Overview

Not all Alien Encounters are abductions… some are invitations!

What would happen if…

• Space Aliens had their own religion? How would they relate to the cosmos? Would they have as dogmatic religions as humans do? How would they treat unbelievers?

• Space Aliens encountered a human being who is gay, but closeted homosexual? If they discovered his secret, would they reject him, persecute him, or embrace him?

• Space Aliens were completely different from human beings in size and appearance, yet wanted to experience romantic, even sexual love?

• Space Aliens came from a world where they had was no war or conflict, but were relentlessly persecuted by an arrogant neighboring warlike species seeking to eradicate them?

• Space Aliens built a technology based entirely on biology? What if they knew nothing about Radio and TV or electromechanical technology?

• Space Aliens held a secret of life that has eluded mankind for centuries, were willing to share it with humanity, but could not get anyone on Earth’s attention?

These are the some of the questions that are answered in Alien Encounters: The Wroussara Trilogy – Vol 1. Star Hopper.

Synopsis:

Paul, a closeted gay male with a history of religious abuse from a fundamentalist church is plagued with recurring nightmares. They are distortions of old 1950’s science fiction films and he feels he is going insane. But it turns out that his dreams are prophetic, an echo of things to come -- as he discovers when he finds himself inexplicably on board an alien UFO, a living spaceship called a “Star Hopper”.

He meets the intensely curious, highly intelligent, insectoid space aliens, called “Wroussara” (pronounced Roo-Sah-Raw) and learns to communicate with them. They have a precious gift - a biotechnology that can eliminate all human disease and suffering. They are utterly fascinated by the life forms they scan on Earth and wish to interact with them and humanity. They are puzzled that no one on Earth but Paul responds to their psychic calls. Of all mankind, he is unique in his ability to communicate with these amazing insectoid aliens.

Although they are of a bizarre alien appearance, the Wroussara are gentle and kindly, and Paul finds himself strangely attracted to them, much as one might be attracted to a kitten or puppy. The Wroussara have similar feelings, even affection, for Paul. This is entirely new to them, and they invite Paul to visit their home world called: “Wherren” to learn of their life and possibly come up with a way they can meet humanity and experience the wonders of life on Earth.

Things do not go as planned, and the Wroussara are intercepted on their journey by a competing species called the Scaradin (pronounced Ska-Rah-Din), who capture and take them prisoner on board their gigantic colonizing space ship.

These space aliens are very different from the kindly Wroussara. They are physically beautiful, yet equally alien in appearance, and communicate through beautiful musical tones. They have a graceful and elegant technology and high sense of art reflected in all their designs and environment.

But these creatures are psychologically odious, being deceptive, manipulative, uncompassionate, cruel, and arrogant. Their predatory society is fixed on conquest - a philosophy fueled by their rigid, dogmatic religious morality - something oddly similar to what Paul had known in his cruel, fundamentalist church. Of greater and more immediate concern for Paul is the fact that the Scaradin have an intense hatred of the peaceful Wroussara and are determined to eradicate them from existence.

Paul must find a way to help the Wroussara, using all his wits to escape with them from the Scaradin and travel on to the gentle haven of Wherren.

The results of the escape, and an attack by the wicked Scaradin High Priest named “Bosh-Tu”, bring about a change in the nature of the Wroussara forever. Yet, in spite of this, Paul and the Wroussara discover that love and romance is possible among the stars, even with another species, but in a way that is totally unexpected.

    Fascinating and thoughtful. At times, very funny, at others, suspenseful. Great combination of adventure and humor with memorable characters. A good page turner and easy to read. I liked it a lot.
