I’m seeking reviewers for my science fiction novel Do Not Go Gentle of 115k words. I know this is a big ask, and I’m willing to reciprocate the favour. Please PM me if you’re interested. Overview The novel is loosely based on the setting and characters of my short story Recovery, which won the 2013 science-fiction contest on Writingforums.org. It has developed greatly since then. This is primarily a mystery story which follows the main character’s efforts at seeking his former identity and the reason for his unexpected arrival. It touches on philosophical and religious issues, exploring how they impact the lives of individuals and the structure of society. The novel includes humorous and thought-provoking passages. Plot Summary The book opens with Richard, an apparently ordinary man from the 20th century, who wakes to find he has an artificial body and few memories. Initially assuming he’d been in an accident, he’s surprised to discover he has a synthetic body and his carers have no idea who he is. It’s the 22nd century and he gradually discovers a world which is far from the future he’d imagined. His existence is a problem to the authorities as he’s the exception to a law that can have no exceptions. As he seeks his former identity and the reason for his arrival, he finds friends and enemies. He also finds those who wish to use him and those who simply want him off their hands. Unfortunately, he can’t tell which category anyone fits into. Good ideas and bad ones present themselves as well as those that are half-baked. Finding a way to tell fact from fiction is another major issue. Ultimately, he realises many of his assumptions were wrong, he rationalises what he knows, and discovers the answers he sought were staring him in the face all along.
