About this title

Synopsis:

On a lonely Southern California desert road, en route home from an archaeological dig, anthropologist Culley Wisdom experiences a classic alien abduction: his van stalls, his body is immobilized, and he is floated aboard a hovering disk. After writing a book about his experience, which included a sexual encounter with a beautiful alien female who called herself Qaazi, Culley loses both his professorship at Graham College and his wife, and winds up teaching English conversation in Japan.

A decade later, just when Culley has pretty well convinced himself that he’d hallucinated the whole thing, he meets Qaazi again in a Tokyo railroad station, this time disguised as a young Japanese woman. She informs him that not only are his memories correct, but that they conceived a son in the course of his abduction. She goes on to tell the startled expatriate that she’s a dissident who has challenged the "Alien Raj’s" policy of non-interference in "Native" affairs (unless it happens to suit their own needs, which include exploiting human DNA) and wants to live with him and their son as a loving, human-type family. In so doing, she will force the onset of the long-delayed "phase two" in the aliens’ contact agenda: limited, albeit open contact between themselves and the "Natives." But first they must rescue the boy, whom Qaazi has named Adam in honor of the mythical founder of the human race, from an alien "creche."

Along the way, they encounter Culley’s old nemesis at Graham College, astronomy professor Sidney Levine, as well as a wide-eyed young trance-channel named Sally Linker and a Japanese "Man in Black," who works for a race of nasty, insectoid aliens known as the "Others," and who does his best to thwart Qaazi’s plans. They must also outwit both Qaazi’s own people, who are searching high and low for them, and MJ-12, the U.S. Government’s super-secret UFO investigating committee, which is chaired by Nobel laureate Dr. Wilma Gibbs, a brilliant African American scientist, who has devoted her life to understanding the nature of the alien presence.

About the Author:

A native Californian, C. Scott Littleton received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D from UCLA, and has taught anthropology at Occidental College in Los Angeles for many years. He is considered an expert in comparative mythology and folklore, as well as in traditional Japanese culture, having lived and taught in Tokyo on several occasions. Littleton is the author of several scholarly books, including The New Comparative Mythology (3rd Edition, University of California Press, 1982), From Scythia to Camelot: A Radical Reinterpretation of the Legends of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and the Holy Grail (paperback edition, Garland Publishing Inc., 2000), and Understanding Shinto (Oxford University Press, forthcoming), and numerous articles in professional journals. He has also researched the mythological dimensions of the UFO phenomenon, and his article "Divine Rebels, Alien Dissidents: Does the Mythology Surrounding Lucifer, Prometheus, and the Ancient Mesoamerican Deity Quétzalcoatl Reflect a Pro-Human Faction in the ‘Alien Raj’?" has appeared in UFO Magazine. A dedicated runner, cyclist, and body-surfer, Littleton, who has two adult daughters, lives with his wife Mary Ann in Pasadena, CA.
