Gary Wayne Clark; ¶, ♬ & $ - Novelist, Poet, Grammy® Recording Academy Artist & Venture Capitalist for Creative Destruction.
A writer, musician, and venture capitalist specializing in the development of disruptive innovations, Clark's musical compositions as "Emonesia", "Passage to Niburu" and "Rise of the Chimera" can be heard streaming from the internet around the world. His poetry / photography series "High Country Haiku", transports the reader to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where secrets are revealed amid the murmuring voices of the ancients along the Continental Divide.
Formerly the managing partner of a biotech accelerator, it was there in a university laboratory that he created new transgenic organisms by splicing together the genes of multiple species… and began to ponder the scientific and ethical implications of artificial life that spawned his SciFi book and musical soundtrack series, "The Devolution Chronicles."
Nestled high in the mountains of Colorado is home base for the eclectic songwriting duo known as Earamas™, one the best-kept musical secrets since Dan Fogelberg. Critically acclaimed as “brilliant composers and undisputed geniuses behind the controls of a sound board,” it comes as no surprise to discover that one of the duo, Glen Dale Spreen, wrote and conducted arrangements for many of Fogelberg’s hits.
In the world of Indie Rock, Gary Wayne Clark and Glen Dale Spreen (aka Earamas™) stand alone as an island of uniqueness amid an ocean of conformity. Spreen is an industry veteran arranger, producer and conductor whose notable musical collaborations include Elvis Presley, Dan Fogelberg and B.J Thomas; Clark is an award awaiting author, composer and former bass player / vocalist for a gritty east coast rock band best known as ‘one of North Carolina's loudest bands’.
The stark musical diversity of these two Grammy® Recording Academy Members just may be the genesis for their musical alchemy. Their most recent cinematic soundtrack “Rise of the Chimera”, inspired by the Sci-Fi book series “The Devolution Chronicles” authored by Clark, received 5 Star Reviews: “With ethereal soundscapes, ambient storytelling, pulsating electronica and theatrical drama, fans of sci-fi and exceptional music will be in unbridled bliss. Rise of the Chimera is a musical and literary work of art with a clean, clear sound that is second to none.”
Building on a solid fan base in the UK, Earamas™ has quietly been weaving an unexpected genre bending musical tapestry in the US that seems well equipped to penetrate the Film and Video Game world as they stretch the boundaries of the imagination.
Most recently, he was a member of the Board of Governors of the Tech Coast Angels, overseeing private investments in advanced technologies such as bioengineering, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, synthetic genes and biowarfare. He lives in the mountains of Colorado with his wife and the spirit of his shapeshifting interspecies translator, a telepathic Great Dane named Raz.

Passage to Niburu is the first book of a set of two. The story starts on Earth, with a number of very strange and apparently unrelated abductions. All the abductees are brought together and blasted into space, on the way to a moon station. When they are threatened by a missile, things become precarious for the crew of the moon-shuttle and interesting for the reader. A lieutenant who is not who he claims to be is a bonus to the perils of the people on board.
If you like fast-paced action, diverse characters and interesting creatures that not only come from outer space, true science, witty quips and also ethical questions, then Passage to Niburu is the book for you. It is followed by the book Rise of the Chimera (of which a review will follow as soon as I have read it).

This was a fun read! Fast-paced and exciting, with an entertaining ensemble of characters. Interesting mix of mythology and science, but with lots of action that keeps things moving. It leaves you wanting to know what happens next, so please hurry with the next book!
