Overview

Jake (Going Home) by David DeRosa

Jake’s life is a merry jaunt around a militant mindset of misusing impossible science.

He’s a seven thousand year old teenager, an extraterrestrial marooned since the Bronze Age, waiting patiently for us to advance in science and social graces. A few unsavory characters know what he is and want what he knows. They have their eyes on him.

At the dawn of the twenty-first century human science is close to offering The Immortal Jake what he needs to get home. While Homeland Security, a rogue C.I.A. agent and a would-be arms dealer all try to steal his research, a handful of trusted friends join him in a race to complete his work.

He’s let secrets slip before and has witnessed ensuing disaster. So, when the arms dealer and the rogue agent get hold of a formula they’re not responsible enough to handle, the ancient kid assumes responsibility for them.

About the Author

About the author Storytelling has always been among my favorite pastimes. Movies, Stage plays, songs and fairytales; I love 'em all. To be wrapped in the pages of a fantasy adventure is inarguably among the greatest mind trips one can take, and all that's needed is a good book and a light to read by. Fiction has a special attraction as the mind sees and feels and lives with the characters through all of their passions and exploits. How can one truly ride on the wings of a dragon except in a fairytale? How better to travel through space and time than in the comfort of an overstuffed chair? Fantasy, of course, is my personal favorite. The only things that are real are the only things that really matter; how people think, how we feel, how we cope when life spirals out of our control. We have heroes to inspire, villains to hate, and breathtaking scenes that can only be imagined. It isn't the stories so much as the characters that involve me. By learning about them I might learn something of myself. That's what great storytelling really is; exploring foreign ideas and strange beliefs in the safety of familiar surroundings. And, the best stories will force us to think. That's a good thing when so often reality discourages it.
