Seaswell Publishing is pleased to introduce its first author:
Barrie Cameron lives in New Zealand and is an Electrical Engineer. Since an early age, he has had an interest in writing. However it is only recently that he has found time to become an author.
Cameron has set his Planetoid Trilogy in the near future. For this, his first novel, he has chosen a hybrid genre of soft and hard science fiction. The novel initially features the realistic human science and technology of the twenty-first century; but there are also issues of psychology and politics. The mid-twenty-first century world is in stress from global warming and a new danger arriving from out of interplanetary space. There is help from an unexpected quarter and new technologies are required. The heroes of the story must then undertake a dangerous mission. Throughout the story, their adventure is clouded by mystery. Yet regardless of the hidden perils that they risk on their journey, they must overcome the greater challenge of the existential threat to humanity and the Earth’s biosphere.
Cameron was encouraged to write his story by recent developments in science, especially in astrophysics and quantum mechanics. But his main driver was the question as to whether a technically advanced civilization could overcome the implied dangers of the Fermi paradox. This question applies not only to whether extraterrestrial empires are hidden amongst the stars of the galaxy but, closer to home, whether our own human civilization has the capability to survive these same dangers.
