The year is 1982. Paul Venturi is just an average, socially awkward college freshman hiding his extraterrestrial genesis in the closet, hoping to start a brand new life on campus. Unfortunately, his reemerging telepathy and the shadow of covert government surveillance make fitting in a daunting task. But when an enigmatic Serpent in the guise of a college stoner pressures him to smoke the forbidden weed, Paul is thrust into a mind-bending world of government cover-ups, Gnostic revelations, and dark conspiracies.
Catapulted over the rainbow, Paul lands in the Astral realm of Yin'Dru where competing factions of immortals are locked in a bitter cosmic stalemate waging their own secret Cold War over the destiny of the human race. A reluctant Paul is cast in the starring role of Adam - a higher sentient human groomed to become their celebrity-messiah. However, a sinister faction sees him as the perfect pawn to steer the United States and Soviet Union toward a nuclear Apocalypse.
Compelling and original, "Season of the Serpent" is a thought provoking, multi-layered mix of history, mythology, and science fiction. With flying saucers, quantum physics, and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon," topics both modern and esoteric are effortlessly tied together with a classic rock soundtrack and pop culture references that recall a unique era.
