Its skeleton crew – five kids and three adults – rely on one another to survive. Forced together by circumstance, the crew of the Nelson lives the tensions, joys, heartbreak, and humour of family life….deep in outer space.
STAR PRESSED is about family; about sustaining a surrogate family in an unfair universe.
This is probably my most ambitious book to date. It’s at once a sprawling space opera in the spirt of Star Wars or Firefly and an intimate family portrait as seen on Party Of Five or Lost In Space. It’s love letter to science fiction, and an examination of growing up in an uncertain world. —Jeff
