Read full description of the books The Gaean Enchantment:The world is going through a Time of Change where science has failed and Gaean earth magic is the new way in which life and survival now work. Oregon archaeologist Thomas and his mage wife Mary embark on a cross-country drive to Virginia to save his three children from the chaos of social breakdown, as national unity disintegrates and local NeoMob or drug Syndicate bosses take over. And Evil incarnate follows them, including a giant leaf monster full of evil from past human sacrifice. But ancient gods, goddesses, sacred mountains, magical groves and totem animals like the bison Black Mane are also awakening, and they will have much to say about the new shape of the world that humans thought they controlled. This is a great book for readers of contemporary dystopia, post-apocalyptic futures, quest adventures, Gaean earth magic, Spirit World stories, Greek mythology, and romance--there are two love stories in this 125,000 word, 374 page novel. And the Greek goddess Artemis appears as a major character.
Read information about the authorT. Jackson King (Tom) is a professional archaeologist and journalist. He writes hard science fiction, anthropological scifi, dark fantasy/horror and contemporary fantasy/magic realism--but that didn't begin until he was 38.
Before then, college years spent in Paris and in Tokyo led Tom into antiwar activism, hanging out with some Japanese hippies and learning how often governments lie to their citizens. The latter lesson led him and a college buddy to publish the Shinjuku Sutra English language underground tabloid in Japan in 1967. That was followed by helping shut down the UT Knoxville campus in 1968 and a bus trip to Washington D.C. for the Second March on Washington where thousands demanded an end to the Vietnam War.
Temporary sanity returned when Tom worked in a radiocarbon lab at UC Riverside and earned an MA degree in archaeology from UCLA. His interests in ancient history, ancient cultures and journalism got him several government agency jobs that paid the bills, led him to roam the raw landscape of the Western United States, and helped him raise three kids.
A funny thing happened on the way to normality. By the time he was 38 and doing federal arky work in Colorado, Tom's first novel STAR TRADERS was a stage play in his head that wouldn't go away. So he wrote it down. It got rejected. His next novel was published as RETREAD SHOP (Warner Books, 1988). It was off to the writing races and Tom's many voyages of imaginative discovery have led to more published novels, a book of poetry, and a conviction that when humans reach the stars, we will find them crowded with space-going aliens. We will be the New Kids On The Block. This theme appears in much of Tom's short fiction and novel writing, and in the world he has built for STAR VIGILANTE.
His published novels are FREEDOM VS. ALIENS (2015), HUMANS VS. ALIENS (2015), EARTH VS. ALIENS (2014), ALIEN ASSASSIN (2014), THE MEMORY SINGER (2014), ANARCHATE VIGILANTE (2014), GALACTIC VIGILANTE (2013), NEBULA VIGILANTE (2013), SPEAKER TO ALIENS (2013), GALACTIC AVATAR (2013), STELLAR ASSASSIN (2013), THE GAEAN ENCHANTMENT (2012), STAR VIGILANTE (2012), LITTLE BROTHER'S WORLD (2010), ANCESTORS WORLD (1996; with A.C. Crispin; 2012) and RETREAD SHOP (1988; 2012). His poetry has appeared in the collection MOTHER EARTH'S STRETCH MARKS (2009). His short stories have appeared in the collection JUDGMENT DAY AND OTHER DREAMS (2009), and in Analog, Pulphouse, Tomorrow, Absolute Magnitude, The Silver Web, VB Tech Journal, Expanse, Aberrations, Figment, Pandora and Midnight Zoo magazines.
Tom lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. His other writings can be viewed at http://www.amazon.com/author/tjackson... and at http://www.tjacksonking.com/.
