"It’s fun, sexy, and inclusive." - BookRiot.com
A heartfelt, positive, and erotic look at one woman's adventure in love and sex, as a new generation learns to make their own rules and follow their own hearts aboard an orbiting space station.
Rigo is a young woman of her time: specifically, the time just after the collapse of Earth. After living her whole life on a small space station orbiting the planet, the cultural norms and rules of her Californian parents are just history to her. In between work shifts at the station air farm, Rigo explores her own desires, developing openly polyamorous relationships with her friends and crewmates. When she starts to feel one of those relationships change, however, Rigo must balance her new feelings with the stability of her other relationships, as well as the hard-earned camaraderie of a small crew floating in the vastness of space. But, as the ship motto goes, "Honesty keeps us alive."
Loved by our collective!
A sexy new collabs from author Sarah Mirk and artists Eva Cabrera and Claudia Aguirre, "Open Earth" is one third latinx coming of age story, one third sci-fi space drama, and one third non-monogamy teaching tool. If you woke up today needing a spanglish, body positive, trans-inclusive rom-com graphic novel... this one's for you! (And maybe, like me, you didn't know you needed such a thing until this very moment, but that's OK, welcome to the party!)
