LOS ANGELES, CA:  Mike Gullickson’s debut novel, The Northern Star: The Beginning, has received accolades from the indie press.  To promote its recent feature on Examiner, from June 19th through June 20th, the novel will be free on Amazon Kindle.  The action-packed and thought-provoking scifi novel, based in 2058, tackles very real concerns about oil depletion and our addiction to technology.  Through the eyes of John Raimey, a crippled soldier, we see a world of ideals warped under the crushing weight of need.  China and the U.S. battle over a cyber-weapon, while a global corporation rises beyond governance.  John is caught in the center, and for his family and country, he agrees to become a Tank Major, the first bionic soldier.  He quickly learns that the cost of progress may be his soul.
The Northern Star came to be in a song.  It started with the giants - the Tank Majors - and then it evolved into a global story that extrapolates on most of the fears we deal with today.  While it’s political, in the end, it’s about man trying to do what’s best, and learning that isn’t good enough.”  Mike Gullickson
“It’s not often that you find new SciFi writers who are able to crank out page turners on their first go. This is one of them.”
“ [The Northern Star: The Beginning] harkens back to great sci-fi of the 40’s and 50’s (The Stars My Destination, Brain Wave).”
“I was treated to an old school, science-fiction romp . . . The characters are complex creations that grow and evolve throughout the story . . . ”
