Description

"Pearson is the possessor of an extraordinary imagination that brilliantly assaults every variant of the sci-fi genre. His writing is vivid, urban and unflinching in its descriptions, taking the reader on a breathtaking journey through Saturn's rings, outer world 'constructs', altered perceptions and a glorious African landscape smouldering with sexual heat and the odour of violence. This is hard-hitting story telling with full-on language and a brutally splendid plot twist, which, if you make it to the end, will leave you crossing your legs!" SURREY LIFE magazine (UK) Sep 2015 (p. 109), Juliette Foster______'The dry thing behind her eyes made her stand up; it stooped, collected the child into its mother's arms and stepped out into space.'We pick up the story of Milla Carter after the destruction of the Body Holiday Foundation. She has ripped down the poisoned tree but the parasite still lives, and the infection is worse than anyone could possibly imagine. It is no longer just Carter fighting for survival and the forces arrayed against her are more powerful than ever before.From a ledge 173 floors above the Moscow streets to New York, the asteroid belt and beyond, Soul's Asylum establishes Derek E Pearson as one of the most prolific imaginations in the science fiction arena.
'Look at it, my first sight of alien life and it's infesting a chunk of murdered human meat."Where Pearson will take you is impossible to predict, strap in and enjoy the ride. The Body Holiday trilogy has concluded, Soul's Asylum begins a new epic tale in the same universe. We are no longer asking who dunnit but what - and why?'

About Derek E. Pearson

Derek E. Pearson is a prolific writer with two trilogies to his name, and other works in progress, since his debut in 2014. An art school graduate, Pearson is a witty, fun and unusual character in that he 'lives' his stories, hence the amazing output. In conversation he'll tell what it's like to merrily 'swim' in his extraordinary worlds alongside the highly-charged characters he creates and adores.
