Robinson Crusoe 1,000,000 A.D.
Library Journal, in their 2003 review of the print edition, offered warm praise for this "fresh, original new approach to a timeless classic" and recommended it for large libraries everywhere. In its initial appearance as an e-book at Fictionwise, this novel sold thousands of copies and garnered over 400 reviews, almost all positive, most of them raves. (Synopsis follows at end below.)It's a soaring, imaginative science fiction novel in a well-established, long-standing tradition (called Robinsonades, typically about shipwrecked, marooned adventurers) whose science fiction subset alone includes the following: Robinson Crusoe on Mars (film 1964); The Island of Dr. Moreau (novel H.G. Wells, 1896; films 1977, 1996); Enemy Mine (film 1985); Lord of the Flies (novel, 1953 Nobel Laureate William Golding; film 1963); and most recently Andy Weir's 2011 self-published SF novel The Martian, which became a successful major Hollywood film in 2014. There will be many more in the future-maybe even a film based on Robinson Crusoe 1,000,000 A.D.Note: the original Robinson Crusoe 1719 novel by Daniel Defoe is NOT a children's story. Although it has been borrowed, revised, and sanitized-made into Disney fuzzy bunny cartoons, abridged for children's editions-Daniel Defoe wrote a dark, violent, bloody novel about murder, betrayal, slavery, and cannibal feasts. The website (clocktowerbooks) cites at least one academic expert on this, plus info on pacing, point of view, homages, characters names, and many other fascinating topics. BRIEF SYNOPSIS: A million years into a totally unexpected future, our hero is the last man on Earth. Nobody has ever been so alone. Alex Kirk awakens a million years from now, utterly alone and in terrible danger on a brave new Earth. Humankind has been extinct for eons, and Alex Kirk is at best an accident, an afterthought in an uncaring universe filled with dreadful secrets. This is more than a purely entertaining DarkSF novel in the rich tradition of Blade Run
