    From terror attacks to the War on Terror, bursting real-estate bubbles to crystal meth epidemics, sexual predators to poisonous toys from China, our list of fears seems to be exploding. And yet, we are the safest and healthiest humans in history. Irrational fear is running amok, and often with tragic results. In the months after 9/11, when people decided to drive instead of fly - believing they were avoiding risk - road deaths rose by 1,595. Those lives were lost to fear.

    Like so many others, Ramón Espejo ran from the poverty and hopelessness of the Third World to the promise of a new world, joining a host of like-minded workers and dreamers aboard one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the life he found on the far-off planet of São Paulo was no better than the one he had abandoned.

    Der König der Fantasy schreibt Science Fiction. Ramon Espejos Leben verläuft bei Weitem nicht so wie geplant. Nicht nur, dass er auf einem kaum erschlossenen Kolonieplaneten gestrandet ist. Er muss auch noch vor der Justiz in die Wildnis flüchten, weil er im Streit um eine Frau seinen Gegner getötet hat. Dort wird er von einem bislang unbekannten Alien-Volk gefangen genommen. Da entkommt ein anderer menschlicher Gefangener der Kontrolle der Aliens. Diese zwingen Ramon, den Flüchtigen für sie zu verfolgen.

    A fight in an alley behind a bar: a visiting European is knifed by local thug Ramon Espejo, and all hell breaks loose. The dead man was a diplomat on an important mission to São Paulo, and next day Ramon is on the run heading north in his van toward land that no one has ever explored, or even thought of exploring, land so far only glimpsed from orbit during the first colony surveys.
