CATALYSIS

By Denis McClean

Sci-Fi | eBook


CATALYSIS is already happening. This is Book 1 of the CATALYSIS Trilogy but the story is vast in every sense. It can't be contained in a single genre and demanded and received the conviction of real and diverse people and landscapes. It is unfolding in fact as you read. It actually began yesterday in northern Ethiopia, and this morning it eased effortlessly into a small city in the Arabian semi-desert. Tomorrow it will take you on to places much more and far less familiar as it challenges you to keep up. The present marriage of convenience between devious politics and global finance continues to evolve into a symbiotic relationship that will destroy them both if they divorce, or us if they won't. The unholy products of that union, the status quo of greed and corruption, constantly conspire to separate us from our basic human and civil rights. This is an essential prerequisite for us to quietly embrace our appointed destiny as both commodity and consumer, and so perpetuate their dominion. Tomorrow is next Tuesday or Wednesday, and no further. That's when we finally realise that our children didn't ask to be born into this wickedness, and we really should try harder to fix it for them. We can clearly see public enemy number one, and number two, if we can somehow separate them, but the truth is, we may have left it too long. It seems to have become addicted to our subservient idolatry. Maybe the best we can do is resign ourselves to an imperfect destiny of our own lifetimes locked in negotiations for a better future, so the next generation has something to hope for. As the Global Goliath begins to stagger under the weight of it's unsustainable empires, we must decide if we need a ‘David’ to finish him off, or if we’d do better to exploit his weakness, just as he did ours, and renegotiate that future from a position of comparative strength. We are divided factions and Goliath likes it that way. His future has already arrived, and for him it’s just a matter of consolidation for profitability to stabilise again. While we deliberate, an uninvited stranger seems to be the answer to our prayers, and this would be David takes centre stage to become the penultimate ingredient in a catalytic cocktail for change. As the adversaries size each other up, we wait expectantly for the first hammer blows to fall. With everyone looking up, no-one seems to notice a third but damaged contestant, who simply has to be lost.

There is a lot about me already on my blog and on my site, so I won't bore you by repeating all of here. My background is aviation, which was useful for meeting different people and seeing diverse cultures. Book One of my current trilogy, (CATALYSIS) takes you to some of these places and introduces some people. Book two, (OCHRE) which is due to be released later in the year continues the journey. So that aspect should please those who like to travel, but you're going to go far. Then there's the story which is truly epic. So expansive that you might miss the literature that occasionally flows like poetry, while I challenge some preconceptions. Let's just say that when you read a book of mine, you'll know you were in a book. I liked the little guy and I enjoy empowering those we would normally consider our inferiors. I detest the status quo and I believe evolution is alive and well.
