You may know by now that I really like SF books. So, when I got an opportunity to interview author Dr. George H. Elder, I jumped at it, as I wanted to know how SF authors go about creating their worlds, the science and all the things that make SF books wonderful. So, lets get to it, I can’t wait!
Interview with Dr. George H. Elder, author of the Genesis Continuum Series
Describe your book? What genre would you classify it into?
Amazon classified the Genesis series as Sci-Fi Adventure. The book is basically a quest story, with the key twist being that it is set at the end of time. The universe is dissolving in an entropic whimper, although many of the extant species of the time are desperate to kick-start another cycle. The question is, how? Ancient legends speak of a being of unimaginable power who once united the entire universe for an unforgettable moment. However, this “Seeker” was a very flawed being, one who exterminated over ninety-nine percent of his own kind. He locked himself in perpetual dormancy to contain his savagery, and his location was lost over the passing eons.
Missions are sent to find the missing Seeker, but some are diverted by unknown forces. One such mission ends up on a seemingly primitive planet, the home of a stone-age culture called the Labateen. Here we meet Kara, the outcast daughter of a Labateen noble. She encounters the misdirected mission, and soon finds herself as part of its crew. Thus begins Kara’s journey to find the missing Seeker. She will go through deadly battles, be aboard titanic ships, and learn that nearly everything she believed was a lie. In the end, she wants to have never been born. Then she shall arise from the ashes… but how and why would be telling.
