From Glen Donaldson on Goodreads:

Enjoyed? I positively feasted on this book!

It opened a door to a behive-world of thoughty concepts and high-res imagination the likes of which I have rarely seen. The ‘frolicksome’ character of Jannine deserved a book all on her own! You really have dynamited the vault and poured out the treasure with this one Stuart.

From Cary Grossman on Goodreads:

Rated it 5 Stars. It was amazing.

The trick to writing a good science fiction novel set in the future is to avoid getting so lost in describing how civilization arrived at the present point in your world’s history that the actual story and character development take a secondary role to countless pages of backwriting and detailing future gadgetry and technology. Happily, that is not the case here.

In Blood Red Dust, Stuart Aken skillfully creates a sobering view of Earth’s last days, as reported by the first colonists of Mars. His Orwellian description of an environmentally uninhabitable Earth sounds chillingly prophetic and Aken puts the blame precisely where it belongs, on the greed and short-term sight of industry and big business. Humanity’s hope of restarting civilization is threatened by religious zealotry and terrorism, and a bold, young group of “chosen” face life in an alien environment unhampered by racism, theology, inequality, or sexual inhibition. But personal relationships, even in space, are not always easy, and human behavior is still reasonably predictable.

Simply put, I enjoyed the hell out of this book.

And, you can buy the book either from your local Amazon site by clicking here, or direct from the publisher by clicking here.

Or, if you’re in the area on Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th November, you can visit Fantasticon 2016, in the Guildhall, Hull, and have your copy signed by the author! I’ll be present, with lots of other authors and science fiction and fantasy fans, for both days and I’d love to see you there.

      Thanks, Noelle. I’m pretty pleased! Not watching the series; I don’t have access to National Geographic, but anything by Nat Geo is always worth considering.
