Zyzz is a botany professor at a major university on Venus who gets drawn into a radical environmental group. He marries Zilla, one of his students, and they have two daughters. The group soon finds themselves in big trouble with the authorities as they draw attention to increasing evidence that Venus is in imminent danger, and propose solutions that run counter to the Establishment's interests.

The government moves to quash the outcry, and arrests begin. Some radicals are banished to extra-Venusian penal colonies. As the planet's life-support system goes critical, difficult decisions must be made.

How they resettle in their new home, and struggle to provide food and shelter for themselves amid hostile surroundings shows the strength of a family in transition.

If this sounds familiar, and possible... it is - or could be. A Hundred Lifetimes allegorically brings attention to what could happen to our own lives as Earth's environmental crises deepen.

About the Author

David C. A. Zink grew up in northern Minnesota on his family's fishing resort. Living out in the backwoods, the family diet was mostly what they grew in their garden or caught. Dave fished for northern pike, rock bass, and walleye, and he hunted for venison, squirrel, rabbit, and snapping turtle. An occasional bear would find itself on the menu. Dave spent a lot of time out on the lakes and in the forests.

He attended Lakehead University's School of Forestry in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and earned Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Geography at the University of Winnipeg, with major work in Plant Taxonomy and Biogeography.

David's long career of environmental activism includes 10 years as an Environmental Health Specialist in the U.S. Army's Medical Services Corps; 27 years service with the Washington State Department of Ecology, Washington State University Extension Service as Master Gardener; and an active member the Native Plant Society and other ecological groups.

Dave currently resides near Puget Sound where he serves as an officer in the Tacoma Veterans for Peace organization, and leads hikes and teaches Botany at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.

David Zink has become a beach-comber on the shores of the galactic sea.
