After releasing Cain's Crusaders with an unacceptable amount of typos and other errors, I have decided to take as much time as is necessary to complete the next book in the series -- Starlight Falls -- and guarantee that it will be typo-free. This means that the next book will not be out until sometime in either late November or early December, 2013. I feel it's important to put out a clean book later, rather than rush something out and risk disappointing my readers. Just rest assured, the book WILL be out before Christmas. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Cain's Crusaders -- the first book of Part Two of The Human Chronicles Saga -- will debut on July 31, 2013.
I know a lot of my fans have been wondering when Part Two would begin -- well now you know! Taking a break after completing the first part of the Saga, I also made a permanent move from the East Coast back to my native California. Unfortunately, it has taken longer than expected to get settled in and back into the swing of writing a series of books. But everything is now back on track and progressing nicely.
Just as a teaser, in Cain's Crusaders, I introduce another alien race which will play a significant role in the events of future books. I also have a new 'power' which Adam acquires that will make him even more-powerful than he was before. Fun stuff! And rest assured, I have not forgotten about the evil and plotting Klin and Kracori, who would like nothing more than to see the entire Human race exterminated down to the very last soul.
But as we find in nearly every instance here on Earth, often our worst enemy is our fellow man, so be looking for Nigel McCarthy to be a continual thorn in the side of Adam and his Crusaders.
Remember: July 31st for Cain's Crusaders, and with the next book out before Christmas, 2013.
Thanks for being fans. I have listened to all your input and hope to give you what you want from an action-packed science fiction adventure series.

More about The Human Chronicles Saga...
The Human Chronicles Saga is a series of novels advancing the premise that Humans, when compared to other races throughout the universe, are about as close to being Supermen as you can get without having supernatural powers.
As it states in Book One, The Fringe Worlds:
We may not be the strongest, or the fastest or the most coordinated, but NO race combines all these traits into one being to such a degree as we do. Out here, WE ARE THE SUPERMEN.
At least that's my opinion.
The inspiration for the series came from various sources, but two prominently come to mind.
The first was from decades ago and a book called Earthblood. It's been such a long time since I read it, but basically the premise is that Humans have certain powers, both of mind and spirit, that other races in the galaxy fear us. We are superior, yet at the time, the main character isn't aware of this. The book made me feel proud to be a Human. Since in reality we have nothing to compare ourselves to, it was a refreshing concept.
The second influence was actually an advertisement for a T-shirt in the old Soldier of Fortune Magazine. It showed a muscle-bound man, holding a smoking gun and standing over a dead dragon-looking thing. The caption read: "I don't know what it was, but it's dead!"
Now this may seem pretty callous and macho, but it does show that Humans can overcome even the scariest, most-deadly and unknown of challenges, and all with a swagger and a wink. There is nothing wrong with this. We have risen to the top of the food chain for a reason. I'm sure that in every new environment we encounter throughout the universe, this will always be the situation. One race of beings will naturally rise to the top. It's just evolution and it's nothing to be ashamed of.
So...if you want to read a story where Humans are the dominate species, where we are to be feared, where we are The Supermen, then The Human Chronicles Saga is for you!
But don't be surprised if the Supermen of The Human Chronicles Saga are more like the movie Hancock rather than Clark Kent. After all, we're still dealing with Human Nature!
