I was born in New York City and grew up in its suburbs. I have been a fan of science fiction for over 50 years. I worked as a technical writer in California in the early 1980s, then crossed the great water to Japan. After a few years, I migrated south to Thailand and then Indonesia. I have been living in the hometown of my wife in Central Java since before we married in 1997.
In the middle of the 21st century, a Great Change brings world peace but erases all written history. Political manipulation continues and the economy is depressed by Earth’s inability to compete with an interstellar trading network. A multicultural team of earthlings summons a man from the 20th century to bridge the historical gap and help our planet achieve equality with the humanoid aliens.
