About the Book

Outlandish! tells the story of an unusual society, one composed exclusively of women. Impossible? Not with oocyte fusion, the blending of the genetic characteristics of two women, which produced only female children. This unfortunate necessity, after the bloody revolution, treachery, and counterrevolution aboard their Starship, over generations of travel, and colonization, became a familiar way of life.


Until, that is, they realized that with their advanced genetic knowledge, they could recreate the missing portion of humanity, if they dared. It was common knowledge that men were unstable, and dangerous.


Cautiously, they developed “kinder, gentler,” companions, which they called males.


The males became their household servants, their pets and slaves. ... Their willing slaves...

About the Author

Brian Hawthorne lives with his wife and two children in Maryland. One of those "quiet types" that you would never suspect.

As an avid reader and Science Fiction fan, he is following a prescription written by Dr. Isaac Asimov; that any reader, after long enough, will want to write. To that end, he writes for his own entertainment, and that of his readers. With creative exuberance, he tells of relationships, ingenious conveniences, and stubborn human behaviors.

Outlandish! is book one of a trilogy that will be available soon. He also writes ... poetry! So if you decide not to buy this book, you may still someday get to read his words in a greeting card.
