A tale of boxing, time travel, multiverses, quantum physics, love, loss, pain, redemption, and how you may think you are through with the past, but the past is never through with you.
On June 17, 1970, Jerry Quarry, the most popular fighter on the planet, knocked out unbeaten Mac Foster in Madison Square Garden. Before the main event, 15,951 fans and more than a dozen champions celebrated Jack Dempsey’s 75th birthday. But other things happened that night.
In the not-too-distant future, scientific breakthroughs allow a flamboyant boxing promoter to bring together “genetic holograms” of the sixteen greatest heavyweights in history, fighting on what was the best day of their careers to crown the Heavyweight Champion of the Multiverse. There’s just one glitch. Jack Dempsey can’t be found, and a former Golden Gloves fighter must rescue the tournament by revisiting events from the pivotal night of his life, a night that has haunted him for decades. Spanning 65 years across parallel worlds, “Jerry Quarry Died for Our Sins” is a postmodern genre-blender that poses a primal question many of us have asked ourselves: If we could journey to the past and change just one thing, what would that one thing be?
An aptitude test separates people into three classes at birth. 23-year old Willow is the last Divine on Earth. When she ascends to one of the floating cities, she assumes an identity not her own, and unleashes a virus that kills everyone on board the ship but her. When the dead begin to rise, she must choose to save herself or save the world.
The world was forever changed in 2031 when meteors rained fire down from the heavens, setting Earth ablaze and enshrouding the planet in a thick veil of smoke and dust. Many died in the inferno following the Impact, many more died in the Long Winter that followed. A century has passed since those dark times and new nations have emerged from the ashes of destruction, some more aggressive than others. On the North American continent Grand Guardian Harken, leader of the People’s Republic of America, is mobilizing his war machine as he casts an envious eye on the territory occupied by the League of Free Cities west of the Mississippi. But not everything is as it seems on Earth; there are wheels within wheels. And when the Grand Guardian’s leading scientist entrusts an ancient secret to another, he sets in motion a series of events that will shake the foundations not only of the People’s Republic, but of all humanity.
When thousands of strange lights suddenly and inexplicably appear over major cities worldwide – surprising an unsuspecting public – the world is rapidly plunged into chaos. Mark, a young professor who has recently made a major breakthrough in clean and renewable energy, is on his way to the White House and is stuck in peak hour traffic with his two young children when the first lights begin to drift down, without warning and seemingly out of nowhere. Instinctively realizing that something is wrong, he grabs the kids and attempts to get them to safety.
Meanwhile, the situation across the world quickly deteriorates as word spreads like wildfire that the Rapture had arrived. World governments attempt to take military action when one-by-one the lights make landfall and begin to grow with impunity. Unbeknownst to Mark, the arrival of the lights is connected to his recent discovery as well as events that unfolded on the other side of the galaxy. However, his instinct was right, for not only do the lights pose a threat to the lives of his own family and to the lives of billions more; they represent an almost unstoppable menace the likes of which the world, and the universe, has never seen before.
“Too Creepy. At first I thought this book was one of those regular sci-fi adventure kind of stories. I was wrong it turned into a frightening story. Where a monster who uses religion to trick people and consume them. Scary.”
— Amazon Reader, 5 stars
“This reminded me of old-school sci-fi of the fifties and sixties. It seems the author was probably inspired by Harry Harrison, James Blish, Asimov and other writers of the same era. If you’re feeling nostalgic, this is a great book to get you back into the sci-fi you fell in love with. I’m quite interested to see if there’s more coming.”
— Bronwen, Amazon reader, 4 stars
“Well call me a hog and butcher me for bacon. This old time sci-fi story has a western feel with old time techniques. Somebody give this guy a laptop with a thesaurus quick so he can write another promptly. All my best to your future endeavours as this was a winner.”

About My Daughters, My Clones: 2063 A.D – Triplets, harvested in an artificial womb, each the genetic twin of their mother, can only lead to triple trouble! (Strange Stories Book 8) by C. A. Hewitson:
**Also available in Strange Stories Boxed Set 2**
In the year 2063, the chemical fires that had raged had left the air too polluted to procreate naturally.
For Ma, the decision had been an easy one, when the scientists came up with a new way to further the human race: she ordered triplets, each the identical genetic twin of her, grown in an artificial womb.
The girls – Mary, Patrice and Beth – are breathtaking at thirteen, just as Ma had been. Then tragedy strikes and Mary suddenly dies.
Mary was Ma’s favourite, and Ma feels hard done-by with her remaining two daughters: Patrice – just as pathetic and timid as Ma had been at that age, and Beth: as cold-hearted and unkind as Coal, the man Ma had been forced into marrying by her parents when she was only a teenager.
When Ma wakes earlier one morning and finds Beth asleep next to Coal, she is forced to snap out of her haze of grief and take action: she commands her daughters to move in with her parents, the very people who sacrificed her to Coal to save themselves in this harsh new world.

In eternity, there was no hurry. Humankind is thriving and striving for the stars. Among them stand the Mortalis, flesh and blood beings who can live extensively by xulon, a life-preserving plant that gives health and vitality when ingested. Then there were the Ascended, immortal transcended beings that can reside in both the natural and supernatural elements. “For three hundred years we’ve enjoyed a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity. Without question, we would have continued enjoying the fruits of our labor, but human nature never changes.” It was three hundred years since the Mortalis first began colonizing other worlds across the stars. Stand with Marion, who is now the Supreme Galactic Commander overseeing five hundred colonies between eighty-six- star-systems and commander of an entire battalion of Black Warrior soldiers. Not a woman to be messed with (or to ask what age she is). It has taken much love, loss, blood, and tears to keep the alliance peaceful. Until new enemies threaten to destroy that peace. “The enemy threatens to destroy our way of life. We cannot let this happen. Shortly we’ll be boarding our transports and heading into battle. I will be there to lead you to victory. There will be no mercy because our enemies have shown no mercy!”No prisoners. No begging. No mercy. And in Marion’s case – no control. “Oh, I remember everything… Every wound, every cut, every disappointment. I may heal physically, but emotionally the pain is still there.” Blood for blood. Especially when everything she’s fought so hard for is in danger.

Then there were the Ascended, immortal transcended beings that can reside in both the natural and supernatural elements. Follow Lieutenant Colonel Marion, a two-hundred and something (friendly warning: never ask her real age!) woman about to lead an expedition across the stars to scout and colonize planets. “When angered, her eyes flashed; with a black vengeance that struck her enemies with dread.”She is the third centennial officer and the commander of the famed Black Warrior Battalion, a small squadron elite skilled in every art of battle. And she runs a tight ship. “I want everything to run smoothly once we reach Midway Station. We don’t have room for mistakes on our mission.”But the stars harbor dangerous exotic worlds and alien kingdoms on the brink of war. Soon Marion finds herself and her crew caught up in this political whirlwind, with betrayals, gunshots, loss, and death at every turn. It isn’t long until Marion begins to question her faith and life purpose. The Mortalis can live a long life, but that doesn’t make them immortal. All hands! Battle Stations!

Among them stand the Mortalis, flesh and blood beings who can live extensively by xulon, a life-preserving plant that gives health and vitality when ingested.Preparations to travel to the stars are in its second phase. Follow three hundred-year-old (or so) Lieutenant Colonel Marion Stefanova on her latest mission to Helion 3, a class M planet in the Proxima Zetauri System.“It’s just that my emotions are still a little raw.” Marion is a seasoned commander; she is also seasoned in loss. Her assignments are to shuttle back and forth between the developing colonies in Helion 3 and Roma 2 system. Pleased with the progress, Marion takes a solo shuttle to Roma 2 for a little break. “Little by little, the shaking grew more intense, alarms began sounding, and Marion awoke to the realization that the shuttle was out of control.” Her shuttle sinks into a time-space wormhole that crash lands her back to the nineteenth century. Found by a Lakota tribe who are suspicious of her, Marion helps them against the diseases that have struck them, before setting off in the search for her ship. “…you’re such a long way from home.”“I’d say that’s an understatement,”Between language barriers, capture, social suspicion, imprisonment, and being defenseless in ways that she isn’t accustomed to – Marion struggles to retain her composure in a time that lacked the advanced technologies that she’s accustomed to using. She is relentlessly pursued by Union Officer, Major Thomas Conrad for her futuristic knowledge. One thing is for certain, Marion will do anything to secure her ship and escape back to her allies. It just boils down to her survival skills – and a matter of leverage.

When an interstellar cargo ship crashes in Far East Russia, Morgan “Snap” Slade and his squad of elite super soldiers are sent to recover the valuable cargo. Major Slade’s team, Lightning Squad, believes they are equipped with the most technologically advanced battle armor and weapons on Earth; but soon find out they are little match for the Large Gray’s technology and anti-gravity fighters.
The Large Grays have been on Earth for many years now, stealthily entangling themselves in terrestrial politics and wielding their advanced knowledge as a weapon to manipulate worldly affairs. A leader among them, Nox finds himself commanding a shadow government within the Soviet Union, where he focuses on establishing a New World Order, with him at the helm. When the interstellar cargo ship crashes in Siberia, Nox knows this may be his opportunity to tips the scales of power in his favor.
Nordic aliens, known as Vitahicians, have been working closely with the Top-Secret government agency known as Majestic Twelve for decades. They work in the shadows of underground bases and do not have any diplomatic relations with the Large Gray aliens. The Vitahicians are expecting a long-awaited supply ship, the Impegi, when it unexpectedly crashes into Russian territory.
The Impegi hails from Vitahic, a planet that is over 620 light years from Earth; it could be decades before there can be another shipment. Commander Forte, and a few other survivors are tasked with preserving the valuable cargo until reinforcements can arrive. Deep within the cargo holds of the disgraced Impegi, lies huge quantities of Element 115, which is necessary in the production process of advanced, 7th generation anti-gravity fighters.
Mike Evans, a Vitahician, has been stuck on Earth for over 70 years. He is tired of his mundane existence in underground military bases, and has taken a brief vacation to contemplate his future. At the beach, Mike meets a beautiful woman, and his fate is forever shifted.
Major Slade and Lightning Squad must race to secure the priceless cargo before the Russians and Large Grays seize it for themselves. Will Major Slade and Lightning Squad be able to recover the Element-115? Or will the Russians, aided by the Large Grays, seize the cargo, and control over earth’s skies for generations to come? This action-packed, science fiction thriller is a must read for anyone that loves stories about alien agendas, coverups, shadow governments, conspiracies theories, alternate history, and techno-thrillers.
