Featured Book – Green – A Sci-Fi Novel – The Cover Notes

I was fascinated by the philosophical idea of what would a mind be like if it was completely cut off from the universe – i.e. it had no senses. What thoughts, sensations, concepts and dreams would it have. I liked the idea of infinity within as well as infinity without.

I decided to write a novel around that idea.

I then envisaged a futuristic society suffering an environmental catastrophe with a Green Political group that has split with a political group and an underground terrorist group with an extremist wing – a group who believe the world would be better off without people.

I brought it all together in this book. Here is the cover notes:

A Sci-fi novel set in the future. Elspin is born without a nervous system; a brain with no connection to the world. She is locked within her dreams. She should have withered into nothing but against all the odds she prospered. Politicians and Business-people are at each others throats. The world is in crisis. The Greens are split into factions. Passions are explosive. They find a way of contacting Elspin. What happens when universes clash? Will the world survive?

Sci-fi – Green – a revolutionary Sci-fi novel – some reviews! See what other people think.

Wow! This is an intelligent, absorbing, easily read, riproaring, sexy adventure set mostly on a rapidly disintegrating dystopian ( only slightly) future Earth. We experience events through the eyes and emotions of global government leaders, quarreling moderate and extreme eco resistance and eco warrior groups, police investigators, ruthless heads of industrial megalopoli … and as a parallel story; the distressed lives of two loving parents of a deaf, blind, mute, ‘locked in’ immobile baby: Elspin. Weaving in and out of the story’s periphery is a quiet obstetrician neurologist who discovers Elspin’s disconnected brain is a unique, hugely complex, universe within itself where Elspin has created herself as green amorphous light-being capable of communicating with the outside world. Have I given too much away? I think not. OK – besides being a planet on the verge of eating and s***ting itself into oblivion – the world is a multiracial melting pot where race, age and gender have ceased being issues that matter. There are much bigger issues at stake. How will the emerging supermind of Elspin and the creaking old World intersect? Dammit – this book stops too soon. Or is this Part 1? This book would appeal to any reader, but sci fi readers would revel in it – Sagan’s ‘Contact’ is just one that springs to mind.

Harrowing, timely and thrilling. An astute observation, written as fiction, into the potentially disastrous environmental impact of our present way of treating the planet. Set in the future, abounding in wonderful gizmos, women presidents, and disaffected terrorists it is both a philosophical text and a detective novel.

What a breath of fresh air, a new science fiction writer. I approached this with some trepidation as I’ve been let down before with unknown writers but I knew from the first couple of pages this was different. Opher’s style was so refreshing his storytelling held my attention from moment I started reading. The way he developed the story and the characters in it revealed great maturity for a new writer. I can recommend this to anyone who may be a little hesitant in trying something new.

Format: Paperback

I’m not normally that enthused to read Sci-Fi books, but, having read other books by Opher – In Search of Captain Beefheart and Ebola in the Garden of Eden, I decided to give this a go. I was pleased and surprised how engrossed I became, and am sure fans of Sci-Fi will greatly enjoy it, too.
Format: Paperback

I loved this book, very much of today’s zeitgeist. The author has a very individual style of writing that sweeps you right into his world.

A great clever read. very thought provoking. Another good book from this new and prodigious writer. I look forward to the next book.
