After a great cataclysm on earth, the technologically advanced Hybridites and the earthly Barbarians are ruled by an evil president, Zarno; both groups claim to be the original inhabitants. When Zarno plans to send the space station XRZ29B, Captain Lance L. Locke in command and a multitude of innocent Hybridites into a black hole, there is friction with many twists and turns between an archeologist, the space captain and Zarno, which evolves into a Sci-Fi thriller with action, adventure, romance and humor.
A great cataclysm has changed the face of the earth. A hybrid race is kept in ignorance of a devious ruler’s intent by claiming power through his wise owl-like all knowing “Source.” A space city with innocent Hybridites, guided by a loyal captain, is unknowingly headed for destruction. An archeologist searches the desert sands for history while his people cry out “We are not animals!” Lovers have secrets that keep them apart. These are elements in this thought provoking sci-fi with action, adventure, romance and humor that keeps the reader’s attention from the first page to the last. This is a different kind of sci-fi that brings depth of story content to the reader and provokes questions about current technology.
