Pennsylvania Book1“Pennsylvania is a brilliant tale of extra-planetary colonization. With parallels to the European settlement of the America’s, Michael Bunker draws on his Amish roots and lifestyle to portray that tenuous balance between mankind and its machines. He also knows better than most the difficulty of surviving on civilization’s frontier. I daresay the wait for the next great Amish science fiction author may be finally at an end.” ~ HUGH HOWEY, NYT Bestselling Author of WOOL and Peace in Amber.

“You’ll quickly go from wondering ‘Amish science fiction?’ to asking ‘Why the heck didn’t anyone think of this before?’ Fast-paced, intricately plotted, and providing a novel perspective on our own world, Pennsylvania is a refreshingly original take on dystopian sci-fi.” ~ DAVID GATEWOOD

…Sensational! Brings me back to my youth when I was reading Heinlein and Asimov. The story is great. The premise excellent. Engaging and vivid, I compare it to Tunnel in the Sky, by Robert Heinlein. Bunker…you are on the road to being an author to be reckoned with…
…At first I thought an Amish Sci-Fi adventure sounded a little strange, but after I started reading I couldn’t put the book down….
…Just finished reading this. Must…. have…. more….
…What a great idea. Amish and Sci-Fi. As strange as it sounds, it works. Boy, does it work…
…The ending snuck up on me, but has since haunted me for days…
…Once again, he’s written a book that features an excellent plot and development, containing unforgettable characters and events…
…hook, line, and sinker…
…Bunker is sensational. Excellent story telling. His books bring the characters to life and you end up wanting more…

Jedidiah Troyer just wants to start a farm and homestead on some affordable land in a new Amish community, but… what if the only good, cheap, available land was on another planet? So now Jed has signed up for an emigration program that is intent on colonizing the distant planet of New Pennsylvania. He faces a despotic government agency at war with rebels, the caprices of interstellar travel, a shadowy futuristic insurgency on his new planet, and more mysteries than he can count as he tries to fulfill his dream of owning his own farm.

Space pioneering isn’t as easy as it sounds when you’re “plain.” Things might work out for Jed… if he can ever get to his new home.

Pennsylvania is a short story, 16,500 words (about forty five pages,) and it is the first in the planned Pennsylvania series which is intended to be a five part collection that will eventually make up the Pennsylvania novel.
