A first look Future Winds, sounds like a standard sci-fi movie, story, or book, but indie author of this year’s Fear Award winning novel, Emotive, Kevin Laymon takes it to a wholly different place with his own personal style.
The official synopsis describes the novel as:
“Set in a science fiction setting with elements of twisted horror, Future Winds is a strange yet wondrous tale of species self-preservation and the all-out moral cost of survival. Forced to leave earth, humanity discovers a planet capable of supporting life and hatches an audacious plan that will warp them across the universe to settle and begin anew. There is a darkness that resides below the planet’s surface, but with no option to turn back, humanity must find a way forward.”
Laymon, himself, says, “I think that for a Science Fiction/ Horror mashup to work well, it has to be painted with a very visual brush. Be it film or words, you’ve gotta be able to see these places in your head when you go to sleep at night. It’s one part tapping into curiosity and two parts fear. World building is something that the late H.R. Giger did well and he’s always been one of my creative inspirations.”
Laymon’s brush is skillful and highly capable and it’s no wonder that the book was also listed as a finalist in this year’s Fear Awards. It’s available now in digital and paperback on Amazon and would be a perfect gift for fans of science fiction and horror.
