The Populators by Gregory St. John Taylor

"What do you mean the wrong planet?" Timin, the God of Evmin asked his cousin, Kranis, the God of Tallmere.

"I was only off a couple of million light years," Kranis whined, "What's a little distance, anyway? Besides, we're family..." he added.

They both knew the order of things. First you get a planet to form itself, wait for an indigenous life form to develop, modify it to the Universe's standard for humans, seed it with celestial genes, parent the population, distribute it throughout the Universe, gather up the results and take them back to the Kova. A planet's a planet.

Timin scowled, "Everyone knows how the Universe works. You create spaceships in the natural form of a planet or moon and you get the job done and move on. But it's the WRONG planet."

Kranis studied his cousin and said, "My sycoss is bigger than your sycoss. I have big Tallmere and you have little Evmin. I seed, you populate. Your illustrious father, Sashwa-He Ontine, the supreme power in the Universe is contemplating what to do. He said not to tell your mother until he comes up with an answer.

Timin smiled knowingly, "Size doesn't matter, cousin."

"It depends on who you ask, cousin," Kranis shot back.

Timin sighed, "It's still the wrong planet."

The story of this book is simple, humorous, and fun;, it is filled with universal facts, and has a happy ending. Enjoy Kranis and Timin, Arlonis, the God of the wrong planet, Ersa, the Lords of the Land, the Altergotts, Scribes and others in this science fiction gem.

Take a light-hearted romp through a serious topic - how did we come to inhabit our own rock in the Universe, and why.

About the Author

Gregory St. John Taylor is indescribable, but we will try. He is a 6-foot, 71-year old, white, male, American professional with a ponytail and a beard. Some say he is a left-over Hippie, and in many ways, he is. In order to give you a handle on Greg, we will start with literary accomplishments. He has 139 e-Works in the Internet marketplace, as well as on his nine websites, one of which is a complete, online novel, a free read at The breakdown includes: 14 novels, 11 novellas, 19 novelettes, 6 plays, 10 poetry works, 23 short novels, 11 flash fiction pieces, 7 enterprise books, 10 junior cookbooks, and in the sensual & erotic category, 5 novelettes, and 7 short novels. Add 5 cartooned e-Pieces, 1 English grammar book with his wife, Liz, 3 non-fiction textbooks, 1 diabetes case study, as well as his popular historical science fiction series “Valiant Scatter” involving the inanimate expressions of sunken navy ships, particularly those lost during World War II. At this juncture, there are 5 published. He believes his guardian angel is one of these ships, HMS Glowworm H92, a British destroyer lost in 1940. He writes drama, humor, mystery, poetics, and experiments with new forms of expression. When considering style, which normally eludes him, it is thought that he is a latter-day Modernist stuck in a stream-of-consciousness rut proposing stories in a slice-of-life sequence. He is a technical writer, illustrator, editor; sketch artist; fine artist; playwright; caricaturist; cartoonist; and graphics designer. “I have written over 3,000,000 words of fiction, and this number is only the beginning,” he says. He is an alumnus of the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, a graduate of Penn State University and served in the United States Air Force, 1966-1970. He isn’t all business, and as a skier, was fortunate enough to ski the Alps while stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany, 1966-1969. Greg became an accomplished horseman (English) as well as a polo player. Because of attending Admiral Farragut Academy in his youth, he became a sailor of both sailing vessels and power. Greg has been a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, Alpha Delta chapter, Penn State, since 1964, a husband since 1976, a father since 1980, and a grandfather since 2002. At 71, he thinks the flag is close to holy, that veterans should be cherished, and that war should be outlawed. This attitude is reflected in his work. As you can see, he is totally indescribable.
