Against this backdrop of deadly biological rivalry, humankind will fight an inner battle whose outcome is as final--and as brutal--as natural selection itself.Volume One - Natural SelectionIt started as a peaceful visit to his weekend getaway in the Sierra foothills. Hours later teacher Phil Lynch finds himself living a nightmare. Paralyzed and taken prisoner, his body is used as an unwilling host in a bizarre and gruesome series of parasitic infections. As the terrible truth about the alien visitation unfolds, a small group of captives must first understand - then fight for escape from the terror that holds them prisoner.

Their struggle will stretch razor-thin the human will to survive._______________________________Imagine an alien science where tissue, bone, nerves, and muscle are used like we use iron, wood, rubber and wire. Now imagine yourself held captive with hundreds of others by beings who wield this grisly technology as easily as we do hammer and saw- beings whose lineage can be traced through the morally hollow, parasitic branches of natures evolutionary tree. What would you do to survive?

Would you re-draw the boundaries of your own morality to stay alive? What would you compromise?How might you escape? This is the context of Natural Selection, the first of three volumes of the Dominant Species Series of books.Volume Two - Edge EffectsIt is the year 3012. The human incursion begins.40 warp days from Earth is the newly discovered planet, Verdes Revenge - a jungle planet green, thriving, and fertile. Containing a wealth of natural resources, it is the chosen location for a new off-world colony.

Earths enormous colonizing machinery is beginning preparations for the coming human invasion. But by law, the planets flora and fauna must be inventoried for biological hazards before human feet can tread there. An apparent glitch in the system has put the surveys behind schedule - and contractors are already on the planets surface.Biologist Rachel Sanders thinks she has drawn a lucky card when shes hired to perform the biological surveys on Verdes rich ecosystems.

She will soon discover new and diverse species - and long the way reveal a growing threat more perilous than she could ever have imagined._______________________________In this volume of the story we are transported to a new world populated with a lush panoply of plant and animal life. The story takes place in an environment both physically and sociologicallyremoved from our daily experience. With a strong and highly detailed sense of place, the story transports us into a world matchless in its richness and mystery.

Within this context, humankind struggles against perils both inside and outside its tribal milieu.The relationship between humankind and the organic world is still an ever-present theme in the storys narrative. Like the first volume, the story is a voyage of discovery. It is horrific and cerebral at the same time, offering up both thrills and ideas for all to enjoy.Volume Three - Acquired TraitsIt is the year 3014.

A pivotal battle looms.Branded as murderers and forced into hiding in the jungle planets deepest recesses, pilot John Soledad, biologist Rachel Sanders, and medic Donna Applegate survive on their wits, frequent field remedies applied by Donna, and late-night raids on the colonys storage warehouses for needed supplies.While the trio struggles to survive, another threat--one more virulent than the jungles life forms--threatens the very survival of the new colony. Rachels venom-induced visions are telling her something--revealing the terrible nature of the danger--and awakening memories of things and events ancient, dark and monstrous.Dominant Species Volume Four - Bio Diversity coming 4th quarter 2013!The adventure continues in 2013 with the shocking fourth volume in the Dominant Species Series, Bio Diversity.From the AuthorThere is strong language in the story because humans under stress often use such language.

There is no puppy love or adolescent motifs of intimacy in the story. Instead there are very many mature, psychosexual themes that run through all three books. Some are represented symbolically, others described explicitly. There is violence. The story is not PG-13.I heard somewhere that when you set out to write a story that you should write the one you would most like to read yourself.

After a lifelong diet of scary science fiction anything, and endless discussions about what could be with anybody, I think I have done just that. What I didnt plan on was that there would be so much story Id love to read, to write.
