Humanity has evolved over the billions of years since mankind first ventured to the moon.   Cley is an Original, a genetic remake of the oldest known human species and the last of the “Mohegans” due to an attack by the Malign, at least that is what the genetically reengineered Supras insist happened. The Supras consider Cley as an inferior pet, but she knows that her wardens are hiding part of the truth from her. She plans to learn what really happened to her race, but first must escape from her zookeepers. Abetted by an ET, Cley begins her journey to learn to learn what the Malign is and why did this creature commit genocide?

BEYOND INFINITY is a futuristic science fiction tale that predicts the path of physics in a realistic extension of what is known or theorized today. The physics aspects are deftly interwoven as underpins to the exhilarating plot. The marvelous tale combines a coming of age subplot along the lines of Luke in Star Wars with that of a Galactus-like being threatening much of the galaxy.
