More About the Author

Ilyan Kei Lavanway is a unique asset to the literary world. He is married and has one son who has Down's syndrome. Mr. Lavanway grew up in Wenatchee and Waterville, Washington State. He is the oldest of eight siblings, seven living. He spent his high school summers driving wheat trucks and combines during harvest, earning cash to support his first love, the love of flight. He was an avid private pilot in his teens. Ironically, for all his love of aviation, Mr. Lavanway's fourteen years in the United States Air Force never landed him a flight crew assignment. Nope. He was kicking it subterranean school in a capsule beneath the North Dakota plains as an ICBM launch officer for his first four years of service, followed by a year of really uninteresting work in a vault, on base. His next two years took him up near the Canadian border, to the giant, phased array early warning radar site outside Cavalier, North Dakota. Then, he was off to California. Academic assignments filled the final seven years of his military service. By the time he left active duty, Mr. Lavanway had discovered his passion for writing. Since life has thrown him a few curves that make it impractical for him to return to flying airplanes, Mr. Lavanway has poured his heart into writing. His education includes a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in space studies. Mr. Lavanway's aptitudes for aviation and sciences show in some of his books. His works offer unusual perspectives, giving readers rich depth of thought.

A very interesting and descriptive account on the last days of earth. In general, I'm quite drawn to this type of science fiction. The only thing that would have made this more interesting and perhaps more personal to me is to have told this story from the perspective of a developed character living on the earth. He started to do this a few times (i.e. Johnny, his girl and their fast car), but fell a little short. This was almost like a futuristic-metaphysical James Michener novel without the sub plots of the actual people living in the area he describes. Earth Sink is extremely graphic, which I found a little offensive and extremely dark at times. However,later when I went back to read Revelations, it's not as if you would have to stretch too far for his descriptions to be congruent with the descriptions in the Bible. The last days could be simply horrific for the wicked. This author does better than most describing just how horrific it could be. Really enjoyed his vision regarding biotechnology, quantum computing, artificial intelligences and it's future role for mankind.

Eye opening and thought provoking!!! ...Lavanway's distinct use of imagery keeps the reader enthralled in the book's detailed storyline yet troubled over its apocalyptic predictions. Great read!!!

The moment I started reading it I could not put it down. It's very well-written. Lots of imagery. Very thought-provoking.
Parts of it were scary. The author is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this novel.

A well written book with a fantastic use of imagination, which brings spiritual beliefs to light in an outstanding way. I am still reading the book as we speak and have thoroughly enjoyed it from the beginning. Nice work!!
