Gary Wayne Clark; ¶, ♬ & $ - Novelist, Poet, Grammy® Recording Academy Artist & Venture Capitalist for Creative Destruction.
Gary Wayne Clark is an engineer by training, a venture capitalist by trade, but a storyteller at heart. With interests as varied as Science Fiction, Movie Soundtracks, Poetry and Photography, many divergent projects have sprung to life from his frozen fortress of solitude high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
His Sci-Fi novel series, “The Devolution Chronicles”, is an epic journey from a post apocalyptic Earth to the planet of Niburu where the reader is asked – ‘what if there was a world where man no longer reigned and evolution ran backwards?’ His Haiku / Photography series “High Country Haiku” is a photographic journal of life above eight thousand feet in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It started as a way to capture the native spirit of a simpler life in America’s High Country but devolved into something deeper, something more spiritual, and in the end, provided a glimpse of the path to enlightenment.
As a member of the Grammys® Recording Academy, the hallmark of his stories are critically acclaimed companion soundtracks by his band, Earamas™. Songwriters Gary Wayne Clark and Glen Dale Spreen provide an island of uniqueness amid an ocean of conformity. Together they have quietly been weaving an unexpected genre bending musical tapestry that stretches the boundaries of the imagination. With four albums and two singles, their music can be heard streaming from the cloud in eighty-five countries around the world.
When Gary’s not wandering the Trail of the Ancients, exploring the ruins of Chaco Canyon or traveling among the Hopi and Navajo tribes to share stories, he lives in the High Country of Colorado on his ranch with his wife, a Great Doodle named Neli, 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!
