By the author of Philip K. Dick: Remembering Firebright! What if humanoids took refuge on the prison planet Gaea (Earth), after their own planet was destroyed in a war of the distant past? What if Genesis 6 were literally true? And what if dinosaurs walked the Earth alongside people? Ray Nelson, co-author of Philip K. Dick's "The Ganymede Takeover", says: "'Origins' is good stuff, real science fiction, unlike most of the bogus SF on the current market. . . . I would say you not only have an alternate universe good for a sequel or two, but for a long series of novels and short stories. Many a Grand Master has based a whole career on one or two private universes." In the midst of interplanetary war, the survivors of a planet-killing weapon strive to maintain their hierarchical social structure, which is based on a misguided eugenics program. Taking refuge on the primitive planet Earth, they struggle against predatory dinosaurs, as well as alien spacecraft. Second edition, revised and expanded. Part one of three.
