Everything is going as normal in the post-coronavirus world, until it suddenly isn’t. Skye Rider leaves Yellowknife carrying data that will form the biggest expose of her journalistic career; she doesn’t realize just how important that data is, or what it means to humanity. On the same plane is HAARP technician, Willis Roxton, who’s part of the very conspiracy Skye’s trying to uncover. When a solar anomaly sends their plane plummeting into the northern Canadian boreal forest, Skye, Willis and Suki, a young Cree boy, face certain death. Out of Abaddon follows the three, plus myriad other characters through the days and months following global-wide infrastructure collapse, and into the dystopia their world quickly becomes. Will they survive, and what will remain of society as we know it?
“The story is brilliantly written and once it gets going, rolls along with great action, details and characters. Amazing work!”
Frank Wolf, author of ‘Lines on a Map’
I began researching the science behind Out of Abaddon – the Long Journey Home, in 1995 after reading an article in the UTNE Reader about the Alaska HAARP Program, part of the Reagan administration’s Star Wars Program. The science is real, the possibilities are real. The fragile nature of our infrastructure and our cyber-dependency puts us all at risk when the system fails. The author has travelled extensively in the Canadian wilderness, in the very remote areas that are depicted in the story.
