Gary Wayne Clark is a writer, musician, and venture capitalist specializing in the development of disruptive innovations. His musical compositions such as Emonesia and Passage to Niburu can be heard streaming from the internet around the world. 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.
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 southern California and 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!
