Synopsis: SPECULATIVE FICTION NOVEL Middle-east terrorists capture six five-year old polyploid boys from the village of Polysomia to fight as warriors in their country. At five, the boys look deceptively like diploid men, but will soon be nine-foot giants. Thanks to an influenza infection of their diploid parents, the boys carry genes for healing wounds and regenerating limbs, and for synthesizing vitamin C to keep them well. How did kidnappers enter Polysomia that night? Did the gate guard help them find the boys' apartments? Will government agencies help in finding the boys? Legal rights of diploid Homo sapiens do not apply to polyploids. However, thwarting terrorist activities is a concern of the government. Meanwhile, the body of a diploid girl along with a large sum of money in a metal box is found buried in the woods near the Polysomia guardhouse. Did a polyploid kill the girl? If so, why? Is the money a pay-off from the kidnappers? Polyploids are quarantined at Polysomia, and without help from law enforcement must hire someone to find the boys. The investigator they hire from a Yellow Pages listing takes two polyploids with him on the search—Jamil, a six-year old Iranian boy who speaks Farsi, and Simon, a full grown polyploid with violent tendencies. Sequel to Adoption, available in print.

About the Author: Victoria I. Sullivan is an author, botanist and photographer. She studied biology at the University of Miami, has a Ph.D. in biology from Florida State University and held a faculty position in the Department of Biology, University of Louisiana at Lafayette for 20 years. She has published poetry, flash fiction, numerous botanical papers and other nonfiction, and most recently, Adoption, a speculative novel, Why Water Plants Don't Drown, a book for nature lovers, and a photographically illustrated book of poetry, Between Plants and People with Diane Marquart Moore. Edward E. Schilling, a botanist at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, described and named a new species for her writing: "the name Eupatorium sullivaniae honors Dr. Victoria Sullivan, whose extensive work has led to significant advances in our understanding of Eupatorium.” She found in her research that plants in the genus Eupatorium formed highly successful polyploids, and inspired the science fiction in the novels Adoption and Rogue Genes. Sullivan is a resident of Sewanee, Tennessee and winters in New Iberia, Louisiana. Follow Victoria Sullivan on Twitter @vsulli Find Victoria Sullivan on Facebook at http://facebook.com/illusv
