The second volume in the series, Soul's Asylum - Star Weaver, is a 2016 Indies BOOK AWARD FINALIST, SCIENCE FICTION.

THE SUN newspaper on the first volume in the series: " A weird, vivid and creepy book, not for the faint hearted. But it's originality and top writing make for a great read ****."

TV Presenter JULIETTE FOSTER "Pearson is the possessor of an extraordinary imagination that brilliantly assaults every variant of the sci-fi genre."

In this third volume, following the destruction of the Body Holiday Foundation, the extraordinary life story of telepath Milla Carter finally concludes.

Iapetus in Saturn's orbit: Antisoc Outer has been destroyed and now the intelligent gas creature, the Swarm, is tightening its grip on the solar system.

Iapetus Sector Manager 'The Padre' and his lover, Laura Bradley, are working with two super intelligent AIs in a desperate bid to find a way to stop the Swarm's relentless progress. If they fail their only hope is for everyone in Saturn's proximity to flee in a motley fleet of refugee spaceships.

Milla Carter and her friends know there is no escape from the cloud beast. Mankind's only hope is to destroy it before it snuffs OUT every soul on Earth. But there seems TO BE no defence against its immense power.

Review quote

TV Presenter, JULIETTE FOSTER: Pearson has transported his feisty heroine Milla Carter into even deadlier territory in The Swarm. This latest adventure, underpinned by black humour with new age philosophy and addictive brain-stretching science, once again reaffirms Pearson as a major literary talent.

About Derek E Pearson

Foreword Indies BOOK AWARD Finalist: 2018 GODS' Warrior (Fantasy) 2017 GODS' Fool (Fantasy) 2016 GODS' Enemy (Fantasy) 2016 Star Weaver (Science Fiction) Derek E Pearson is a UK-based author and illustrator with more than a dozen published novels in the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Since gaining his bachelor's degree from Norwich School of Art in the late 1970s, Pearson has mainly worked as a children's book illustrator, including titles such as Tulsi the Tiger. Since the late 1980s, Pearson has also worked in publishing and journalism, specialising in the dental industry with his online magazine Dental Review. Celluloid Peach, Pearson's latest novel, is a grand, romantic and adventuresome departure from his usual writings, but brings with it the dark twist familiar to fans of fantasy and sci-fi. Pearson says, "When someone dies it has to matter. You have to believe a life has been lost. An author learns to love the people he lives with in his mind. They become real."
