I don't want to give away too much of the synopsis away because I’m pretty serious about publishing this book. However given the difficulty of the theme and setting I consider myself a far inferior author lacking both the rhetoric and world experience to carry out the task of precisely conveying the story to the audience. All I am willing to say about the book is that I was searching for something truly science fiction. In my work of special education dealing specifically with social skill analysis I study human behavior. Following in that vein I wanted to create a universe devoid of all human and humanoid appearance. The only thing that connects all these vastly different and complex truly alien aliens in a united galaxy is their ability to express the basic emotions. It’s 2011 now and I’ve been designing each of these truly different alien races with bizarrely different cultures, beliefs, appearances, and methods of communications since 2002. When you look at the Genres and compare them you might also see what I’m getting at. You take simple Fiction and all you are telling the reader is that you are making up a story… Catcher in the Rye is fiction. Than you take something like Science Fiction and you are saying to the reader, okay here’s a story that were’re going to make up based off of plausible science fact and theory. Than you take Fantasy and you’re telling the reader I’m creating my very own world with rules of it’s own and here’s a story within it. In all honesty, so much good science fiction blend into the realm of fantasy because we authors create absurdly unrealistic things that are not based off of scientific theory of fact… and when I say theory I do include such theories of aliens out in the universe, or maybe intelligent energy based life forms, who knows…. The fact is science fiction often blends with fantasy if only minutely. The simple conclusion is that authors do it because it is the easier route. BOTTOM LINE: Would any of you want to read about alien cultures that’s only resemblance to humans are through emotions? If a book had no humans in it would it be too hard to connect with any of the characters?
