About J. Richard Jacobs:

†Well, hello to you and welcome. Iím J. Richard Jacobs, but you can call me "J". Iíve been an avid and active amateur astronomer since my "first light" through a telescope in 1947 (is he that old?) and began writing professional level in 1956. Technical writing, copy writing and technical illustration were the income generators until 1965, when I†turned my attention to†naval architecture. There was a brief (28+ year) hiatus in my writing while I spent my time doing the science and engineering involved in†the†largest moving†structures on Earth, although I continued to write papers and articles on applied math, science, engineering, design,†and astronomy.

These days, now that Iím "retired," I write Science Fiction in both the hard and soft varieties. I tend to cross genre a lot because of the way I feel about populating a story with reachable, touchable characters with all their strengths, weaknesses, successes, failures and foibles. I write Fantasy, too, but Iíve never managed to do it successfully in novel lengths--just canít seem to hurdle that short story wall, but I have a lot of fun with the short stories I write. Usually in an urban setting. Iíve tried my hand at Horror, but, for some reason, Iíve had trouble with that, too. Someday, when Iím in a particularly nasty mood, I may be able to do it. In the meantime, my horror pieces tend to be very short...and funny. Oh, well...I guess Iím stuck with Humorous Horror, again usually in an urban setting.

The first review of this book is on its way. When it arrives it will be included here (good or bad)...

First review of XENOGENESIS is now in and I am delighted...


"Xenogenesis is one of those rare books that manages to catch even the most jaded of sci-fi readers off-guard. Somewhere between the description of cities in stratified levels of wealth and the injection of nano-machines, we realize we are somewhere between the world we inhabit and the world we only dream about, which makes the entire book something beyond a simple novel of escape. This combination of biotechnology and space travel with a hefty dose of hard-boiled detective fiction in the character of Patrick Dalworthy allows Jacobs to create a work that is both fantastic and close to home, one that tackles the subject of what it truly means to be human in a rapidly advancing world and answer it with aplomb.

Jamie A. Hughes"

What makes this review doubly important to me is that it comes from the very person who did the editing. That means she had looked at the book with a hypercritical eye before she did the review.

Book 2 Of The Rain Trilogy

J. Richard Jacobs

Click For Book Page and Excerpt

Genres: Science Fiction, Thrillers/Suspense

Available Formats to Download: MOBI EPUB MS Word PDF MS Reader RTF 

Book 2, Maelstrom, serves as a bridge between books 1 and 3 of the trilogy. It is short, barely a novella, and may be read as a stand-alone. This book provides filler information so that you, the reader, may understand what occurred to bring about the cultural and technological changes you will find in the third instalment, Book 3: Tapper Tom, Mooch, and the Traveler. The first book is solid science fiction based in fact and real possibility. The third book is an adventure, still science fiction, but based more in conjecture, fun and action.

First alien contact. Weíve dreamed of what that may be like over a long time and several answers have been proffered. None of them have been as bizarre as this. None of them taxed the imagination as much as "Ancient Whispers from Tomorrow" does. It is difficult enough to take in the idea of coming face to face with something truly alien, but this book gives us a ringside seat to just such an event. Walk the regolith of Mars and see the "thing at North Head City." If you dare.

XENOGENESIS is a tale of change; inexorable and inevitable. Human beings are always craving change but when it comes it is frightening . . . Sometimes to the point that we would prefer death.

Pat Dalworthy is a tracker, ex-pilot cadet in space corps and a dabbler in physics. As a Tracker, a hunter of people who would rather not be found, he is the best there is in inner system and, to hear him tell it, outer system, too. One of the problems with being the best is that you sometimes get much, much more than you bargained for.
