Planet Hibernia, 3153 A.D. is an epic tale of a people’s quest for independence and freedom. In the thirty-second century the Irish nation-planet of Hibernia is struggling for its very survival, once again battling its ancient foe, Brittania, just as it has for centuries. Back on Earth, the once fabled land called America has retrogressed technologically, socially, and politically, and its population is isolated, trapped in the nineteenth century. Now the paths of these two nations are about to meet.
Planet Hibernia, 3153 A.D. is a powerful exploration of personal and cultural motivation, and John J. Shelton’s engaging and well-developed characters encourage readers to immerse themselves in this futuristic drama.
