As the Earth struggles to survive, the first genetically enhanced humans are born to help search the cosmos for new resources, but soon cloned man and the humans spawn a new species, one that is physically and mentally stronger than either of their creators – the Neosapiens. Not all of these “mutants” seek peace and soon a brutal, bloody war wages across interstellar space. The only ones who can stop them are Joseph and the Mutant Killers.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Watching sci-fi and fantasy movies, and anime of the 1980’s and 90’s was a huge inspiration. I also remember running home after school and putting the needle on the record of 2001: A Space Odyssey’s soundtrack and thinking of cool sci-fi scenarios and characters.
How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
Science fiction is something that hasn’t happened yet… so it’s up to the narrator to display it to the readers.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Joseph and the Mutant Killers is something I started 25 years ago while in Middle School. Of course it has gone through different variations in that time, but I think what it has evolved into is something fun and special.
Few humans survived the last great Earth war – Armageddon.
Scientists, anticipating the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust, had taken refuge in underground bunkers,taking all the knowledge and technology of Earth with them. Politicians, the military, and the rich who could buy a spot in the safe haven of these shelters, quickly followed.
The rich and the politicians were just extra baggage. Their money and the privileges to which they were accustomed did not exist in the devastation and chaos that ruled after Armageddon, so together the scientists and the military forged the future of Earth. They had nothing to lose and they let no one stand in their way.
The new order looked within the solar system to expand humankind’s quest for new resources and new places to live. To quickly and efficiently explore the cosmos, the remnants of Earth used cloned man, a stronger and more proficient version of a human.
In the late 21st century, the first genetic copies were born. Because of their genetic enhancement, clones were physically stronger than their human “parent” in every way. They were able to use all of their bodies, brains included, to an amazing capacity.
With their superior brain power, the clones made great strides in all the sciences, especially in astro-telepathy and in astro-physics. With this new technology, it took a full man crew of clones approximately 200 days to reach Saturn’s moon, Titan. The view of Planet X, light years from Earth, became clearer from this vantage point, and Earth planned explorations outside its solar system. With new astro-technology, scientists and astronomers performed tests. Long distance photographs showed the thickness and size of Planet X’s moons; measurements helped determine what materials made up the planet’s clouds, atmosphere, and interior; cloned man scanned the planet for any form of energy. It proved to be parallel to Earth.
Humans had explored and colonized other locations in their solar system – the Earth’s moon, satellites around Mars and Venus, and the moon Titan. Now they were ready to move onto inter-galactic exploration. An elite exploration team of clones – scientists and construction workers – were transported to make Planet X livable for the last remaining humans of Earth. It would become another “new world” colonized by man at the expense of cloned human life.
About the Author:
In 2001 I published my first book – MIKAYLA BOOK ONE. Recently I made an attempt at Sci-Fi with JOSEPH AND THE MUTANT KILLERS. I also worked on a couple of screenplays and a comic book. I hope to have a 13th Anniversary Edition of Mikayla out in 2015, along with MIKAYLA BOOK TWO.
JohnnyVeins.com is a blog I write where I share my views on my favorite works of horror.
