A new dawn is on the horizon, where boundaries are broken, diversity is embraced, and an optimistic, creative vision of our future on Earth takes center stage.
Fear takes us down an unexpected road in EOS, a revolutionary Solarpunk story from author Samantha Redstreake Geary, in collaboration with artist Jenny Vyas, featuring music by Really Slow Motion, and groundbreaking graphics via designer Koke Núñez Gómez! EOS tackles real-world issues concerning terrorism, prejudice, and diversity, to near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy that restores the balance between humanity and nature. This isn’t a defeatist tale. It is a look through the lens of positive futurism that showcases the courage, compassion and capabilities of humanity as equal partners in building a bridge to a better tomorrow.
Meet the Characters
In the heart of the North Carolina mountains, in the space between ideas and audacity, lies an unremarkable road to an extraordinary place.
Traveling down this path are two young women. One has grown in my shadow. The other escapes my grasp. She and I shall meet soon enough.
The girl with copper curls and sea green eyes stares through the glass, hungry for the rich colors and glaring sun that beckon on the other side. A tempting tapestry of towering trees and sapphire sky pass in a blur. It is Selene’s first venture beyond the stifling walls of the institute that prepared her to meet the world, but not to know her place in it.
She yearns to stop, to step into the foreign land pulsing with life and study its roots. But the mountains were to remain a mystery, for her destination is not the woods themselves. It is the dawn.
A subtle shift in the surroundings pulls Selene closer to the window. The tangled limbs of the wild woods morph into something manageable, their pattern purposeful. A wave of soft blues and emeralds wink along the sides of the road as they pass.
“The lights. Are they…alive?” Selene asks, her eyes widening.
Masako leans into the window, her gaze trained on the glimmering foliage. “They appear to be bioluminescent plants.”
Selene lowers the glass control and stretches her neck out of the window. “Bioluminescent vegetation is not possible in nature,” she calls into the wind.
Masako grins at her reflection in the glass, flickering lights dancing in her dark eyes. “Where we’re headed, anything is possible.”
