Editorial Reviews

Jeff Davis
I'm not one much for science fiction... but I loved this book! It's more of a conspiracy theory and international thriller set in a future setting than the usual Sci-Fi. The characters were believable and the the pace of the story were great. So many twists and turns to the story and such an unexpected ending. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves a fast-paced action story! I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
June Arnold
If you enjoy science fiction - you need to order your copy of this book (OASIS - Escape from Earth)! I found myself surprised to have my attention captured by the characters in this novel. It was a great read and reminiscent of the writings of Robert Heinlein. I can't wait for the second book to be ready!
Totila Grandbergs
Loved OASIS - Escape from Earth, Bo. Intriguing plot with lots of twists and turns, great character development, world-class terrorists, conspiracies, romance; what more could a person want? Needs to be made into a movie.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

IVIS BO DAVIS grew up on a potato farm outside the tiny town of Filer in southern Idaho, which may well have fueled his thirst for adventure since little excitement seemed to happen there. A veteran of the Viet Nam conflict, he discovered more adventure than he really wanted during the war and the social unrest that followed. Now he writes science fiction to explore the universe without actually giving unfriendly strangers the opportunity to shoot at him. Bo lives in Garland, Texas, USA, with his wonderful wife, Elaine, and a beautiful blue-eyed beauty in the form of a snow white cat named Lenny.
