*****

The Earth is dying.

Only a few hundred thousand people remain.

Just in time, scientists discover how to travel to a distant planet.

Five Colony ships are built. But it’s the last one which contains the key to our future. On it, a teenage colonist named Pete dreams of adventures among the stars.

But when his Colony ship drops out of Hyperspace and is attacked by a brutal pirate race known as The Huuk, Pete’s dream of adventure turns to one of survival, because the Huuk want nothing less than the extinction of the human race.

Along with his sister Wendy, a dozen lost children, and some unexpected help from a race of tiny aliens on the planet’s surface, Pete must find a way to stop the Huuk and save Humanity.

PAAN is a futuristic reinvention of the children’s classic.

But this is no fairy tale. It’s edgy science fiction with real stakes.

No magic pixie dust.

No green tights.

Just a hero who has yet to discover himself.

All Accolades & Coverage: 

Loved universally, Paan has placed QF with PAGE, Austin and the Stage 32 SF/Fantasy awards!
