JAY ALLAN 

I currently live in New York City, and I’ve been reading science fiction and fantasy for just about as long as I’ve been reading. My tastes are fairly varied and eclectic, but I’d say favorites are military and dystopian science fiction and epic fantasy- usually a little bit gritty. I write a lot of science fiction with military themes, but also other SF and some fantasy as well. I like complex characters and lots of backstory and action. Honestly, I think world-building is the heart of science fiction and fantasy, and since that is what I’ve always been drawn to as a reader, that is what I write.

Diverse Characters Combat Oppression in Dystopian World

Editor’s Note: PRISMATIC is a Young-Adult dystopian with a uniquely diverse cast of teenagers standing up against oppression in the darkest of times. 

Book Description: Segregated into a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, seventeen-year-old Rain Hawkins is forced to endure the bleak conditions set upon her. When Rain discovers an organized resistance called The Freedom Front and learns that she, along with many other multiracial people, has special abilities, she sets out on a mission that will fill her life with wonder, romance, and the undying hope for a better world.

Author’s Inspiration: Years of traveling, studying WWII history, visiting historical sites, like concentration camps in Europe, and observing hatred and prejudice around the world, inspired me to write Prismatic. I wanted the message of hope and love surviving against all obstacles to be clear throughout. I also come from a very diverse family and was inspired by good friends and family around the globe. I wrote Prismatic with the intention of getting people to think about how we treat one another.

This Award Winning Dystopian Thriller is now 99c for Kindle

Editor’s Note:  Winner of The Los Angeles Book Festival Best Young Adult novel 2014, DONOR 23 keeps you on the edge of your seat. This page turner is a fast and exciting read!

Book Description: Living in a totalitarian society called the Alliance, seventeen year old Joan has been bred to donate her organs. She has lived under the harsh rules of the forced donor system of entire life. But when Joan is told her next donation will be her heart, she must flee and become one of the hunted in order to fight for her life. 

Author’s Inspiration: Frankly, the topic of the book was heavily influenced by my extensive experience as a lawyer representing the indigent. I sought to use the tale to address issues that impact us as individuals in this world–namely, issues that I encountered through my years as an attorney working for non-profits: themes of right and wrong, redemption, and societal devaluation of the individual.

Editor’s Note: For those looking for an adult dystopian series, this character driven saga IN DREAMS is for you!

Book Description: In Dreams is an immersing epistolary tragedy about society, technology and the human heart. Told through the recorded logs of an immigrant new to the ‘city of paradise,’ this adventure explores a future where mankind has made incredible technological advances, but one in which human nature has not changed one bit. In Dreams is a vivid ride that you’re not going to want to miss, and the riveting first chapter in the series of The Citizens of Oblivion.

Author’s Inspiration: After living in Japan for over a decade, writing/directing eight short films, producing a film festival, learning what it is like to be the outsider, and making friends with people from around the globe, I had a tale brewing within me. An epic saga based on many of my experiences. A tale that traversed a multicultural arcological city, and a journey through all of its spanning levels where the protagonist learned more about himself and the secrets of the world he lived in. In Dreams is the first chapter in that journey.

Magical Young Adult Fantasy for Kindle

Editor’s Note:  EDEN AT THE EDGE OF MIDNIGHT is full of imagination and great characters, including Sammy who leaves the normal world and steps into a realm full of magic and mystery.

Book Description:  All good stories have a hero. “The One” who arrives to save the realm from darkness and evil. But what if the wrong person takes their place by accident? Uses the magic portal destined for “The One” and locks them out of the realm in the process? That’s a touchy subject for Sammy Ellis who’s woken to find herself in a forest of giant, glowing mushrooms. Eden at the Edge of Midnight is the first book in a young-adult dystopian fantasy series (The Vara Volumes.)

Author’s Inspiration: The extended universes of Star Wars, Marvel and DC comics. I love back-stories, sub plots, histories and character origins. Stuff I can geek out on. This book is full of that stuff and the sort of story I’d always wanted to read as a teen.

Check out this Techno Thriller set in a Dystopian World

Editor’s Note: ARTIFICIAL EVIL is a post apocalyptic, dystopian thrill-ride. Book 1 of an on-going series.

Book DescriptionIn 2153, only the dome city of City Earth remains after a planet wide apocalypse. Gerry Cardle, the algorithm designer of the death lottery inexplicably finds his numbers are up. He has just seven days to live. And worse: a creator of malicious artificial intelligences threatens to destroy the city and all those within it. Everything Gerry had been told was a lie. Now he has to face the truth and sacrifice everything he loves to save the city.

Author’s Inspiration: Being a fan of cyberpunk and films like The Matrix as well as post-apocalytpic stories I wanted to merge the idea of technology, survival and dystopian societies presented as utopias. Something that when you like beneath the surface you see the truth. There’s a lot of struggle here and I explore the very essence of what it means to be human and how important freedom is. I tied that into a fast-paced thriller as I’ve always enjoyed the sense of fun and adventure of those genres.

Book Description:  Mick wakes up in an escape pod that’s losing power fast. Somehow, he’s been flung far into the future. He finds Sera, a hardened space pirate on her way to Utopia. But the Force of Darkness wants everyone dead.

I wanted to make a story about a guy who is lost and wants his family back, only he’s no longer in the same spacetime anymore. He’s got a lot of regret, and sees the technology of the future, which may have time-jumping, as a possible way home. But lust and the horrible state of humanity plague his quest home, and along the way, he must decide between a virtual heaven and a real shot at redoing one single life. This book treads a lot of questions I love to think about.
