The Society has been destroyed, but Tsumetai has not given up

The conclusion lies in the rebellion

Remaining agents of the Society have been found in the city of Hong Kong, and it is now up to Kenneth and Savannah to find them and finish what they were tasked to do.

Hong Kong is on the verge of starting a rebellion—what they will gain from this, nobody knows, but Kenneth and Savannah have a feeling that Tsumetai is behind all of it.

Time is of the essence, and they have to act quickly. If they don’t find Tsumetai and stop the rebellion soon, Kenneth and Savannah might end up dead in the 73rd century.

The fourteenth day is just around the corner; will two days be enough to bring an end to all of this? Will there be enough time for them to finally come home?

EXCERPT

“Oh well, if you're here, you might as well come in. I'm Zan Gopal, owner of the Gopal Corporation, the Gopal Complex and so on and so forth. Terribly impressive if you're poor, not at all impressive if you have wealth and power of your own.”

A moment passed before Savannah realized that the elevator connected directly from the reception area to Zan Gopal's personal room. While she considered the large man sitting in front of her, Kenneth emerged from the elevator, putting his hand in Savannah's back pocket again. Savannah glanced at him, trying to figure out why he wanted to do that. He stuck his tongue out at her.

Jolaia followed, then Unquill. Jolaia announced everyone to Zan, and then said, “My apologies for disturbing you. However, there is a matter of grave urgency I wish to discuss with you.”

Zan scratched his chest. He said, “Matters are always urgent, aren't they? People always do everything at breakneck speed. They never sit down to think about what they are doing. That's how people are. Rushing, rushing, and always rushing everywhere. It's all so tiresome.

“Do you know, I spent all morning looking at the glass coffin hoping you wouldn't show up today? Perhaps you'd contracted the measles, I thought. Or got bitten by a mosquito and died. Perhaps the world would implode before I had to listen to you. Yet, here you are, ready, willing and able. So out with it, if you like. Tell me what's brought you here.”

Jolaia seated herself across from Zan. The chair creaked beneath her weight. She said, “There's a rebellion getting ready to happen in this city.”

Meet the Author

G.J. Winters “fell into” writing when a well-meaning teacher of his submitted his Creative Writing assignment for publication in the school paper. The local paper picked up the article and asked G.J. for publishing rights, to which the young G.J. agreed with some hesitation, as he felt “that wasn’t one of my best writings at the time.” The reality was that this article was written when G.J. was a junior in high school.
The article, which was a fictionalized version of a local myth surrounding a famous abandoned house near a swamp, was an assignment turned in as part of a mid-term exam. The teacher, Miss Mendez, thought G.J.’s writing was “exemplary” and showed “natural, raw writing talent for a person his age." The assignment called for “providing details to a local urban myth – provide background, using a local resident’s POV, and close with a vague hint of authenticity and realism."
The story, entitled “The Old Mansion by the Swamp,” appeared in the high school paper as a short story, but was later serialized in the local paper in 6 parts. G.J. added more characters and even a sub-story (which later became a story of its own, “I Was Shirley Massey” – a story which centered on a member of the fictional family who resided in the Massey Mansion in the late 70s and disappeared without a trace).
With the success of both of his original series, G.J. thought to venture into writing longer stories, this time with futuristic themes, as he has always been fascinated with travelling through time, future crimes, apocalyptic themes, and stories set in civilizations from the future.
G.J. identifies with sci-fi writers such as Isaac Asimov (“Kept me awake through most evenings in college.”) and Margaret Peterson Haddix (“My girlfriend at the time had fits of jealousy over my fanatical tendencies towards this author.”).
G.J. holds a degree in Chemistry, is an intern at the R&D division of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, and lives with girlfriend Deidre, a magazine editor.
