The Colonists by Keith Fenwick- book four in the Skidian Chronicles series
AUCKLAND, New Zealand - May 28, 2018 - PRLog -- Auckland writer, Keith Fenwick, has just released The Colonists, the fourth novel in the Skidian Chronicles series. Paperback US$15, Kindle eBook US$4.99.

The Colonists is Mr. Fenwick's fourth novel and continues the story of Skid, the most sophisticated planet in the known universe. Skid is slowly recovering from a spectacular population collapse after its leaders ignored signs of a disintegrating environment, believing they would be immune from its impact.

In the long-awaited sequel to The Lifeboat, the MFY program, managed from a farmhouse in rural New Zealand is sending astronauts on a one-way trip to Mars funded by a reality television show documenting their every move.

The few people who question how an organisation producing a reality television program can develop the capability to send people into space and develop a settlement in the harsh Martian environment, find themselves transported to the other side of the galaxy to a very different world.

Ultimately, the MFY program is a front for a project initiated by the Transcendents who inhabit a galactic version of the cloud to supply human bodies to meet their species continuity requirements and re-populate Skid.  But, sometimes the Transcendents decide to cut their own track which threatens to derail the entire project.
