In the 25th century a mysterious group of humanist philosophers rose from among the ranks of those Underground Archivists. They came to be known by the collective name “Mythmakers.” They composed works of rare beauty and symbolic power from which emerged a new behavioral code, a new system of morality based not on arbitrary prescriptions of religious dogma but on the humanist tenets of respect for life, the unity of humankind, and personal responsibility.

An Anniversary Special & Giveaway! "Monster" Is One Year Old!
My novella "Monster Is in the Eye of the Beholder" was published on November 11, 2011 (11/11/11 -- easy to remember!) So Sunday is its first anniversary and in celebration I'm mounting a special on Kindle and on Smashwords. Starting Friday (November 9) and running through next Friday (November 16), the price will be reduced to 99 cents! I'd love to give you a lower price on the paperback with its pretty new cover, but that can't be done. However, for people who still prefer print (and I know there are many of you), the price is only $5.49.

NOW, DOESN'T THAT SOUND LIKE FUN?
Here is a description of the book:
In this dark and edgy first-contact story, a team of anthropologists discovers a species of truly bizarre intelligent lifeforms called the Kal. The team consists of the leader, an experienced, highly respected female Professor of Xenoanthropology and Linguistics; a young female biomedical specialist; and a still younger male, an expert in alien artifacts. Each team member reacts in a different way to the Kal, building toward a disturbing climax and a conclusion with an unsettling twist of perspective.
