In this world, cats talk, pizzas come in tube and David Bowie does live on Mars.

WELCOME TO THE RETROFUTURE!


WHAT'S THE FUSS ABOUT?


In a near future and the merciless cosmos survives Lee, the space Maine Coon, despite his ready tongue and his sassy feline comments giving him nothing but troubles. Fortunately, he goes along with "his" sapiens and partner: Ali, a violent and cheeky young woman who only swears by her Desert Eagle .50 and her oversized soda cups. Aboard their mythical ship, the Kitty, this duo of bounty hunters travels through the faithless and lawless void, staging a succession of disasters.


The future that never was is an action-driven science-fiction book series borrowing from different sub-genres such as space opera, space western, cassette futurism and cyberpunk. Its first story, KITTY KITTY, focuses on a unique and deeply retro universe. Because, in this uchronia, the Soviets planted the Red Flag on the Moon in 1955. Since then, mankind has relentlessly pushed its colonies to the ends of the solar system. It devotes all its scientific and industrial resources to it. Thereby, its cultural codes seem frozen in some alternative 1980s where Floppy disks are kings and David Hasselhoff is the ultimate galactic superstar; Robots do all the work and the packs of cigarettes are cheaper than ever! Yet, as humanity is expanding through the Kuiper Belt and the New Worlds, the overly consumerist society is slowly collapsing because of the never-ending corpo-wars and the blatant technocratic corruption.

So… what are you waiting for?

Dive into this strange future of punks cyborgs and flying shiny Chryslers! Bloody, irreverent but always hilarious, The future that never was' KITTY KITTY will allow you no respite!

#1 RETRO COSMOS

"The bar's neon lights over his skull illuminated his sweaty face with red, threatening to ignite the lacquer. He looked like a maniac and nobody moved after this new warning."

#2 THE TWISTED HEIST

"It was a true dance of flesh, steel and plastic bodies with assumed nudity. Implants and surgery erased the hazards of the genetic lottery for better or worse. It was so superficial. So futile. So human."

#3 INELUCTABLE DUEL

"Ali then passed him her caliber, barrel in hand, without a word. I didn’t even realize she was listening. It was a habit of hers; following a conversation while sleeping."

#4 THE MELLIFLUOUS CAVERNS

"The immense rock was pulled out of its orbit by two gigantic Hangmen stellar destroyers. On their armor was drawn the coat of arms and the motto of the Alliance: Crime Does Pays." ”.

#5 LORD OF THE TANKS

"With his neatly trimmed pepper hair and piercing green eyes staring us like we were cockroaches bathing in his Corn Flakes, the Marine didn’t seem too thrilled to find us here."

#6 HONOR AMONG THIEVES

"I bit him hard enough to draw blood before I was half knocked unconscious with a stick. I had saved this charming couple of trash pandas but that was the end for me."

#7 LITTLE MUTANT ON THE PRAIRIE

"That was the major difficulty of living among sapiens: dissociate the good from the bad. It was such a grueling exercise because they often mixed the two."

#8 THE RED FORTRESS

"Life was about moving forward while getting punched in the face. But my life-long partner made every second of it worthy. And Zéphyr shared this feeling. "
