A deadly genetic disease...

One man to cure it, one woman to be his conscience.


Released March 2007 from Zumaya Otherworlds

Barcina's xylopoiesis. The disease was dormant in his son's body, ready to burst inside him, waiting for the right trigger. Laslo knew the symptoms by heart: first, incoordination of voluntary movements and aphasia, the loss of the ability to articulate ideas or comprehend spoken language; then, gangrene and blindness.

Laslo rubbed his eyes. Zelimir's nerve endings would begin to die, starting with the toes. Their muscle cells would transform into wooden tissue then rot, forcing the surgeons to amputate. The mutation would creep up to the torso, where it would attack the major organs, shutting them down as it invaded them.

To extend his life expectancy, surgeons would excise the rotting parts, piece by piece, until all that was left of Zelimir was a trunk with a head. Death would come soon after, the pain excruciating, his son blind, unable to express what he felt.

What do you do when someone wants you to save the universe?

JACK METER HAS HAD BETTER DAYS. Besides waking up without the hangover he'd worked hard on the night before, he finds himself kidnapped by aliens who want his services as a Private Investigator. Jack isn't interested: he'd much rather stay drunk so he can forget that Annie, his physicist girlfriend, was killed in an explosion at her lab and died in his arms.

The Thrittene see it differently, and Jack has no choice but to accept the job. As he begins to piece the case together, he realizes everyone lied to him, from the aliens who hired him to his dead girlfriend, who keeps popping up into every world he visits. Soon, Jack uncovers a plot that threatens to destroy his sanity along with the universe.
