01/31/2021. Today I am announcing to the world (or as much of it as I can reach) that my post-apocalypse science fiction novel, Power of the Ancients, is released and available on Amazon.com. Of course, I’d like to reach potential readers—people with a desire for stories told in this genre. That’s more a matter of serendipity.
I have been developing this novel for many years, constructing situations, locations, a time-frame, and the characters to inhabit it all. The story is set in our fallen future (2327 CE) where people are living at a medieval level in a new ice age. Factions contend for dominance, looking for leverage with technology resurrected from our time. In the midst of all this, a working piece of high tech is discovered and grappled over. The key to finding, using, and maybe destroying this weaponized device, is a 17 year-old boy with psychic powers.
The future described in the book is my projection of our time. We are rapidly sliding into a New Dark Age and, obviously, I don’t see it ending well. But Power of the Ancients is not a tome on our current evils. It is a fiction about people, their angsts and relationships. And it conveys the old view, I hope, that the world is more than its appearances.
You can find Power of the Ancients on Amazon here.
