Talyn’s Heroic Journey in #Farscape Is Now Available on Kindle

Do you like Farscape? Do unlikely heroes interest you? Are redemption stories compelling to you? Then, you’ll probably want to check out my eBook, Talyn’s Heroic Journey in Farscape:

Created in 1999 by Rockne S. O’Bannon, the Science Fiction television series Farscape focuses on the eclectic crew of a living ship called Moya. One of the supporting characters, Talyn, is Moya’s hybrid offspring, is born at the end of the first season and also experiences his own heroic journey.

Since the show belongs to the Science Fiction genre, it is interesting to study how a non-human character that isn’t even humanoid might become a hero. While cyborg and alien heroes have existed in Science Fiction narratives of many kinds, it remains rather rare that a space ship, even alive and sentient, is given significant character development.

Three elements are of particular significance in the analysis of hybrid’s heroic journey: Talyn’s origins and likeness to a Chosen One character type, his two mentor figures – Aeryn Sun and Bialar Crais, and the darker times Talyn faces before finding redemption upon his death.

Priced at 0.99, this short nonfiction read is now available in Kindle format on all Amazon sites, including Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon Australia. It also has its Goodreads page. I am also happy to say it is my title who had most preorders since I have taken the indie publishing road in January.

Happy reading!

    Reblogged this on Griffins and Ginger Snaps and commented:
    The witer is the friend of a friend. This caught my eye because Farscape was one of those shows that I missed along the way. My husband’s friend sent us his DVD set of the series when he finished with it, and it still took us a few years to get to it.

    I felt that the show had its issues, but that was my nitpickyness of being a longtime science fiction in space fan. It felt like a cross between Star Trek and Babylon 5. There was a good ensemble cast, unusual characters who didn’t fit their stereotypes, a home on the ship, friendship, and a good story.It was futuristic and modern.

    One of the arcs that I found interesting was Talyn’s story. For those who are unfamiliar with the show, Talyn is a ship. He is a living ship and the hybrid offspring of the living ship, Moya, that the crew travels on. His story is unusual, and I was so excited to see Natacha’s book about his journey.

    It is now available on Kindle, and I’m looking forward to reading it and seeing how close my own thoughts mesh with hers.

      Thank you very much for the reblog and I hope that you will enjoy reading this eBook. I originally started writing about Talyn when working on Star Wars in 2005 (seeing parallels between Moya and Talyn and Shmi and Anakin Skywalker). This was how this short nonfiction read came to life. I like being able to focus both on more well known characters and secondary ones like Talyn. It makes things interesting for me as a writer and hopefully for my readers too. 🙂
