This month science fiction author A. Lee Martinez opens up a world of possibilities with Chasing the Moon. RT reviewer Donna M. Carter said, “Readers who like their science fiction on the wacky, mind-bending side, à la Douglas Adams, are sure to love this story that examines our place in the cosmos and our need to understand even the most inexplicable things.” Today, the author shares a behind the scenes look at the inspiration for this unusual tale.
Chasing the Moon is a story you aren't meant to understand. It's about a universe too large and inscrutable to comprehend, where nothing is certain and everything our protagonists do just might be (at best) pointless or (at worst) dangerous. In short, it's a story about being human. Except with monsters.
