About Gary Wayne Clark

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.


Rise of the Chimera
Commander Ryker engages a computer on Genesis 5... "Are you in charge, sir?" "In charge? No, I'm not in charge. I can't say anyone is." "Clarify" "Well, it's like this my little friend. Sometimes, people follow me. Sometimes they don't. Those that do, they usually end up dead. Guess that's why I work alone now. I'm a bounty hunter. That, and to track down the bastard that killed my parents."

For those who like to misspell the words "gratuous" and "clicbes" I would say that ... if you were being attacked by a group of cannibal reptiles that want to kill and eat you maybe you would say some of the the same things..

Too much gratuous profanity and too many clicbes.

This is the riveting second book in what I hope is a series. The unique character development and action packed plot build on the first book as the conflict on Niburu comes to a head. If you are captivated by Sci-Fi, this author caters to your imagination as very few can. You’ll be tempted to read The Devolution Chronicles in one sitting as a result of the engaging presentation of life on the edge in a hostile environment.

Review by: J. Myers on May 06, 2011 :
Wow, the action in this second book of "The Devolution Chronicles" series is literally non-stop, yet the author managed to incorporate humor and character development that keeps it really entertaining. Also includes tons of sly references to everything from military history to classic movies, and intriguing scientific details relating to futuristic weapons, time travel and evolution, or in this case, "devolution". I think it stands on its own as an entertaining read but is best if read after "Passage to Niburu".

This book contains many elements and twists. Not to mention that it is based on a real planet that will be visiting our area next year. It has excitement, love, war, murder, humor, playfulness, cool space stuff, artificial intelligence units that can feel and joke, intrigue, nasty aliens, theories about past earth mysteries, on and on. I loved reading this book. I couldn't put it down. Each time you think you know what will happen it surprises you. Great story.
