Several generations ago, survivors of a complex apocalypse banned what they blamed for their civilization’s end: religions as instigators of violence. But human nature survived. People with shared belief systems created ethnicities – and prejudices and conflicts reappeared. Erica and Joel grew up in the Fellowship of Abisjamo.
The emotional bond Erica and Joel create trips on their convictions about their ethnicity’s traditions. Erica feels enriched by them, but she’s among the elite of the Fellowship. Joel protects his dignity, which he sees would be at risk if he were obliged to conform. Their love story spans twenty years on the backdrop of the hatreds and violence born as members of another ethnicity endure a no-man’s-land of border strife. Joel, as a photojournalist, brings that tragedy into the public eye. 
Other reporters expose only the rebels’ aggression, which accelerates the longer their plight is ignored. When background events hit close to home, Joel makes the world hear their tears.

2nd Edition

Tony Weber spent his first fifteen years in the sophisticated bunker his parents built when fire ravaged the American farm belt. Raised by their Navajo mother, Evie and her younger brother, Frank, survived in a dam. When Tony finds them, he and Evie discover sex together and build a loving bond. The trio surmounts tribulations until Frank reaches puberty. Then a crisis explodes.

Leading the remnant of urban USA, Jack Sinclair becomes Tony’s antagonist at every level. To forge a new nation, Tony, Evie and Jack, with Frank at the periphery, must each define what they value most. They intend not to repeat Before mistakes.


On the colony of Evavere, created in space 200 years ago, an unrestrained Matriarch dominates the closed society. Two leaders intend to unseat her. One of the two from the commune that confines Sensorially Enhanced Xenobreeds: Mia, who has delved deep for a sense of personal dignity in a life of degradation and abuse. The other rebel is of the colony’s hierarchy—Zane Donahue, owner of the energy resources. To undermine the Matriarch, Mia and Zane expose how the colony understands itself.


The entirely artificial Evavere altered human neurodevelopment. That gave the Matriarch a means to control society. She authorizes citizens’ hiring of SEXes, as assists in achieving arousal. Everyone has been conditioned to accept all that. Mia opens eyes and minds. But will that force the Matriarch to cede authority? Not without violence.
