Worlds Apart is a ground breaking work of science fiction that follows celebrity astronaut, Fergus Faraday, on his latest journey to the moon when he unexpectedly vanishes. Finding himself plunged deep in the Amazon rainforest the astronaut’s appearance has a transformative effect on a local tribal community but to nearby villagers he is treated as insane. Saved by a gold prospector and revived with the care of a local woman he starts to question his own existence and his role in the vastness of the Cosmos.
“My purpose was to explore the meaning of celebrity and identity within the context of space travel and the wonders of the earth and the universe,” says author Mica Jay.
As a freelance journalist for newspapers and magazines worldwide, Jay spent many years studying space travel as well as the lives and cultures of remote tribal communities.
In writing Worlds Apart, Jay’s goal was to bring her findings to life through a compelling story set against the backdrop of space travel and the universe.
Jay’s original style challenges the normal conventions of science fiction writing while keeping to the science surrounding space travel.
One of the book’s most innovative themes is in the use of dream sequences and interstellar black holes to link the lives of family and friends and show how they interact within the colourful backdrop of the Cosmos.
Worlds Apart has received positive reviews from well-renowned literary organizations, authors like the poet Laurie Lee and reviewers worldwide.
