"Evolution can occur through sheer will. Our habits determine the expression of our genes." - Song of Edmon
I've always enjoyed creative writing as part of my artistic pursuits. I finished in the top 10% of the Nicholl Fellowship twice and made it to the Quarterfinals once for my screenwriting. I came to write my first Science Fiction Novel, Song of Edmon, after befriending Philip Eisner (EVENT HORIZON) in a writer's group. Several D&D-style games later and I was writing the memoirs of a peculiar doctor serving aboard an interstellar mail-freighter. The gaming took a hiatus, but the writing expanded eventually getting picked up by publisher 47NORTH. You can check out more below!
THE FRACTURE WORLD SERIES
Original Science Fiction by Adam Burch
SONG OF EDMON
In Adam Burch’s thrilling series debut, a young man must choose between violence and peace in a distant world divided between those who thrive in endless sunlight and those who survive in eternal darkness.
The isolated planet of Tao is a house divided: the peaceful Daysiders live in harmony while the pale Nightsiders pursue power and racial purity through the violent ritual of the Combat.
Edmon Leontes, the gentle son of a ruthless warrior noble and a proud Daysider, embodies Tao’s split nature. The product of diametrically opposed races, Edmon hopes to live a quiet life pursuing the music of his mother’s people, but his Nightsider father cruelly forces him to continue in his bloody footsteps to ensure his legacy.
Edmon’s defiance will cost him everything…and spark a revolution that will shake the foundations of Tao. His choice—to embrace the light or surrender to the darkness—will shape his own fate and that of his divided world.

When he rebelled against his father, Edmon Leontes lost everything, but a lot has happened in the twelve years since he left his remote home planet of Tao. He has made a new life for himself as the medic aboard a starship, earning his keep traversing the galaxy with a misfit crew. Edmon thinks he has left his tumultuous past behind him, yet all that changes when his father dies.
Phaestion, the man he once called brother, has inherited Edmon’s birthright. But Phaestion’s ambitions of domination are not limited to Tao, and he is not inclined to let a rival—even one in exile—continue living. Phaestion’s pursuit of power spans the universe, running afoul of powers no one is fit to be meddling with. Edmon will need to confront his past as he and his crew race across worlds to uncover the origins of the Fracture…and save the universe from complete destruction.
