"Prometheus, you are glad that you have outwitted me and stolen fire... but I will give men as the price for fire an evil thing in which they may all be glad of heart while they embrace their own destruction. " So speaks Zeus, of ancient mythology, to the demi-God Prometheus. Man has given over the power of planning, and mastering of his destiny to machines. The complexity of these machines inevitably leads to miscalculations that have devastating consequences for the planet. After a cataclysm of global magnitude, only some isolated parts of the world remain intact. The remnants of three cultures come together in a sanctuary high in mountains of Nepal, each with their own blueprint for the new-world order. Join Ludec Jarmac and his companions as they race to ensure a future for earth in this thought provoking novel of the very near future.

Editorial Reviews

Judy Gill
Prometheus is an "after-the-holocaust" story with an important difference that renders it unique among stories of this nature. Well-written, carefully plotted, and highly intelligent in its philosophy, it will give readers much to ponder long after they've finished reading it.
