)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Prison Planet by Craig Swartz. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 hardback edition with jacket in the science fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/theprisonplanet was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
A book, thought lost to antiquity, mysteriously reappears and sets a family on the path to unimaginable wealth and power and an ever-ascending ambition to rule the world. Eventually they become the Guardians of the Earth and are the only ones who know of the truth of the Universe and Earth’s destiny. Fate, however, plays its hand and disrupts the grand plan and now the true owners of the Book have decided to reclaim their property, which may leave Earth’s future hanging in the balance.
The task will fall to several unconnected groups and individuals: the Teller family consisting of Marlo, Vince and their son Kyle, who is autistic; David Weatheridge, a down and out British journalist and noted cynic; a trio of otherworldly auditors, and a small cast of others. In three days time, the unconnected become connected as they learn about aliens, autism, conspiracy, fear, greed, history, love, politics, reincarnation, spiritualism and war.
They say the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. This is the story of their first step.
353 pages in length, The Prison Planet is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the science fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Prison Planet meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $30.95.
Additionally, The Prison Planet can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
