Blind Author Announces Double Promotion of Unique Sci Fi Series
This month, BearManor Media publications is plugging their Beta-Earth Chronicles by promoting two of the volumes simultaneously. On August 1, the fourth volume in Wesley Britton’s inventive series, A Throne for an Alien, was published. At the same time, last year’s debut novel, The Blind Alien, was made available for 99 cents.
Author Wesley Britton, blind due to a genetic disease, says, “The original concept came to me when I asked one question. What would happen to an ordinary man who is dragged to an alternate universe and blinded in the capture? How can anyone cope with a parallel earth where they don’t understand a single word they hear while not being able to see anything or anyone they encounter?”
The depth of the stories is perhaps best summarized by Raymond Benson, author of seven official James Bond novels. “The Blind Alien is a story with a highly original concept, fascinating characters, and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don’t let the sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you — this is a compelling and contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and social classes.” “It’s a story,” Tosin Coker, the U.K.’s first black female SF novelist adds, “of rebellion, politics, love, science, and religion . . . that’s both entertaining and very thought provoking.”
“Judging from all the reviews at Amazon and Goodreads,” Britton says, “readers are especially intrigued by both the style and substance of the books, especially the language and grammar that keep reminding readers they’re on a completely different planet.”
To date, the series includes The Blind Alien, The Blood of Balnakin, When War Returns, and now A Throne for an Alien. Book five, The Third Earth, is currently in production. “The sixth book is about 110 pages done,” Britton says. “It will all end here on our earth, but expect major surprises regarding our future.”
