Quick Overview

As the Prime Renegade plans the disabling of automatic systems that support the dwindling human population, she seeks a man to love and to father her child. The usual route of artificial insemination appeals to her about as much as the materialistic and hedonistic philosophy that now drives most people. And, secretly, forces designed to serve mankind develop a sense of superiority that might threaten human survival.

This science fiction novelette, running to around 26,000 words, is set on Earth some few hundred years in the future. Much has happened to change the planet with which we are familiar, but human beings remain pretty much the mixed-up and flawed creatures we have always been.

Review quotes;

'A Top-Notch Futuristic Novella'

'From the geographical, political, economic and technological changes to the smallest details of everyday life. Aken writes about it all with the confident unhesitating familiarity of one who has lived there.'

'The ending was a complete surprise. Never saw that coming.'

'Aken moves us along the story like a symphony conductor, logically and smoothly. There is an interesting and tantalizing twist at the end of the story. I challenge you to figure it out before you put the book down.'
