Of Earth by David Clemmer

 

The planet Earth is demolished by an alien artificial intelligence. Demolished as in gone completely. Good thing everyone was evacuated by the secret other half of our race on a giant space station, right?

Welcome to the TriSystem: a rich cultural net of sixteen humanoid peoples spread amongst twenty-three planets. They’ve known about us for millennia, have cooperated with our other half in protecting us until we were ready to join their Community of Interspace. However, timing could not be worse: the TriSystem has erupted into rampant conflict, precipitated by the mysterious arrival of the artificial intelligence, called the Sirep Inderak Revorena. The Revorena and its allies, the extremely advanced Kacklonians, seek to strangle the TriSystem for resources—but to what end?

‘Of Earth’ follows the ill-fated Jason Ziredac as he steps further into worlds greater than anything he had ever conceived—and not just literal worlds of alien races and astounding technology. Time will stand Jason between certain peril and the Earthian race, in whom he has always had little faith; Love will test his integrity in his deeds; Life itself will be placed in his hands as a fractured, vulnerable thing.

Maybe our evacuation wasn’t such a good thing after all . . .

Editor’s First Impression

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jan 2, 2013: If Of Earth were a person walking down the street, he’d be ambling unhurriedly along, calling out wisecracks. He’s in no rush, because he’s having too much fun. Oh by the way, there’s a odd silver thing coming that’s going to end the world as we know it. We’ll get there soon enough.
