9781938821264: Spindown

For over a hundred and fifty years, the rarest and most valuable substance in the solar system has been mined from the only location where it exists in significant quantity: Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede. For all of this time, the remote mining outpost has been serviced by clone slaves who are drugged into mindlessness, and all of it has been monitored, controlled, and administered by the artificial intelligence known as Prinox.

But what happens when a failed rescue mission causes a small band of escaped clones to begin questioning their lives, their society, and their very existence? Hunted by deadly killing machines, confused and scared, these renegade slaves are about to find out―for better or worse―just what it means to be human.

About the Author:

George Wright Padgett has always had a passion for story-telling.

Born in Houston, Texas, he grew up consuming a steady diet of science fiction and comic books. His time is divided between being a husband and father of two, a jazz piano player, a graphic artist, and a playwright. With what time is left over, he writes science fiction, horror, and the occasional mystery while sitting on the sofa next to his mini dachshund, Jenny.

Review:

"Reminiscent of classics from authors such as Clarke, Heinlein, and Asimov, Spindown is hard science fiction at its best. Padgett's debut narrative is visual, visceral, and atmospheric in all the right places. Fantastic!"

- Jason Kristopher, author of The Dying of the Light Series

"Spindown is an excellent first book from new author George Wright Padgett. It's an action-orientated yet deeply human and touching story full of intriguing detail. I wanted to start reading it again the moment I'd finished it."
-H.C.H. Ritz, author of The Lightbringers

"Spindown is a sci-fi novel that has the feel of the classics. Padgett captures the mystery of the unknown and merges it with a firm grounding in hard science."
-Wayne Basta, author of The Aristeia Series

I very much doubt that I will read any other Sci-fi this year that will be able to compare to Spindown! 
 
Spindown is amazing, it is thought provoking, emotional and mere words fail to describe how highly I recommend this debut novel. I predict George Wright Padgett will be an author to watch in the future.

- Mark at The To Be Read Pile Blog
