In 1984, a global nuclear catastrophe almost destroyed the world. Thirty years later, American society struggles to rebuild in the face of widespread fear, sickness and paranoia, as the chasm between the haves and the have-nots continues to grow.
While fleeing from a gang of marauders, Laurie Sparks, a beautiful young monk with an appetite for the good life and a knack for finding trouble, seeks refuge within a sinister subterranean church and inadvertently exposes the dangerous secrets of his past. Laurie’s adventures take him from desert wastelands to the decaying ruins of once-great cities, from seedy strip clubs and casinos to glamorous yachts on the Pacific and luxurious Park Avenue penthouses. In between nursing a whopping crush on his handsome traveling companion, Jonathan, and dodging the attentions of lechers, miscreants and murderers, Laurie yearns for clean sheets and room service and dreams of becoming the first television star of the post-apocalyptic age.
An alternate-timeline reimagining of Morgan Richter’s award-winning novel BIAS CUT, LONELY SATELLITE is a story about how hope may be found in the middle of desolation, how allies pop up in the unlikeliest of places, and how the apocalypse is easier to face with liberal doses of champagne and frequent bubble baths.
