About the Author
Working on Invidia has taught me a lot about radiation, mythology, and space travel. Doing more than a few years of research to fill in the details needed to make this book, which now I would like to thank Greg Mcsribbles for filling in the gaps and his help in making a remarkable manuscript. I have lived in Florida for over 20 years now and hope to move back to Alaska soon.

INVIDIA: Looking With Malice based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Invidia: Looking with Malice is a wonderful jump into a world billions light years away. The characters have some good depth enough to make you think you have known them for years. I look forward to seeing more of Mr. Mewborn's work!
I'm not a big reader but when Invidia was suggested to me I said I would give it a shot and was unable to put it down after the first chapter. This book has a really imaginative setting and story plot that captures you right off the bat. Then you get to know the characters and understand their complexities which I felt came together very nicely. All in all I'd say it's definitely a recommendable book if you like sci-fi stuff and enjoy a combination of sarcasm and banter to compliment the seriousness of theme. I'm hoping there will be a sequel to this amazing story.
An alien planet dying from a form of radiation poisoning discovers a microbial cure for the poisoning. Microbes are implanted in the Shee for reversal of the degenerative effects of radiation. However,the microbial cure needs periodic regeneration found only in human hosts. There are two problems for the citizens of the alien planet,Shee'a. First, the hosts are obtained by abduction from Earth. The second problem arises from the limited number of times a "breeder" can regenerate the microbial cure called "Pure" before a breeder dies a painful death. These two problems limit the number of Shee that can be saved from poisoning. Limited resources available for a world near social collapse and destruction raise moral issues of triage...who gets needed resources, who becomes a resource and can the elite quite literally get away with murder? Science fiction? Yes!, Allegory? maybe, a warning? you decide. Invidia: Malice Within
