The Beta-Earth Chronicles – A New Science-Fiction Series, beginning Fall 2015!
Imagine walking into an ordinary bank on an ordinary day.
Suddenly, your body feels unexpected pain in every cell. When the pain clears, you discover you’re now blind. You’re not where you thought you were. You don’t understand what has happened to you, why you’re being subjected to so many endless experiments, and why you don’t understand a single word you hear.
This is what happens to Dr. Malcolm Renbourn, a young history teacher who slowly learns he’s been dragged across the multi-verse to a parallel Earth.
On that planet, he learns he’s in a slave-holding country, and he’s considered the property of the institute that captured him. He learns Beta Earth is a planet of women as humanity suffers from a plague that kills three out of four male babies their first year.
Does his biology contain the cure to a disease that defines a world? Can Malcolm Renbourn free himself from his captors and find his place on a planet he barely understands?
That’s how the story begins. But the epic quickly expands as Malcolm Renbourn finds himself the center of a tribe of exiles and outcasts made up of his startlingly different and very sexy wives. You’ll meet them in The Blind Alien, the first of a four-part series of eBooks coming from BearManor Media!
“The Blind Alien is a story with a highly original concept, fascinating characters, and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don’t let the sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you – this is a compelling and contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and social classes.” ~ Raymond Benson, former James Bond novelist and author of the Black Stiletto books

Book One – The Blind Alien
Young professor Malcolm Renbourn is captured in a scientific experiment that drags him across the multi-verse from his home planet, Alpha Earth.
After seven torturous months in a Balnakin institute, Malcolm first tries to teach Alpha ways to a racist, slave-holding country, then escapes to freedom, but learns his trials have just begun. He meets a series of very different women who become his Betan wives – Lorei, the prophetess of the goddess Olos; her simple sister Elsbeth; the blue-skin Bar Tine; the towering Joline, and Doret, a mutant offspring of a failed genetic experiment.
Together Tribe Renbourn battles a planet wanting the alien and his children confined for more study before a monstrous disaster strikes Bergarten, the city where Malcolm Renbourn’s second life began.
And in Balnakin, the blame for the disaster is placed on one blind alien.

Book Two – The Blood of Balnakin
In the aftermath of Crater Bergarten, where thousands of Balnakins died in a mysterious explosion, Tribe Renbourn is forced to sail across the Philosea Ocean where they settle in the country of Kirip.
There, Malcolm seeks ways to deflect the planet’s desire to forcibly confine the family while new threats emerge. The tribe meets the Mother-Icealt of Olos, shares prophecies with her, and learns the reasons why Malcolm Renbourn will have an Earth-changing role far greater than anyone expected.
The tribe is captured at sea and fulfills three prophecies that will heal their battles with Balnakin and change a country.

Forced to accept an alliance with an Alman royal tribe to protect his growing family, Malcolm Renbourn becomes the Duce of Bilan, a man responsible for a region of the country of Alma filled with unwanted immigrants.
He must bond with the mutant Ducai of Bercumel, Sasperia Thorwaife, a genetically-enhanced woman with one goal – to bend Tribe Renbourn to her will. At the same time, the Prince of Alma has similar plans of his own. And the Lunta of Alma’s New Dome seeks to take dominance over the country in the name of religion.
Thus, the Renbourns are drawn into a conflict that will split a nation.

Following the former Duce of Bilan, the flotilla comes to the small island country of Hitalec where Lorei and Doret reveal Olos has new, heart-breaking prophecies to fulfill for Tribe Renbourn. They include bonding with the royal house of the country while a new Queen begins her attempts to crush the Renbourns.
But the time has come for all the mysteries to be revealed in yet another voyage across the multi-verse.
