April 2017 brings us a second Book of the Month. (This is totally not because we skipped the BotM post in March.)
Our second Book of the Month for April is GENMOS: Gathering Storms, a young adult science fiction novel by Stephen Coghlan.
I’m writing this letter to you because I want to tell you how my family, the Genmos, became recognized as living beings.
It all started years ago, when my dad used a government contract to create super-soldiers for his own needs. After almost a decade of providing limited success, the project was canceled and we were ordered destroyed. Unwilling to kill his children, dad hid us throughout the country, splitting us up from each other.
Just after my eighth birthday, my oldest sister’s guardian died, and she was forced to live on the streets. After several witnesses reported seeing her, it sparked a race to recover her, and my other siblings, between my father and the agency that had ordered us destroyed. That night began my people’s fight for our rights, our freedom and our very lives.
I’ve collected writings from my siblings and have tried to put them into an order that I hope makes sense for you. This is our story.
Gathering Storms is published by Thurston Howl Publications and is available in paperback from Amazon.
