About the Book

Explore humanity's futuristic attempt to control destiny, at all costs, in a time that is plagued by individuals having no scruples when it comes to getting their way, especially when commanding the technology to quite possibly achieve it.

It is now the Twenty-Sixth Century. Although humanity has overcome the average, everyday problems associated with life on Earth and abroad, some annoyances still remain.

'Abnormal' human behavior, including racial and religious prejudices, are controlled by the oppressive World Government, but are still a part of the human condition. Mankind's environment has changed, but the human heart has not.

Space travel is widespread and common-place throughout the Milky Way Galaxy. Numerous habitable and adaptable planets are populated with humans from Earth. Great efforts had been undertaken to find alien life, but the only ones found were the beasts within humans.

About the Author

Giacinto Pira, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, was always interested in airplanes and reading about/watching Science Fiction in particular, as well as other genres on television and in the movies. After studying drama in high school, he decided to temporarily put aside his interests in the arts and concentrate his learning energies in the Aviation/Aerospace field and attended an aviation college to do it. After which, he entered commercial aviation, later transferred to Southern California and has worked various airline jobs, up to and including aircraft inspector. After some time at that, he decided to pick up on the other art he so very much loved and drove forward to improve the quality of Science Fiction (among other genres) already out there, by writing his own, which is now available for your enjoyment.

In memory of Angelo Pira, devoted and very much loved father of the author.
