Everyone on the first voyage to planet Éiruna went mad. Ten years later, passengers on the interstellar cruise ship Star Dreamer found out why: the planet’s magnetic field activated dormant telepathic genes in some passengers and crew. Theo Montrose, a restaurant manager and himself a new telepath, witnesses a woman use her new powers to heal people’s traumas. He resolves to learn how she did it, so he can cure a disease afflicting his wife, Carol. But Peter Cardinal, a resident-passenger on the ship whose genes activated years earlier, believes everyone will resent and fear the new telepaths. He recruits Theo and several others into a secret society, to prepare for the war he is certain will come. Amid conspiracy theories, supply shortages, and a quarantine order, Theo struggles to stop the war before it starts: a war that will divide his marriage, the ship, and all humanity.



ÉIRUNA is a high-concept science fiction novel about a restaurant chef on a cruise ship in space who struggles to keep his marriage together, while an outbreak of telepathy causes almost everyone around him to descend into conspiracy theories and fear.

It’s a story of identity, otherness, human nature, finding one’s tribe, and healing hidden pain.
