Fata Morgana

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
Fata Morgana - the epic novel of love and duty at war across the reach of time.

At the height of the air war in Europe, Captain Joe Farley and the baseball-loving, wisecracking crew of the B-17 Flying Fortress Fata Morgana are in the middle of a harrowing bombing mission over East Germany when everything goes sideways. The bombs are still falling and flak is still exploding all around the 20-ton bomber as it is knocked like a bathtub duck into another world.

Suddenly stranded with the final outcasts of a desolated world, Captain Farley navigates a maze of treachery and wonder - and finds a love seemingly decreed by fate - as his bomber becomes a pawn in a centuries-old conflict between remnants of advanced but decaying civilizations. Caught among these bitter enemies, a vast power that has brought them here for its own purposes, and a terrifying living weapon bent on their destruction, the crew must use every bit of their formidable inventiveness and courage to survive.

"With Fata Morgana, Steven Boyett and Ken Mitchroney have created a work that defies categorization, unless that category is "engrossing, brilliant story-telling." They breathe life into the past and the future, in a book that manages to be both thought-provoking and thrilling. I loved it!" -Jan Burke, New York Times best-selling author of Bones and The Messenger

"Gripping adventure stuff: a perfect updating of a classic mode of science fictional storytelling, modernized without losing any of the charm of those old, glorious war novels."

-Cory Doctorow, New York Times best-selling author of Walkaway

"Action, adventure, cool speculative events, well-drawn characters, and an ending that sticks the landing: Fata Morgana pushes all my happy buttons." - John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author

"The twists, turns, and adrenaline never stop flowing in Fata Morgana. You will be transported to another world in more ways than one. Easily one of the hardest hitting science fiction books of 2017!" - Nicholas Sansbury Smith, USA Today bestselling author of Hell Divers

"So gripping and real it felt as if it were logged just minutes after landing. Fata Morgana is squarely in the ranks of the most classic and ingenious science fiction - a masterwork of purest cinema, relentlessly charming and inventive to the end." - Chris Sanders, director of Lilo & Stitch and How to Train Your Dragon

"A rip-roaring adventure full of heart, duty, and sacrifice, Fata Morgana is a perfect combination of historical-novel authenticity and space-opera splendor. I couldn't put it down, and the ending made me cry." - Brooke Johnson, author of the Chroniker City series

"Fata Morgana is genre-bending, epic, and wholly original: an unexpected, fascinating page-turner." - Lee Kelly, author of A Criminal Magic and City of Savages
