The world enters an epochal winter. Stripped bare of resources and driven to ecological ruin, humanity is poised for a population collapse from which it will never recover. Determined to save us from extinction, the great polymath Tapan Ramachandran embarks on a project to preserve the human genome through the eons – Startomb. But the world we awake to is not the one we remember. Dominated with new orders of life, new dangers, and ruled by a new master.
I’ve developed the Startomb concept on and off over the last 8 years. Originally envisioned as an animated movie, it has changed format to both a comic and a novel. Part of the fun of this projects is developing the alien ecosystem of the deep future, some 500 million years in the future.
