One showed, in extraordinary detail, an exoplanet superimposed onto a blurry point in the constellation just below the three brilliant stars on Orion’s Belt. Lines of code littered one side of the screen. A photo of the desert in northwest Iraq looked like the red surface of Mars. And next to all of that, the vast screen boasted a floor-to-ceiling 3D poster, and the eight-based DNA genomic sequence, of Major Adam Jerome Armstrong. -- This had brought her into the highly covert programme gathering pace in the disused warehouse outside London. And there, she was privy to what it was all about: the discovery of signals emanating from an Earth-like planet located in the constellation Orion. She had discovered what was sending them, and to whom, and why. -- Suddenly, Dan’s phone pinged. Of all things, an app – one that MI5 hadn’t deleted – of a night sky map. Distracted, he saw the eight most brilliant stars of the constellation light up the little screen. Then he saw a flash of blinding light. He leapt to his feet, pointed up, and from the depths of his soul screamed out one word: “Orion!”

Andy Oppenheimer | Science-Fiction Novelist

“Fields of Orion was inspired by the bomb disposal operators and army veterans I’ve had the honour to know and work alongside. I have combined this amazing experience with a totally different early life in the 1980s working on a futuristic science project along with my knowledge of terrorism and a passion for space, Greek legend, and the music and imagery of David Bowie. With all these disparate influences, I wrote Fields of Orion. And above all, it was written with love.”
