From the author of a tweet that Mark Hamill liked comes a book which R.A. Salvatore wished ‘Congratulations‘ on finishing & Brandon Sanderson sent his ‘deep apologies for being unable to provide a jacket quote at this time because his work schedule is busier than ever, making it extremely difficult to find the time he would want to dedicate to your book,’ comes a modern Solarpunk fairytale, just in time to help avert an apocalypse of apoplectic apathy.

Original comic-book-style character art by Randall Hampton – a little different than the final characters you see in Amos the Amazing! (or maybe, alternate universe versions you might still meet!)

SOLARPUNK or 太阳朋克, (sun punk in Chinese) literature envisions how the future will look when we succeed in solving major contemporary challenges by focusing on sustainability, a harmonious relationship between humans and the natural world, tackling and solving issues of climate change and pollution with green solutions, and community-driven efforts. Punk is a rebel’s cause, and what could be more rebellious in 2022 than being optimistic?

The world’s spiciest ice cream, a trip to Chongqing’s rural countryside, & a strange collection of curious belongings begin this unforgettable tale that mixes Solar Punk science fiction and high fantasy for a thrilling modern fairytale about a boy who risks his soul to chase a 9-tail fox into the dreamlands for the adventure of a lifetime and the chance to save his family.

"My favorite book of the year." - Brooke Auckerman @BrookLovesBooks23
"Full of excitement, adventure, and magic" - @lisabookishlife
"Once it got me turning the pages, I simply couldn't stop. For me, that was the theme of Taoist thought, which gets me every time I encounter it in the wild. It is so beautiful -- and here it is, like finding grass growing from glass. For other readers, the element that snags and pulls the imagination into this story might be one of a hundred others. That's kind of this book's magic…" - @Donasbooks
"The end left me gasping for the next installment," - Richard Devall, Vine Voice
Amos, a puckish 12-year-old boy who hides his insecurities behind a mask of mischief, dons strange artifacts he uncovers from his father’s childhood bedroom. A peculiar power pulses through his body as he slips into a world of magic and monsters, where the dangerous-amber-eyed huli jing—a nine-tailed fox spirit—draws him out, steals his soul, and poisons his grandpa.
Against all odds, Amos chases the fox into the dreamland, where he meets friends and foes along the way on a perilous and fantastic journey to recover his soul before all is lost. A spine-tingling adventure full of imaginative characters and dazzling creatures, Amos the Amazing will delight adults, teens, and anyone who dares peer beyond the shadows.
