The Clone Soldiers Chronicles follows a family over those 100 years, from the current epigenetically modified human, to true, and hopefully evolved mutant humans…the new dominant species. In Book I – EpiGenes, our own current society must deal with the newly emerging field of Econo-genetics- who gets genetically altered and at what price?
Will it be only the wealthy? Book II- Gene Designers, tells the love story of Dina, a natural mutant, and Dorian, a Gene Designer-synthesized clone. Book III – Gene Drifters tell us what happens when two mutants have kids, and those mutations “take.” The earth is now hot, too hot for up-top living.
Roxanne Smoot hauls the Tran-Pacific Underwater Tunnel, a plasmon lined causeway deep beneath the ocean, connecting San Francisco to Tokyo and on to Hong Kong. She a normal, one of the few remaining, and stays safe running those rig hauls.
But pirates attempt a rig-jack, almost killing her and her co-pilot. Leo Songtain, the CEO of Stemworm has a thing for her, and not as a best buddy- he’s set a bounty for her safe delivery, and competition is intense. In this teeming under-ocean metropolis, no one is safe. Leo’s legal counselor, Max plans to poison the workers’ food supply, eliminate Roxanne, and take over the clone soldier Black Market.
Luckily, an elusive Mossad spy, Michael Segev discovers the plot. In a race against time, he must save the workers and exile Max to #5, the vast, rebel fortress where the mutant population, the Gene Drifters are hiding…waiting for a mutant war. Max will be exiled to the dark world of the Uns.About The Clone Soldier Chronicles and the AuthorI am first and foremost a research Professor of Biochemistry.
My area of research is in the eye, hence the eye on all five of the Clone Soldier Chronicles novels. For over 32 years in the lab, I have watched the change in the human species…some from my own research into the delivery of enzymes into the human eye using nanoparticles (https://www.k-state.edu/bmb/department...).The central theme to The Clone Soldier Chronicles is that change, and the question…will normal humans become extinct? Will we scientists be able to extend life, fix genetic defects, and make perfect humans, and, will they still be humans?
The answer is mostly yes, but some no’s. We will still be mostly human, but unless we stop the progress of Econo-medicine, there will be levels of humans- there will be those who can and cannot afford the fix. We already see that now…individuals in third world countries are blind from cataracts, while we can afford the fix. And in first world countries, some go blind from macular degeneration while others can afford the biologicals. And now, we scientists can change human genetics.This is the central theme of The Clone Soldier Chronicles.
And while I have tried to make it funny at times, the topics are very real. The first book, Epigenes begins in current times, with a flu pandemic, structuring of economic zones, and rationing of medicines. It is during that time that humans become epigenetically modified. That’s when your DNA becomes modified from your environment, including from what you eat. Those with access to enough medicines and foods become different from the rest of the population.In book two, a class of super scientists emerges, the senior Gene Designers, those licensed to modify and clone humans.
But the rulers just know they can control the situation…keep those clones from escaping.Book three, the one you have just examined, is called Gene Drifters. That is the process of genetic drift- it is the change in DNA which can occur from contact with life, or in the next generation.
It is what takes, becomes permanent enough to be part of an altered order.
