Velera-Exi: mysteries of the paradox planets – Murder on Autarch 1
By: Andrea De Magistris & Michele Perni
Friends since early childhood, the two Italian authors were always fascinated by Literature, in particular sci-fi, horror and fantasy. As kids, they were highly inventive and competed with one another to see who could create the most incredible imaginary world, which most of the time was in a parallel universe or different era. As adults, the two authors embarked on different professional paths: Andrea set out to become a professional writer and has now been doing this for over a decade, while Michele started training to follow his other passion, science. During this time, however, the two authors kept in close contact and never stopped working on their dream to create a vast and fascinating story that would take place in an original universe, completely designed, and imagined by them. The idea for the “Velera-exi: mysteries of the paradox planets” Saga, took shape in late 1999 while becoming a reality in 2003, in a country house in Southern Italy. The authors’ dream was to create an original science fiction story that would also tackle some of the most important themes of our modern society, including pollution, corruption, religious belief, AI, and space exploration. The story grew from there, expanding into a much broader work. In 2019, almost 2 decades after their first sketch in a notebook, the two authors decided the script was finally completed, and their saga had a proper conclusion.
