Book 1. Space opera series. After the war with Earth, bioengineered humans scatter across the Backworlds. Competition is fierce and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to hoard his fortune by destroying his son. Cut off from family and friends, with little money, and even less knowledge of the worlds beyond his own, Craze heads into an uncertain future. Boarding the transport to Elstwhere, he vows to make his father regret this day.

Don't miss this new series!! Look out Farscape, new kid on the block!

I've read several stories by M Pax, and as usual, I wasn't disappointed with The Backworlds. Wow, what a fun and fascinating read! The characters are so varied and colorful yet believable, the otherworldly settings are described in such a way that you "see" them. Even the foul stench of the ale that Craze, the main character, detests seemed to make my nose twitch! What a vivid imagination... and this author has the skill to make ME see it, too.

But it wasn't only the authors mastery of creating a believable universe that I enjoyed. The Story itself kept me glued to my Reader even when chores were calling my name. Predictable storylines bore me. But M Pax keeps surprising me with twists and turns I didn't see coming. What a fun romp through the backworlds with these feisty bio-engineered beings from a future time. OUR future, creations from the old "fabled Earth". Can't wait for the next in this series, Stopover At The Backworlds' Edge. Ha ha, in fact I just got it. :-)
