"Encounter One - Static" launches a science fiction trilogy. The characters whose adventures we follow are a small band of research scientists led by the young Dr. Steven Barrett. The team find themselves pitted, with seemingly impossible odds, against superior beings, when after the race known as the Syzzacks arrive on Earth. But how will the planet and humanity survive? How will they change? What will become of mankind and the aliens—and, in fact, the entire universe? Throughout the course of this novel, the events take the reader from life on Earth to remote and mysterious realms of intergalactic space, to wondrous worlds beyond imagining, and back again. It envisions the universe as physical as well as infinitely otherworldly. So, now that you know the Syzzacks have come, can we save ourselves from annihilation? Should we even consider sparing Earth’s intruders if it will save lives? And, what will the decision of one man, Steven Barrett, accomplish to make it all happen?
The answers lie here in "Static."

About the Author
Apart from writing, C. R. Swainward is a visual artist who, even as a child first discovering books and the wonders of deep-Space photography, was as fascinated by storytelling as by the universe itself. The author’s Encounter series, first installment of STATIC, with its ever-expanding vision of the cosmos and its transcendental views of existence, came to mind one evening while the author was star-gazing and considering both the mysteries of the universe and the meaning and purpose of human life. Swainward holds a bachelor’s degree in theology and religious studies, has taught painting and music theory in the West Indies, and now in addition to writing, works as a professional healthcare provider in post-operative surgery.
