Dystopian Science Fiction By J. I. Rogers

Book one

I’ve described my writing style and genre over on my author profile. For the sake of clarity (and the SEO rating), I’ll reiterate redundantly; this is an adult dystopian science fiction series. If you enjoy classic sci-fi, dystopian fiction, cyberpunk, or space opera, then this book may be just the book for you.

Book covers of "The Korpes File" - book 1 in digital and paperback formats. Genre: Dystopian, science fiction, with a dash of space opera thrown in.

From the back cover:
“As if being born Diasporan wasn’t enough, Technician Nash Korpes had the bad luck to resemble his Tyran ancestors almost identically in both form, and manner. These traits, though highly prized by the special projects division at the shadowy Korlune Military Research and Development, mark him as a specter from their warlike past. With only his intellect holding his sanity in place, he wages a private war against the entire socioeconomic status quo and begins to uncover the truth that threatens them all.”

Editorial Reviews:

Five Stars “Few debut books attempt to achieve what J. I. Rogers set out to achieve, and even fewer are able to create a story that is so unlike everything else out there. The Korpes File is one such work and a stellar debut novel for Rogers.”

Gwenellen Tarbet of InD’Tale Magazine

Five Stars “…The sci-fi piece is plainly at the core of the story, but J.I. Rogers fluidly incorporated levels of racism, love and corruption into the story-line as well. The Korpes File is sure to be a hit with sci-fi fans…”

Originally critiqued by a member of the Authors Talk About It team

The International Review of Books gold badge of achievement – “The world-building is extensive and very well-written. The characters are many, but once the story gets going and the characters are introduced, it flows…”

Five Stars “…The diversity of characters and situations that drive this plot-line forward, amidst a perfect storm of shocking and oftentimes devastating scenarios, causes cultural diversity to spur racial paranoia, impossible technologies to suddenly be made possible, and clashing personalities to find a way to mesh together despite their differences—allowing the main protagonists to somehow come together and work toward a common goal…”
