Overview

Sometime in the near future, a baby is born that defies all the known medical laws. Genetically, his doctors say he is "all wrong," because they have no medical terms for his condition. They maintain that he should not live, yet he does. He and a few others like him are born with DNA patterns that, according to medical knowledge, should not exist. Yet, they do exist and their unique powers seem super human--but are they? Joshua and the Golden Children begin an adventure into the realm of human consciousness and maybe even into discovering the secrets of creation itself. They face prejudice, fear, superstition and even death to bring hope for Mankind's future. [Cover art Dirk A. Wolf]

Editorial Reviews

Barry Hunter
In addition to being an up and coming author, Joan is a mother of five and the editor/publisher of the terrific ezine Millennium Science Fiction & Fantasy. Being able to do all of these things and write is amazing. She has produced an amazing book as well. Sam and Laura are an interracial couple and when their child is born with a golden skin tone and from that moment on Sam knows that Joshua is a special child. He is extremely intelligent and able to heal to some degree.

When Jo asked me to review this book, I had read a large number of her short stories and wasn't worried about writing the review of her first full-length novel--now I am. This book is so good, so incredibly good, that I have to restrain myself or I would be pouring gallons of superlatives on the screen. Strongly laced with unswerving honesty and unexpected touches of humor, irony, and pathos, her writing is a heady potion--and is addicting.
David Hepplewhite
Sound of the Ram's Horn is a clever mix of Millennium hoo-ha and biblical prophesy. Sometime in the very near future, a baby boy is born that flaunts all known medical laws. Doctors are amazed. Little Joshua's DNA defies all known existing medical patterns. Who is this Golden Child? Is he the nest logical step in human evolution or perhaps even mankind's last chance at divinity?
