WINNER, 2013 BLACK&WRITE! INDIGENOUS WRITING FELLOWSHIP
WINNER, 2014 AUREALIS AWARDS, KRIS HEMBURY ENCOURAGEMENT AWARD
After conducting welding repairs on the outer hull of a space vessel, token human and lowly engineer Milton Lance returns to a silent, gloomy interior. The crew are dead, and the only survivor he can find is an annoying, pointy-eared simian.
When a mysterious gun-toting woman rescues the stranded pair, an unlikely trio is formed. But escaping the ship is the easy part, for Milton discovers he is not an ordinary human at all, but a saviour of worlds. Rift Breaker is a sci-fi action adventure driven by distinctive characters, and explores themes of alienation, identity and independence.
