Book one of The Cyannian Trilogy, 'Cataclysm Earth', progressively takes the reader through a fantasy of predictive science fiction. It begins on a factual note, submitting the idea that Earth's inhabitants have interfered with their planet's delicate ecology. Research and experimentation, affluent life-styles, immorality, deforestation all combine to depreciate Earth’s environment. During his civilisation’s collapse a journalist, Tristram Velby and his family, struggle against appalling odds. Having experienced three dreams, he soon realises the first’s similarity to the cataclysmic event taking place. The second dream takes them, and others lifted from Earth, on a voyage to a strange alien world. The third reveals secrets of a ‘Universal Technology’ locked in a temple that will take Earth into the ‘Celestial Realm’.
