Book Description

29 May 2012
The Ghost Wars is a literary science fiction work focused on identity, diversity and the spiritual underpinnings of the nature of good and evil. Set in Vancouver, Canada; our protagonist RCN Captain Billington sees the world from a higher vantage point of a world in which money is no longer man’s ruler, where the health of the planet and the body politic trump all. Alternating between three interconnecting lives, Jason Bowen, Cole Billington and Cecil Smith each have their own individual experiences of being the outlier in their world. Jason’s autistic neurology has found creative expression through the development of an intricately layered inner world. Cole’s bicultural heritage as a despised alien species with a lifespan of five centuries gives him an inherent sense of how autistics view the world. Cole’s war torn childhood on Garconer Colony has left him with his own dislocated inner aspects. Sucked up by a spatial-temporal gravity well; Cole was torn out of his own time and has been working with the Commonwealth Protection Bureau since its inception in nineteen ten. Born in nineteen hundred; Cecelia Smith began working at the CPB in nineteen twenty eight, going by the name Cecil. Cecil’s life as a transgender man parallels Jason’s own gender queer one. The Ghost Wars aims to bring readers a new understanding of the issues surrounding gender variation, atypical neurology and spirituality with a futuristic twist. By utilizing a narrative dialogue reminiscent of Plato’s ‘Republic’, characters discuss issues of gender identity, autistic neurology and the legitimacy of emerging Gnostic cults. Edition 2 has an added time line of the Ghost Wars. 10% of the list price goes to THARCE GULU, Eliza Dushku's charity working with former child soldiers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ghost Wars...a must. 26 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Ghost Wars....by Cole Jacob Davis...is the first book of a new series. It plays on many of the themes found in Torchwood and Doctor Who and leaves us with a very positive feel for the future.
Filled with humour--a few in jokes from Twitter, specificallly from the UK...and for Americans, there are in-jokes from the conspiracy forums, such as Project Avalon.
The main character, Captain Billington can best be described as a Latino version of Captain Jack Harkness. Half Human, half alien, Captain Billington cares deeply about the environment , the arts and helping the homeless. But by no means is he perfect; he lives with the guilt of his teenage transgressions.
There are flashbacks to the nineteen thirties, and the symbology of dreams is significant. Several flashbacks are included-- as well as imagery reminiscent of Buffy's dreams on Buffy The vampire Slayer.
Long story short, if you love Torchwood, Doctor Who and John Barrowman and want a new series to write fanfiction about, The Ghost Wars should be your next stop. Enjoy.
