What I Want to Do:


 
New World Works
I've written a new book, a novella, specially designed for lovers of this little blue marble. It's called The Third Awakening and I've been working on it since 1982. It's a grim, sci-fi fantasy parable about the exploitation of Earth and a grim satire of corporate culture, the adventures of Sam Marz and the superior beings who come to save Earth from itself, and human beings from their darker side. I'm hoping it will become a cult classic, a renegade icon for those who will inevitably wrest control of our primary institutions and stewardship forr our planet from dinosaur corporate conglomerates that now rule the Earth.

The Third Awakening is available in print and downloads at http://www.lulu.com/content/268050 (You can preview the book online!). If you like what you see, please tell your friends! Here's a tickler I wrote for the back cover:

To prevent humans from destroying Earth, the Joracians have just evacuated every man, woman and child on the planet. An advanced race of telepaths who have found a way to live in peace and harmony for 100 million years, they take Sam Marz under their wing. Sam has a special gift—one that's not only rare in the universe but unique to Earth. As Sam helps the Joracians in their mighty enterprise, he wins their favor and is initiated into the secret circles of Joracian power. But—all he really wants is—to get with Sylvia!

     "Earth is gone, you may as well face it," Àkbä said. "The entire framework, secular and political, which made events and actions meaningful—all is vanished! If human beings are to avoid becoming extinct, they will have to be retooled for a higher activity and purpose. The seeds of which, it just so happens, lie embedded in your world's art and literature."
     Uh-huh, I thought: Right. At that moment, I felt as if I knew precisely what he was talking about.
     "You, my dear friend, are going to help us replant those seeds."
