STILL FALLING

Barcus is a senior contract maintenance engineer on the doomed deep space survey ship Ventura.

He's a working stiff looking for a good paycheck. When the Ventura and its crew enter orbit for a scheduled planet survey, the ship activates an automated defense system protecting the planet. Although the Ventura is destroyed in the attack, Barcus alone survives the harrowing fall to the remote planet surface. He struggles to remain alive and sane, and to discover why everyone he knew and loved on the Ventura was deliberately murdered.

Swinging between despair and fury, Barcus discovers that for every answer he obtains, there are more questions raised. Barcus is assisted by the Emergency Module, Em, his most useful tool. It is an Artificial Intelligence system contained in an all-terrain vehicle specifically designed to help him survive. Barcus soon finds himself in the middle of a planetary genocide of the local native population. He is unable to stand passively by as more people die, even if they are long lost colonists who fear "The Man From Earth" like children fear the monster under their bed.

Will Barcus ever find his way home? Will he find out who is responsible? Will his rage just burn this world down? Or will he find his soul in the eyes of a starving, frightened woman?

  • When I decided to read "Still Falling', a novel by a new independent author, I had my usual average expectations. Boy was I WRONG! "Still Falling has to be one of the best Speculative Fiction novels I have read in the past 5 years. The premise is intriguing with a flawed hero consumed at times by; melancholy, fear, horror, anger, love and determination. I lost myself in the book for 2 days and was saddened when I reached the end.

    I have no idea when the next installment will be available, but I wish it was today. I never give 5 stars because I don't believe anyone is perfect but if Amazon had a 10 star system, this book would get 9 out of ten.

    Mr. Wilsey, you have a new fan. Your hard work and vision deserves more credit than I know how to give. I HIGHLY recommend STILL FALLING!!!

    The best book I have read in five years!

  • Excellent story. Kept me entertained all the way through.. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

  • Well thought out premise as both a complete read and a FOAK with a properly developed midrange and long range arc. One or two soft spots in the plot. It is strongly reminiscent of Butcher's 'Fury' series lead-off with a hard Sci-Fi, Anti-Magic lean. There were two editing errors that broke the flow of the read, but didn't alter the storyline and didn't feel like the Author's doing. Also, if there is an AR, there must be an AK... Move over, Azimov...

    Excellent Work. Highly Recommended.

  • It's a great read! A unique approach to a SF novel, he blends advanced technology and and a regressive world very well, contrasting the two and maintaining the two story lines and their interactions in an interesting way through the use of the characters. Well developed characters who aren't perfect, but doing the best they can with what they have. Well worth the read! Looking forward to the continuation of the story!

  • A fantastic first novel from Mr. Wilsey. I eagerly await more books from him!

    Roland Barcus is a crewman in the survey vessel Ventura. When the Ventura is destrpyed in orbit around the planet Baytirus Barcus finds himself marooned on the planet's surface with a highly advanced, prototype AI and the contents of a lifeboat to keep him alive. Baytirus is a world inhabited by humans living at a medieval technological level and subject to a brutal, genocidal world government. Barcus must stay alive while trying to survive in a society completely foreign to him while also attempting to learn what happened to the Ventura and her crew.

    "Still Falling" is a rich, complex story with multiple agendas simultaneously being pursued. I appreciate the deft use of foreshadowing that advances the plot and engrosses the reader without giving away the plot line. It kept me guessing and I'm pretty good at extrapolating fiction.

    If you enjoyed David Weber's Safehold series, then you will probably enjoy this novel too.

  • Martin Wilsey's "Still Falling," book 1 in the Solstice series, is a sci-fi novel that follows the exploits of a maintenance engineer in deep space. Stationed on Ventura, a giant deep space survey ship with a crew of 2,000, the protagonist, Barcus, is among those ambushed in an attack during a scheduled planet survey. He survives the attack, but the others do not. He flees to the planet's surface, where he finds out the murders, and the murders-to-come, are part of a grand conspiracy. I enjoyed following Barcus as he struggled to find a way to stop the senseless murders. The sci-fi aspects of the story, from the descriptions of the technology to the planets, were done well and added to the story. The plot is paced perfectly with lots of suspense and mystery. A recommended read if you want a fast-paced sci-fi novel with lots of action and suspense.

    Sci-fi with action, suspense, and mystery

  • An excellent read! Strong character development centered around the protagonist, Barcus, as he struggles to survive on a strange planet after an unexpected incident destroys his ship, and takes the lives of all others aboard, his only companion initially, an artificial intelligence designed to help him adapt. A good blend of a world set in medieval development, with touches of sci-fi with the AI and other components that Barcus has and/or recovers.

    A solid story of survival in a strange land. Well paced. Good adventure, with a touch of mystery as we follow along with Barcus in his search for answers. Looking forward to the continuation of the series!

    Solid character-driven sci-fi tale...

  • Mr. Wilsey crafted a well paced, we developed science fiction plot with characters who brought their own compelling stories to the mix. Barcus, the hero of the tale, while believable, was a bit "too good". It's not an uncommon thing for an author to do, but people are always a bit more complex than that. I'm looking forward to the next edition in the series.

    Mr. Wilsey crafted a well paced, we developed ...
