A science fiction adventure:
The maturation of
Romero de Morgan, The Greatest!
Adonis, The Magnificent Cythetic
Lola, The Heart Changeling
Jonto, The Bird-Lizard

Three planets each a vast distance apart from one another are inhabited by Homo sapiens -- humans.
Romero de Morgan, spoiled scion, and Adonis, a synthetically created “perfect” human, come from
Homobirthstone, where lies the
throne of a technically advanced galactic empire.
Lola, daughter of a barbarian, descendant of a past space-wreck on the out-of-the-way planet Abro,
is a would-be priestess
who is sacrificed to The-God-Who-Howls.
Jonto, an intelligent bird-lizard, comes from a planet, Biafra, with such extreme environmental variability
that the only dominant
life form must, instinctively, change probability futures via identifying and releasing key chaos triggers,
a skill unsensed and
unknown to humans. The bird-lizard shares adventures with Romero and Adonis.
Gifted with long-life through various happenstances, the three humans, accompanied by the Biafran
bird-lizard, mature and play
out their intense search for self against a vast background of an unchecked, decadant society and its
apparently magical technology.
Chance has brought them all together on the planet Cairema, where once held sway and dominated an
extremely technologically
advanced civilization long before earth itself was populated by humans.
On Caremia human gene plasma degenerates at each generation, a hidden effect of the still functioning,
but unknown, ancient
technology of the former civilization.
Caremian gods must surely die, if decadence is to reverse!
But so must personal, inner gods!

Meet the Author

Perry A. Chapdelaine, Sr. has been CEO of the Arthritis Trust of America charity since 1982. He writes for the charity under the pen-name of Anthony di Fabio, also works found on Kindle and Nook.
When the work of the English Roger Wyburn-Mason,M.D., Ph.D. and American Jack M. Blount, M.D. quickly got Chapdelaine well from “galloping” rheumatoid arthritis in the early 80s, they, along with dozens of American doctors, formed The Arthritis Trust of America.
Chapdelaine received his BA degree from Iowa State Teachers College Majoring in mathematics and minoring in chemistry, physics and psychology. He received his MA degree from Geoge Peabody College for Teachers majoring in mathematics and psychology.
Chapdelaine taught all levels of mathematics in several colleges or universities. At one university he applied for and received a half million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to help develop Computer Assisted Instruction. Its principles, developed further by others, are now to be found in handheld devices for teaching mathematics and other subjects throughout the world.
He was a psychometrist for the US Air Force, also system analyst when computers were first funded by the Air Force. He also was City Manager of a small city and ran several small mom and pop businesses.
During World War II, the army sent Chapdelaine to the University of West Virginia to become a civil engineer. Six months before graduating he requested transfer overseas to join the physical battle. Unfortunately -- or perhaps fortunately -- the war ended.
