The aliens merged one of their own with a human embryo. The hybrid would live to observe the end of Earth in 2035, but his vigor surprised the aliens.
Not From Earth is the story of James Ripley and his adventures on Earth as a gifted hybrid. But Once James understood his origin and mission, an epic struggle ensued.
His love for the Earth conflicted with his primary purpose of observing and recording humanity’s final chapter. Interfering with Earth’s natural destruction was forbidden, but James was of two worlds and never good at following orders of either.
The Oort Cloud is a giant spherical shell surrounding the entire Sol solar system. Oort is a big thick-walled bubble holding trillions of comets. When long-period comets from the cloud approach near-Earth space, they will not return for hundreds of thousands of years.
Humans cannot observe or predict comets from the Oort because of their vast distance and speed. In 1946, a 97-mile wide comet on a path toward Jupiter encountered a cluster of debris altering its orbit and sending it on a direct collision course with Earth. The comet will strike Earth with such violence that no humans will survive.
An advanced civilization from a distant star system tracked the monster comet with a probe orbiting the sun. To study the collision and record the demise of the Earth civilization, they sent an infant observer who merged with an unborn human fetus. The hybrid would live to see the impact in the year 2035.
Once the hybrid understood his origin and mission, an epic struggle ensued. His love for the Earth conflicted with his primary purpose of observing and recording humanity's final chapter. Interfering with the natural evolution of any species, especially the violent, aggressive ones, is forbidden.
Not From Earth is the story of a gifted individual born of two worlds. The merging of these two species produced a life form of such hybrid vigor that it bewildered the aliens. Follow his life's journey, filled with adventure, romance, and wonder.
