Savage – (Diffusion Book 0)
If you have found this book, the end of the world has already begun.
It's 1868. Samuel Inwood is fulfilling his dream of exploring remote Dutch New Guinea as a naturalist when things go horribly wrong. A savage aboriginal tribe takes him captive, and as Samuel fights to survive, he begins to doubt that he is the civilized man he had thought himself to be. But his personal concerns suddenly become trivial when he realizes the tribe is harboring the greatest discovery in human history, and he finds himself solely responsible for the future of all humanity.
This is Samuel Inwood's story, as told in his own words in his field notebooks. It depicts the events that took place 150 years before those of the novel, Diffusion, but it can also be read as a stand-alone story.
If you have found this book, the end of the world has already begun. Are you prepared to face what the new world might bring?
About Stan C. Smith (Kansas City, Missouri & Kansas Author)
Novels like the Diffusion series have been bottled up in Stan Smith for most of his life. As a kid, he devoured Tarzan and John Carter novels and daydreamed of exploring uncharted jungles. That kid still exists in him today. He and his wife, Trish, have hiked the rainforests of a half dozen tropical countries. They haven't uncovered any ancient world-altering secrets, but then they're not yet finished looking. There is also a sentimental side to this adventurous sci-fi lover. That sentimentality shines in the love stories, Blue Arrow and Parthenium's Year.
Stan taught biology to middle school students for eleven years and then trained teachers to use technology for another eighteen years. When he is not writing, he is usually spending time with their five children and ten grandchildren, or he is out canoeing, hiking, fishing, or hunting in his home state of Missouri.
