About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

On an ancient Earth rapidly becoming inhospitable, the Altants-a race of hyperintelligent, six-fingered beings-make plans to leave the treacherous surface and go where it's safe: underwater. But they don't go there alone. In the interest of preserving the tribes of proto-humans still dwelling above the surface (and maintaining control over a desirable source of labor), they bring 20 fertile pairs from each race to a specially designed observation center. Then the volunteer captives-known as Darks, Blues, Browns, Pinks and Purples-start making demands. What happens next might just make the Atlants wish they never meddled in the affairs of supposedly "lesser" life forms.

A fascinating work of science fiction, Earth: The Forgiving Sphere is a powerfully imagined alternative history rich with sociological implications. At its core is a message of humanity's unbridled will to succeed no matter the odds on its quest for survival.

Deftly constructed at 88 pages, Earth: The Forgiving Sphere is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Science Fiction & Fantasy category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Earth meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $7.95.

Additionally, Earth can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
