'There will never be another Douglas Adams but Benn, combining his stand-up comedy talent with his obvious love for the genre, might be the closest you'll ever get.'


Mitch Benn is a British stand-up comedian, author, satirical songwriter and lifelong Sci-Fi nerd, who has written three Science Fiction novels. The Terra Trilogy is a series for young readers (and adults who remember being one) which follows Terra, a human girl raised by aliens, on her adventures across the galaxy.


The first two books, Terra and Terra’s World, were originally published in 2013 and 2014 to wide acclaim, including glowing reviews in The Times and The Independent. Terra was also listed in The Guardian’s Top 10 Sci-Fi books of the year.


The long-awaited conclusion to the trilogy, Terra’s War, will be released on 15th March 2021. The first two books are being re-released with new cover art and marketing support – Terra is available now, and Terra’s World from 1st February 2021.

For Terra, the human alien, fitting in was never an option.

Abducted from Earth as a baby by a well-meaning alien, Terra has grown up far across the galaxy on planet Fnrr. Terra has always known she was different. Her skin isn’t grey. Her eyes are a weird blue colour. She has... ears.

And now Terra is starting high school. A daunting prospect, even without being the only human in class.

There’s lots to like about life on Fnrr. Society is ordered and peaceful; founded on reason, logic and the pursuit of knowledge. However, its inhabitants are blissfully unaware of the impending invasion that could destroy their way of life forever...

Before long, Terra will find herself propelled into a fierce battle to save the world she calls home.

A story for young readers - or adults who remember being one - Mitch Benn’s Terra is a warm and witty coming-of-age Sci-Fi adventure for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. Escape into a story of hope, discovery and the unbreakable bonds we naively refer to as ‘humanity’.


Praise for Terra:

'Terra is delightful... I found myself thinking of Roald Dahl, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, but the voice and story are uniquely Mitch Benn’s. Wise, funny, and above all, human.NEIL GAIMAN

'High-end deadpan Sci-Fi silliness... with added warmth. For a story set light years away, it feels wonderfully human.' MATT HAIG

'Mitch Benn is a very fine writer and Terra is a very fine book.' THE INDEPENDENT
