Cypriots launch new sci-fi novel

By Anne Canalp

Published in English last year by Nicosia-based Armida Books under the title Y2.200K: A Chronicle, Mr Michaelides’s book imagines a future threatened by highly intelligent aliens and questions whether man’s instinct for survival will triumph and at what cost.

Mr Michaelides said the Turkish Cypriot artist’s symbolic and philosophical art was the perfect illustration for his novel, adding that his talents had made the book a desirable object as well as a story.

His imaginary tale spans 150 years from 2050 to 2200 as a human space mission journeys to Proxima Centauri while disasters wipe out billions on Earth, and questions our failure to achieve world peace.
