Christopher Paolini’s scifi novel, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, is the first in what will be many books set in a “real world” universe, the Fractalverse.

While To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is set in the future, Christopher has stated that the Fractalverse also encompasses the present day, and all the people and issues that we currently grapple with.

Christopher’s world of Alagaësia and the Inheritance Cycle books are not a part of the Fractalverse.
