remains of humanity into “bubble” cities, in constant fear of another outbreak. Meanwhile, the creatures of myth and legend exist, and since time immemorial have vied for control and influence over the human race. Now the war for control over earth moves from the shadows and into the light, and soon the entire earth will be covered in the crazed chaos of a war that will shake humanity to its core.
The story follows Pelith, a young being caught between two worlds and in search for answers to his mysterious origins. Along his journey he must battle through the hectic near war climate of his legendary home world, a crippling inner demon constantly threatening to consume him, and discover why he is suddenly the target of human and mythical beast alike. As the story unfolds he uncovers a plot that could determine the future of the earth itself.
“The great continent of Atlantis spread out before her. Bouts of fire spewed from ever expanding crack and crevices that spider webbed through the grand city and further into the enormous countryside. Even now, huge sections of land were falling inward, down, deeper into the earth as it collapsed and died in a ring of fire.”
For years science fiction and fantasy stories have captured the minds of readers, viewers, and gamers alike. Some stories have pioneered the way for the current state of the genre, while others have simply dwelled within the contemporary. The Slipstream Effect changes things. As a science fiction book, it ushers in a new age of industry storytelling, combining the genre’s in a way that revolutionizes how the two styles come together, and how they can exist in the future. Readers will be enthralled, longing for more of the grand adventure and compelling story when the novel is released next year.
