Overview

Al Lancaster discovers that defeating the Messiah plasma Alien did not end his troubles in Markan star system as the only Human fighting to survive among thousands of Aliens. He narrowly escapes death by laser at the opening of a memory crystal library on Thixen only to discover that a greedy Alien has unleashed a ‘mind virus’ that turns people who use memcrystals into violent psychotics! Then his lifemate Delo and their Dino babies are nearly killed by the mind virus crime syndicate. Al vows an Honor Fight to eliminate the Alien who threatens the lives of everyone in Markan, but finds his own Guild of Assassins unwilling to help him. Al soon faces an ultimate battle against the praying mantis-like Ketchetkeel Aliens who are somehow linked to the mind virus. He may die. Delo may die. But the mind virus must be killed before the A.I. algors in Markan eliminate every lifeform as a means of protecting themselves from insanity infection!

Meet the Author

T. Jackson King (Tom) is a professional archaeologist and journalist. He writes hard science fiction, anthropological scifi, dark fantasy/horror and contemporary fantasy/magic realism--but that didn't begin until he was 38.

Before then, college years spent in Paris and in Tokyo led Tom into antiwar activism, hanging out with some Japanese hippies and learning how often governments lie to their citizens. The latter lesson led him and a college buddy to publish the Shinjuku Sutra English language underground tabloid in Japan in 1967. That was followed by helping shut down the UT Knoxville campus in 1968 and a bus trip to Washington D.C. for the Second March on Washington where thousands demanded an end to the Vietnam War.

Temporary sanity returned when Tom worked in a radiocarbon lab at UC Riverside and earned an MA degree in archaeology from UCLA. His interests in ancient history, ancient cultures and journalism got him several government agency jobs that paid the bills, led him to roam the raw landscape of the Western United States, and helped him raise three kids.

A funny thing happened on the way to normality. By the time he was 38 and doing federal arky work in Colorado, Tom's first novel STAR TRADERS was a stage play in his head that wouldn't go away. So he wrote it down. It got rejected. His next novel was published as RETREAD SHOP (Warner Books, 1988). It was off to the writing races and Tom's many voyages of imaginative discovery have led to nine published novels, a book of poetry, and a conviction that when humans reach the stars, we will find them crowded with space-going aliens. We will be the New Kids On The Block. This theme appears in much of Tom's short fiction and novel writing.

Tom lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. His other writings can be viewed at http://www.sff.net/people/t-jackson-king.
