Born in Space

Jeremy Clift

A ROLLER-COASTER RIDE TO THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE

A RUTHLESS MINING CORPORATION AND THE LONE MOTHER WHO STANDS IN THEIR WAY

When Teagan Ward claims seven test-tube babies, conceived aboard a space habitat as an experiment to populate the stars, are her children, she triggers a fight that consumes all those she loves.


"Born in Space" chronicles a gripping tale of sacrifice, romance, and redemption. As life on Earth crumbles and the rich seek sanctuary in rotating space habitats, desire and ambition collide as a greedy billionaire mining boss and his scheming doctor seek to exploit the mineral-rich asteroids.


The seven children become enmeshed in the battle for interstellar resources, including an ancient crystal that holds the key to unlocking the universe's mysteries and buying the release of their fugitive mother. As alliances shift and betrayals unfold, the fate of worlds hangs in the balance. In the tradition of Ray Bradbury and William Gibson, "Born in Space: " is an engrossing journey into the depths of space and the human spirit. For fans of "Interstellar" and "2001: A Space Odyssey," this speculative fiction gem by Jeremy Clift promises an immersive experience.

AN ODE TO THE WONDEROUS BEAUTY OF LIFE

In the wake of the Great Unraveling, Earth is crumbling. Lawlessness and conflict over resources run rampant as the planet struggles to survive. And while the rich flee to their orbiting space habitats, others must fight for their chance at refuge, no matter the cost.

As corporations and governments plunder the riches of the stars, leaving a trail of space debris and pollution in their wake, an ambitious doctor seeks the key to creating life beyond Earth. But his mission to birth genetically engineered humans capable of surviving in the harsh conditions of space will change the universe in ways that no one could foresee.

And there's things in the universe far older and more powerful than humankind ...

Praise for this book

Praise from around the world:


"Jeremy Clift has crafted an epic science fiction novel which takes cues from today's concerns - on the impact of AI, synthetic biology, and the quest to become a multi planetary species - and reimagines a troubled future for mankind where current divides are turbocharged. Besides being a superb writer, Clift is a fantastic world-builder." -- Vasuki Shastry, United States.


"This book is an easy read with a great peppering of human interaction, machine learning, and scientific problems that will need to be solved as human life expands beyond Earth's surface. A great read!" -- John Brenneman, United States.


"Funny, Factual, Futuristic, & Fascinating: A science fiction novel on the next likely frontier, not so far in the distant future but just 44 years from now in a story that starts in 2068. Most acclaimed Sci-fi bestsellers have imagined technologies unimaginable at the time of writing, and they have been mind-stimulating. The difference with 'Born in Space: Unlocking Destiny' is that looking at where present-day science stands, the author's forecasts look feasible in our foreseeable future, which makes you either joyful or fearful depending on which side of the glass half full versus half empty divide you are on."-- Uday Khandeparkar, India.


"Watch out, science fiction writers, a huge new talent has arrived. Compelling and ingenious, this fast-paced and epic tale has fresh ideas and twists galore." -- John Fullerton, United Kingdom.


"As a fan of modern science fiction, I found myself engrossed by how the novel seamlessly weaves together advanced robotics and thrilling space escapades while staying true to the emotional and philosophical essence that defines this genre. A must read for those who value storytelling intertwined with high-stakes cosmic thrillers." - Dana SF, France.
