About Shelby + Danny Cragg + Brian Russell


You are one of the only remaining humans in the universe. You are being raised by an alien species called Compies on a space station; your only contact with your friends is through instant messaging. You have to deal with the unclear motivations of your Doctors, your loneliness, and all the fraught feelings that come with being a teen. 

And then your home is attacked by space pirates. You, your friends, and your world will never be the same.

NEOKOSMOS is a series of illustrated novels by D.S. Cragg following the lives of Tye, Zee, Iris, and Seven as they are raised as experiments and the realities of the universe they live in after the mass-extinction of the human species. It deals with themes of isolation, abuse, human connection, psychic powers, and of course, aliens. So many aliens. 

We’ve completed Draft One of the first novel, which is available to all patrons. Draft Two is now underway, and we’re focused on getting the story changes and new illustrations done as fast as possible to make NEOKOSMOS the best it can be.

Patrons also get access to our exclusive and active Discord community, which is a chill, LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse welcoming place where you can discuss the latest chapters, gay aliens, and science fiction. We’re always welcoming new members, so why not come by?

You can find NEOKOSMOS on social media:
