Mankind has abandoned a desolate Earth to live in space and prepares to take the next evolutionary step. Mathieu Bablet's award-winning sci-fi epic - NOW SHIPPING!

On the most habitable regions of Titan, mankind intends to write their own new “Genesis.”

Spanning a period of several millennia, this science fiction epic begins after mankind has abandoned earth to live in space stations run by corporate governments. After an introductory sequence amidst the ruins of Earth as it is consumed by the sun, it leaps from our desolated planet into a space-faring future, where life is good and all needs are met by the Tianzhu corporation. But that longevity isn’t enough, and science is ready to use its genetic knowledge to breed the next generation of humans for colonization.

Far from being just another science fiction adventure, author Mathieu Bablet uses this scenario to observe and comment on many core qualities that mankind can’t seem to outgrow: consumerism, jealousy, distrust, entitlement, ambition, curiosity, and – ultimately – violence.

Through a cinematic visual style and dramatic pacing, this book proves to be much weightier and thought-provoking than even its 220-page length would suggest.
