Blind Alien

Description

"The Blind Alien is a story with a highly original concept, fascinating
characters, and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don't let the
sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you--this is a compelling and
contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and social classes."--Raymond
Benson, Former James Bond novelist and author of the Black Stiletto books

Told with one of the most original styles you'll ever experience, The Blind
Alien begins when Dr. Malcolm Renbourn, a young history teacher, walks into
an ordinary bank on an ordinary day. Suddenly, he feels excruciating pain.
Unexpectedly, he loses his sight and discovers he has been drawn against his
will across the multi-verse to a slave-holding country on a parallel earth.
He doesn't understand a single word he hears, but he soon learns Betan
scientists hope his body carries the cure to an ancient plague that kills 3
out of 4 male babies their first year.

Branded state property, he must escape, but where can a blind man in a
strange world dominated by desperate scientists run? And on a world where
polygamy is the norm, how can a fugitive alien adapt into becoming the
husband of five independent wives who never expected to be the mothers of a
generation a planet hopes carry the genes that will change everything? How
can Tribe Renbourn survive the aftermath of a catastrophic explosion that
kills thousands?

And that's just part of the story.

"A most commendable and unique novel. I can honestly say I have not come
across anything quite like it. The Blind Alien follows the life of an
unremarkable man who by some twist of fate is pulled from his world, into
that of one parallel . . . What follows is a story of rebellion, politics,
love, science, and religion . . . without a doubt, this is an admirably well
crafted piece of work, that was both entertaining and very thought
provoking."--Tosin Coker, author of The Chronicles of Zauba'ah

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
