As people struggle to survive in an increasingly hostile climate on Earth, plans are afoot for the preservation of the human race. Mars, already occupied by commercial mining interests, is the only viable option. The Chosen are sent to colonise the new world and germinate the seeds of their new Utopia. But dark forces not only want to halt the plan, they want to see the end of all human life, everywhere. If mankind survives the divinely inspired crusade of death from dogma-driven martyrs, will The Chosen’s new Utopia be the real route to salvation?
From Glen Donaldson on Goodreads: (Full review here)
Enjoyed? I positively feasted on this book!
Move over Isaac Asimov.
Stand aside Arthur C. Clarke.
Tip your hat Frank Herbert.
There’s a new voice and a quite robust imagination lighting up the sci-fi literary cosmos; and one that speaks with a mythically crisp British accent.
Cary Grossman rated it 5 Stars. It was amazing.(Full review here)

Title: The Methuselah Strain
Published by Fantastic Books Publishing 4 May 2015
Finding a suitable life partner from the remnants of mankind isn’t easy for Luce, especially when she discovers that automation tempts them more than flesh.
On an Earth of the not-too-distant future, the Prime Renegade plans to disable automatic systems supporting a dwindling human population, creating the threat of chaos. She seeks a man to love her and to father her child. The usual route of artificial insemination appeals to her no more than the materialistic and hedonistic philosophy that now drives most people. Bent on discovering a real man, she faces barriers even her intellect had not considered. Meanwhile, forces designed to serve mankind develop a sense of superiority: might that ultimately threaten human survival?
