New book has humans fleeing to Earth

Tulare County public defender C.A. Hiddleston pens political satire about climate change on the prehistoric moon


VISALIA – What if human life had begun on the moon and eventually humans had to flee to Earth to escape the effects of climate change? 

C. A. Hiddleston
Local author

That’s the premise of a new political satire written by C.A. Hiddleston, a senior deputy public defender living in Tulare County.

Experience the extreme sweat of the last desperate days of global warming in C.A. Hiddleston’s newly released book, Moon Jump; an intense story about young humanoids fleeing the Moon to primitive Earth to escape the intense heat generated by environmental pollution.  

A narrative broken into two main parts, Moon Jump tells the tales of those left behind on the moon: parents, governing officials, etc, and of those granted the responsibility of starting new life on the Earth. Alternating chapters jump between these two viewpoints, providing readers the perspective of each respective party at the end of day. 

A project with origins based in the authors fascination with the beauty of Earth’s moon, Moon Jump represents Hiddleston’s culmination of research and creativity all derived from an incredibly unique concept: “I began doing research on the Moon’s story and about other moons around planets in our solar system where astronomers believe life was once possible. The idea came of doing a fantastical history of the Moon from the point of view of beings that once lived there,” says Hiddleston.

A compelling, thought-provoking read that’s sure to resonate with readers from all backgrounds, Moon Jump is a work of science-fiction that fans will be falling back on for decades to come.

C. A. Hiddleston is a graduate of Southern Methodist University where he received a bachelor’s degree in political science and first learned of global warming in 1980 in a Philosophy of Technology class. Thereafter, he received a law degree from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California, where some of the book’s scenery is from, of the primitive Earth. 

Moon Jump, published by Austin Macauley, was released on May 31, 2019. The price is $6.95 and it is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble as well as other bookstores around the country.
