Right Ascension and its sequel, Declination, are science fiction novels that blend action and adventure with philosophical and moral undertones. They invite readers to ponder interesting ethical dilemmas and question their own notions of fairness, honor, and the nature of justice.
Set in the year 3040, Right Ascension examines mankindís place in the Universe, how we ascended to that lofty position, and the horrifying price of that ascension.
Humanityís position of political and technological dominance within the galaxy is suddenly shattered when a sleek alien vessel arrives unexpectedly at Earth. Admiral Daniel Atgard and the crew of the Apocalypse embark on a mission to find these enigmatic aliens, but the focus of the mission quickly turns from finding answers to exacting revenge. Meanwhile, a belligerent species of reptilian warriors, seeking to avenge a previous defeat at the hands of the human-controlled United Confederation of Planets, takes this opportunity to plan an all-out assault on Earth. Faced with overwhelming odds and the terrible knowledge of mankindís most horrifying secret, Daniel must choose between honor ... and humanityís very survival.
"A morality play transformed into high adventure and that's a working definition of science fiction at its best."
