A Science Fiction Adventure

Bi-racials, Half-breeds, Mulattoes and Mongrels

At times they were unwanted, ridiculed and ostracized by society. Many were abandoned at birth and forced to endure rejection and scorn for a circumstance of birth they had no say in. Nearly all of them struggled with the anguish of not being fully accepted by any race.

In the second decade of the 21st Century a twist of fate would change all of that and catapult them to the pinnacle of humanity where their heroism and sacrifice will become legendary.

After Logan, the first MAN, led the world powers of Earth to a victory over the Hadaran expeditionary force he then set about preparing mankind for the return of the fierce aliens in far greater numbers. Only multi-race humans, those having the prerequisite diverse genetic make-up for enhancement to a super-human genome-adept by the Trans Cerebral Imprinter, will stand in the way of total domination and enslavement of the human race.

With the integration of advanced alien technology and Earth's preeminent scientific minds, Logan builds an army of genome-adepts, the most lethal fighting force in human history and leads them in a desperate battle for Earth.

Genesis of My Writing

I have been an avid reader all of my life. It started with comic books, if I recall correctly, around the age of seven. I read just about all of them but the Marvel comics were my favorites. The X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Spiderman, Thor and the Hulk filled my daydreams for many years. I recall collecting returnable pop bottles in order to buy candy and comic books. Around the fifth or sixth grade I read a children's book entitled 'The Boxcar Children' and I've been hooked on novels ever since. From that point on one of my favorite places was the school library. I would even sneak and read my mother's romance novels (don't laugh guys, it made me a better lover). My interests in reading material has changed considerably over the years. I subscribe to several magazines and other publications, mainly for research and background material for my writing. For pleasure reading my favorites are Science Fiction, Fiction, War, Espionage and lately, Crime novels.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that I would want to write my own novel. I've read so many novels that didn't end as I believed they should. I often found myself imaging alternate endings. At some point I decided to try to write my own great American science fiction novel. Its finally a reality. When I designed the cover I tried to convey some of the major concepts of the novel. As you can see the title of my first novel is The Dawn of MAN. The head is rising out of a simple matrix that represents the human genome. The backdrop of planet earth and the stars represents the stage setting of the story and the sun rising from the east is of course designed to represent the dawn of a new day and by reference a new era.

This second novel continues the saga of Logan, the first MAN and examines many of the controversial issues confronting society today, the race issue chief among them as well as religion and the questions surrounding the debate over creation vs evolution. I raise serious questions that I've had all of my life concerning the nature of man. In that respect the novel is, in it's purest sense, a story that puts forward a possible scenario to explain the violent nature of human beings.

As with the first novel in the trilogy, this novel could be classified as military science fiction. It also, due to my wife's influence, includes more romance and sex. I for one always enjoy a love story as a sub-plot in a movie or novel. So my book has something for everyone but first and foremost it is a science fiction novel.
