Jon Saboe has written a novel combining the “mythologies of ancient civilizations with the intrigue of hard science fiction” (from the publisher’s review) which is available on

He kindly writes that he was partially inspired by We are of course too modest to believe that. Jon did not ask us to mention his book but we thought we’d post a link to Amazon in case anyone enjoys that kind of fiction. We have not had an opportunity to read it, but it did receive five stars from one reviewer.

Here is the Publisher’s description of the book. Thanks Jon for letting us know about the book and for the kind words….good luck with it…

“Why is humanity dying?It is now one hundred years since the Great Awakening, and the human race is finally colonizing the world with new settlements and centers of commerce. Reu-Nathor, High Minister of the Citadel, announces an expedition to explore their new world, and Peleg is commissioned as Chief Cartographer aboard the Urbat.

Peleg’s core beliefs are challenged and his sense of reality is undermined by the new cultures and tremendous tragedies he encounters during his twelve-year voyage. But he has also been given a secret mission to discover the answer to the one question that no one dares to ask aloud: Why is the human race dying?

What he discovers forces Peleg to re-evaluate all he has ever known-and also provides him with staggering revelations that will determine the eternal destiny of the entire human race!

The Days of Peleg is an action-filled, yet thought provoking epic which combines the enigmas and mythologies of ancient civilizations with the intrigue of hard science fiction. Issues as diverse as origins, linguistics, and phenomenology are concealed within an exciting narrative that boasts diverse characters embarked on an unimaginable journey.

You will never think of ancient man in the same way again. The Days of Peleg provides an exhilarating yet entertaining look at who we once were-and who we may one day become.
