Epic Publishing in the US has acquired English Language rights to RABBIT IN THE MOON, a previously unpublished 2018 science fiction novel by Fiona Moore. The agent was John Jarrold.


Ken Usagi, a young journalist from Nunavut, finds himself travelling south through a war-torn former United States after a terrifying encounter with a biotechnical machine that he remembers from his childhood, which might hold the key to ending the war. Meanwhile Totchli, a young biotechnician from a Mesoamerican society under threat from catastrophic climate change, is ordered to travel north to find out what happened to a colonial expedition on which everyone’s hopes for survival were pinned– but whose members have gone silent after an apparent descent into madness.  As the two journeys approach each other, realities merge and cracks appear in the logic of both worlds. When Usagi and Totchli meet, will they shape a new universe, or destroy civilization for all time?
