THE DAZZLING DEBUT SCI-FI NOVEL FROM FORMER MLB PLAYER RICHIE SHAFFER

THE EIGHT OF EARTH are the only humans left in existence.

They were birthed from artificial wombs, a century after the extinction of mankind, on a world far from Earth, doomed to be the last of their race and surrounded by the alien citizens of the planet.

As Leo attempts to save the human race from its second and final extinction, he stumbles upon a mysterious Ancient vault that kickstarts a chain of events that will change the course of history.

Now, all Eight lives begin to spiral out of control as they encounter: century-old secrets, a debt owed to a ruthless crime lord, an incurable disease, a deadly jungle, the soul-crushing guilt of death, and a battle for one man’s mind.

They’re humanity’s second chance… but they have to survive Valenia first.

DESCRIPTION:

“A smart, rich country noir” from the acclaimed author Kentucky Straight and The Good Brother (Stewart O’Nan, bestselling author of Henry, Himself).

Chris Offutt is an outstanding literary talent, whose work has been called “lean and brilliant” (The New York Times Book Review) and compared by reviewers to Tobias Wolff, Ernest Hemingway, and Raymond Carver. He’s been awarded the Whiting Writers Award for Fiction/Nonfiction and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Fiction Award, among numerous other honors. His first work of fiction in nearly two decades, Country Dark is a taut, compelling novel set in rural Kentucky from the Korean War to 1970.

Tucker, a young veteran, returns from war to work for a bootlegger. He falls in love and starts a family, and while the Tuckers don’t have much, they have the love of their home and each other. But when his family is threatened, Tucker is pushed into violence, which changes everything. The story of people living off the land and by their wits in a backwoods Kentucky world of shine-runners and laborers whose social codes are every bit as nuanced as the British aristocracy, Country Dark is a novel that blends the best of Larry Brown and James M. Cain, with a noose tightening evermore around a man who just wants to protect those he loves. It reintroduces the vital and absolutely distinct voice of Chris Offutt, a voice we’ve been missing for years.

“[A] fine homage to a pocket of the country that’s as beautiful as it is prone to tragedy.”–The Wall Street Journal

“A pleasure all around.”–Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter’s Bone
