The Human Chronicles Saga - Book 1: The Fringe Worlds
An attitude? Why not?
After all, what would you do if you were abducted by aliens and transported into a strange, new universe away from your home, your family -- everything familiar to you? Would it make you happy? Not likely!
Now imagine you're stronger, faster and more coordinated than every alien species you encounter. Would you start kicking some ass? Of course you would!
This is the story of Human Superiority in the galaxy, a gritty, realistic profile of a young Navy SEAL would doesn't like aliens very much -- and he makes them pay for the bad mood he's in.
As this excerpt explains:
Riyad stopped his story and narrowed his eyes. "You must to know by now, my friend, that we Humans have certain advantages over most of the creatures out here. In fact, as I understand it,you bested two Rigorians your first day on Nimor. That is no easy task."
"I didn't pick that fight--they started it!" Adam said in his defense.
"Oh, I'm not being critical; I'm just pointing out a fact. In the six years I have been out here, I have found creatures who are faster, stronger and tougher than we are. Some even exhibit remarkable intelligence and coordination. Yet none of these creatures combine all these traits into one being like we do. Out here, HUMANS ARE THE SUPERMEN. No, we can't fly, and we can certainly be killed by the weapons they possess. But none of the creatures I've encountered can stand against us in a fair fight."
The Fringe Worlds is the first in The Human Chronicles Saga. Full of adventure, space battles and exotic locales, the books are also laced with street-wise humor and an honest realism not often found in science fiction these days.
