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.


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.

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.
