Description of Tearing the Sky

360,000 years into the future, human beings become a civilization of knowledge, equality among Organics and Sentients, and mastery over galactic matter and energy. Yet Stanford student Kale Eritrus can't choose a major, obsesses about solitary hobbies, and fumbles through conversations with the opposite sex. However, his universe comes to a sudden halt when he discovers that their ultimate civilization is about to be shattered by the final act of the Big Bang: the Big Crunch. With nothing to hold him back, Kale takes the two women he can't choose between on an expedition to find out what's going on. What they uncover on their galaxies-spanning adventure will fundamentally alter what it means to be human, and the depths to which they will descend for what they know in their bones is right.

About the Author Jamil Moledina

From his earliest memories Jamil Moledina has possessed an unquenchable thirst for science fiction. Moledina devoured classic science fiction during his youth and counts Isaac Asimov's Foundation and Frank Herbert's Dune among the two greatest books he has ever received. He wrote Tearing the Sky in effort to fill one of many gaps between the picture of our universe as tentatively understood by science, and the one presented in fiction. In this universe, Moledina served for several years as the Executive Director of the Game Developers Conference, the world's largest professionals-only event in the game industry, where he managed the financial and creative direction of the multi-million dollar show. Prior to that, he was Editor-in-Chief of Game Developer magazine, the leading B2B publication in the game space. Moledina is on the Board of Directors for the International Game Developers Association, as well as various game industry juries and advisory boards, including GamesBeat. He currently signs and manages independent games for Electronic Arts and lives in San Francisco.

Advance praise for Tearing The Sky

"Tearing the Sky has all the scope of Asimov, the technical depth of Bear, and a take on the human, and non-human, spirit that is uniquely his own."

- Jesse Alexander, writer & executive producer of Lost, Heroes, and Alias

"Stimulating and provocative, writing for both sides of one's mind, Moledina spins far-flung future history like a shimmering spider web in the sun."

- John Gaeta, special effects supervisor of The Matrix films

"When you read the first chapter of Tearing the Sky, you find yourself consumed; by the elegance of it's settings, by the needs of it's vividly identifiable characters, and by the wondrous belief that Jamil Moledina might just actually pull off a story that seems so impossibly grand in scope. When you read the last chapter, he has done so, and you find yourself in awe."

- Christian Gossett, creator of The Red Star graphic novel series

"I am one of the lucky few who has had a chance to read Tearing the Sky and I can tell you it is a visionary work, especially for a first time (but not the last time!) author. Jamil has crafted a unique story that is epic in scope, but intimate in approach."

- Mark Long, creator of the Shrapnel and Blacklight graphic novels and games

"A fun, thought-provoking distant future on the brink of apocalypse, Moledina's Tearing the Sky tickles the neurons with this holy war for the fate of the universe."

- Nick Sagan, author of Idlewild, Edenborn, and Everfree

"Tearing the Sky is a great read full of engaging characters, and rollicking action, but where it really shines is in tackling deeper themes seldom approached in space operas. I highly recommend it."

- Greg Zeschuk, co-executive producer of the Mass Effect game series
