A new Kickstarter project has been launched to support the independent publication of Primae Noctis, a hard science fiction novel by Sydney-based author, Aimery Thomas.
Funding from the project will be used principally for the hire of an independent editor to prepare the 800-page novel for publication as an e-book.
Primae Noctis is set 60 years after the Calamity, a crisis of war, disease, famine, and sudden ecological shift that leads to the deaths of more than 99% of the world's 13.6 billion inhabitants. With the guidance of the Archonae, the survivors have formed an idyllic new society of secure and protected cities designed to elevate humanity to it's full potential and to prevent the problems of the past from recurring. However, not everyone is content with life in the new utopia.
As proof-of-concept for his crowdfunding effort, Aimery has also put the first original edit 80 pages of the novel online for free via a link at the site. The Kickstarter project for Primae Noctis can be found here: http://kck.st/M9vhX2
