“Our society is showing signs of enervation, fatigue, inward focus, and poverty of vision,” Johnson writes. “I hope to provide a transformative vision along with a good adventure story.”

Author William Crow Johnson weaves an exciting tale of planetary colonization adventure and escape from oppression in the first installment of his new science fiction trilogy, “Earth 2.0: Prison Planet” (published by iUniverse).

It’s the year 2442, and Alexander Khan, scion and board member of Khan International, Inc., and career military officer for Earth Central Government, is transported to Prison Planet for murdering his father’s killer.

Marooned on tech-suppressed Prison Planet, Khan nevertheless swears revenge on Nathan Fox, Director – Office of Technology Control, and the real man behind his father’s death, and swears to continue the multi-generational Khan family mission of freeing Earth’s people from the commissars by releasing Freedom Technology.

In his efforts to use the resources of Prison Planet to get back to Earth to accomplish these goals, Khan gets help from several groups that have developed on Prison Planet, plus another very unusual group, and understands that the price of failure is the death of those he has come to love..

“Our society is showing signs of enervation, fatigue, inward focus, and poverty of vision,” Johnson writes. “I hope to provide a transformative vision along with a good adventure story.”

Volume 2, “Earth 2.0: Arcadia,” is scheduled for release in September 2013.
