In the not too distant future, a bioengineering, medical technology breakthrough—touted as the modern-day fountain of youth—means a redo of the past is not only conceivable, it is possible. The stuff of science fiction without the time machine, Renovation is a cosmetic procedure with hindsight built in. And, Charlotte Rhys Fenn longs for a second crank at her life. On the verge of depression, forlorn with the machinations of the world, if nothing else, a do-over could shine a spark of light through the doldrums of Charley's middle-age. Another past must lead to a different future.
To be or to have been ...
Long since buried dreams would be within her grasp again. The best part being that behind the fresh face of youth, Charley would be the same. With all her past experiences on her side, she could pursue a new career and have a bit of youthful adventure as well, two things only cellular regression and regeneration can uniquely promise.
Yet, her decision could destroy her current and well-earned lifestyle as well as distance her from the those she loves. Charley's personal renovation might have a butterfly effect all around.
"Regeneration X," book 1 of the Regeneration Chronicles is a character-driven, speculative, social science fiction story that sheds light on the pursuit of happiness, a major quest of the human condition. It will leave you questioning whether "in hindsight" is better than having the chance to undo regrets. Learn more at EllisonBlackburn.com/Regeneration-X/
Praise for Regeneration X:
"Few sci-fi and fantasy books have given me the same level of introspection as this tale."
"... the mess of issues Charley faces in trying to make peace between her desires and her responsibilities will be shockingly familiar to many readers."
"... thoughtful, measured, poetic deliberation with an amazing set of vivid characters."
"Ellison Blackburn writes with the incisiveness of a clinician deeply informed by the sensibilities of a poet. This is rare and personally, I would place Regeneration X among the top ranks of the literature with which I am acquainted." -Owen O'Neill, author
"Blackburn's novel delivers the pleasures of a well-drawn near future, with an uncommonly authentic and credible scientific backdrop--but what makes her first novel so unexpectedly refreshing as genre fiction is how deeply and decisively character-driven it is." -Roger Margolis, author and former writing instructor.
