Author J J Perry has released his new a non-fantasy, science fiction epic “REAP 23” that sweeps readers up on a journey through space and time spanning 9,000 years and centers on a future religious cult that honors dozens of astronauts who set out to find and populate planets several millennia in the past.

The Repopulation, Expansion and Annexation Program (REAP) was designed to send one-way missions to 25 potentially habitable moons or planets within 5,000 light years of earth. After a bunker containing devices intended to receive messages from each of the missions is rediscovered despite being buried during an ice age, explorers learn that at least one mission, REAP 23, was successful.

Chronicling the four REAP 23 couples’ experiences undergoing ultra-hibernation and facing the chance they will arrive at a destination unsuitable for habitation after their long journey, “REAP 23” details the stresses and conflicts of the crew at both ends of its millennia-long trip as well as the discovery of their message and attempt to reconnect with humanity.
