Overview

A galactic adventure rife with cultural relevance in today's political and social media driven climate, Space Hobos launches the reader into a plausible sci-fi drama and never drops out of orbit.

 

Trillions of dollars behind schedule, the government and sponsoring corporations scramble to find enough manpower to finish preparing Mars for imminent colonization. Current socio-economic challenges give them the perfect opportunity to capitalize upon. A potential workforce of 600,000 homeless is at their fingertips.They make themselves champions of the homeless, forcing upon them a permanent solution to their predicament.

 

For quite a while the future has been bleak for Holistic Henry and Cancer Carl and it isn't getting any better. As the government begins to round-up the homeless population for an involuntary mission to space, Henry and Carl attempt to evade capture, fleeing with acquaintances Junkie Julie, Castaway Connie and Bike Mike.  But their luck quickly runs out.

 

Exiled to Mars, thousands of hobos must stick together in their isolation.  What the rest of the world sees as opportunity for them, they see as a death sentence.  The people in charge have a deadline and don't care what they have to do to meet it.

 

When Henry learns that his estranged daughter, Lily, is terminally ill, he frantically searches for a way to return to home. Carl reveals an escape route but it will take a revolt by the hobos to make it happen. Henry and Connie orchestrate an uprising but the powers that be see the imminent threat and try to quash it before it can gain momentum.Will Henry and Carl survive not only the harsh living conditions of Mars but live long enough to see their revolution become a reality?

About the Author

Author of An Hour for Magic, Justin Fulkerson’s literary tastes turned from science fiction (Isaac Asimov) to horror (Stephen king, of course) at the innocent age of twelve years old. His outlook on life was forever changed by the experience and his mind suffered the consequences. The creatures and scenarios running through his imagination forced him to begin his first novels while still in high school. 

Twenty years later, An Hour for Magic arrived, consuming his every thought until the first 500 pages were transferred to paper. The next two in the series, Hollow be thy Name and An Hour for Maggie completed the tale. Finally, Hallowed Ground took Justin's mind into the realm of Zombie fiction. With several more novels in the works, Justin hopes that the world can survive long enough to enjoy the fruits of his imagination.
