More About the Author

Barry Woodham spent his working life as a design engineer/draughtsman on the nuclear fusion project and has been an avid reader of science fiction for over fifty years. He found himself with nothing to read one lunchtime and began to write Genesis 2, the saga of the Gnathe.

Many of his colleagues on the project began reading his efforts as quickly as he could finish the new chapters. He was persuaded to carry on and was halfway through the final section when the project drew to a close and he was able to take early retirement before redundancy, through a legacy.

He promised his friends he would continue the story and let them know when he had finished. The joys of early retirement followed - fishing and walking the dogs, and the separation from his old reading colleagues meant the story remained unfinished.

He lost the text through changing computers and it took some effort to retrieve the full story. He knew how Genesis 2 would end, but could never seem to be able to get round to finishing it.

This has now changed over the last 15 years Barry has written the Genesis Project series, which started with Genesis 2, the saga of the Gnathe and now includes Genesis Debt, Genesis Weapon, Genesis Search and the final book in the series - Genesis 3, a new beginning. This story-line takes the reader to the very start of the universe right up to its end and on to a new 'managed' universe. You will meet more strange alien beings in these books than most authors can imagine.
Since then he has written The Elf War, Molock's Wand and is working on Star-Seed set in the same parallel universes that the elf novels are set.

Also on his blog are the Tales of the Ferryman and various ghost stories that can be read, free. See; - http://sci-fiauthor.blogspot.co.uk
"I hope you will enjoy reading all of my work," Barry says, "as much as I have enjoyed writing them!"

Product Description

From the Publisher

Using science fact as well as fiction to tell a remarkable story set in the far future, the author's knowledge and research of scientific details gives the novel an air of realism that enhances the story, making it believable and easy to imagine being a possible future, to show an eventual fate of the human race and of our Solar System. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

I have spent my life-time reading science fiction and now I have decided to write a story that I would liked to have read myself. Many of my friends have read this story in its raw state and enjoyed it then and I hope you will all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I have to say, I've been put off science fiction novels before now. I'm not totally sure why, though it could be because of the sort of things they have in them nowadays.
But this book was great! I actually got it at a sci fi convention (and got it signed, too!) on Friday, and finished it by Monday (I'm a fast reader). This book contains much in the way of descriptions, and I wasn't left with the feeling that things hadn't been explained properly in it.
The alien race - the Gnathe - have a system very similar to a dictatorship. They are a species with three sexes - male, female, and a different sort of female, who act as the rulers, and expect to be served. The third sex are the Brood Mothers - they carry the eggs of the mated male and female, and are able to manipulate the unborn children. The Brood Mothers also choose which males and females are mated to each other.
The book actually starts with a brief description of where mankind is at that point. I won't give much away, but the starting point of the story is with a Brood Mother who sees a different way forward for the Gnathe, but is actually sentenced to death for her different way of thinking. She is in fact rescued, and she and her rescuers are aided by Kamiel, a Guardian to the humans and modified apes who are inside a sort of Habitat as the air on the world is toxic to them.
All in all, I would say that this book is definitely worth buying. It is extremely well-written, and very hard to put down once you start. I can't wait for the next one!

I have read all of Barry's books. I was lucky to have met Barry several years ago at the Star Fleet Ball where he was promoting his first book in the series Genesis 2. Genesis 2 was a fantastic read. I was very impressed with Barry's imagination and the story telling within the book. I could not put it down. If you enjoy sci-fi novels then I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
A fantastic roller coaster of a ride with cleaver mixes of ancient, modern & fantasy technology on an ever increasing scale.
Character & event discriptions no matter how obscure neatly fit into this fast moving volume.
A very good SF read leaving the need to seek out the rest in the Genesis series
