Book Description

One hundred and seventy years in the future, humans have survived global warming but are still facing the problem of overpopulation. The Free Sealand organization offers an economically and politically viable solution to this problem: floating city-nations. Environmentally however, the cities pose a great danger to the health of the oceans.
An eco-terrorist group known as the Ocean Peace Resistance and militant members of the World Council of Cetaceans work together to stop the development of Sealand cities. World tension mounts and violence increases as the floating cities continue to proliferate and place the oceans in grave peril. Dolphins, whales and humans must find a way to work together to avoid another global climate disaster.
“Sealand 1001” is the newest city to be launched by Free Sealand and targeted by OPR. The planning and execution of an attack on the city is told through the exploits of two of the terrorists, Jackie, an aquaculture expert, and Daniel, a former US Marine working undercover as a commercial fisherman out of Honolulu, Hawaii. We also follow their dolphin counterparts, Power-flukes and Long-breath, as they join the dolphin Rangers and play pivotal roles in the attack. Free Sealand’s perspective unfolds through the eyes of the governor of the city and Rory, an anti-terrorist expert working for the Free Sealand security forces.
The story is fast-paced and gives the author’s view of the future with a plausible blend of science and fantasy. The struggle between human civilization’s careless exploitation of the earth’s resources and nature’s need for balance is a central theme. The author’s positive bias leaves the reader with the hope that a final equilibrium can be reached.

5.0 out of 5 stars Normally I do not read science fiction - this was neat January 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this in print copy, not Kindle, because a friend gave it to me. Normally I would not pick up science fiction on purpose. What a neat story. Who knows what 150 years from now on earth will really look like. Yet, author Raker looks at existing data and technology, develops a clear story line, and forces me to look at environmental issues. I especially like all of the parts with human/animal bonding. One small clarification - If the Grandpa in Lanikai can see a sunset from his deck, he must be looking west and back over the Koolau mountains to see an orange -rose glow. The summary on the cover and the author's biographical statement offer important introductions to the book.

More About the Author

My name is Richard K. Raker. I have lived in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi with my wife and son for twenty-seven years. I grew up on Guam, Okinawa and in South Carolina. I have always loved island life. The sea breezes, clear blue ocean waters, fascinating marine life, and lush tropical forests have always sustained me. I believe that is why these topics and a love for nature, play a central role in most of my writing.
I have ALS, a terminal illness diagnosed in 2006. Prior to that, I worked as an English as a Second Language teacher and then as a computer trainer for a major healthcare organization. Very soon after my diagnosis and a quick disease progression, I found myself paralyzed and bedridden, relying on a ventilator to breathe. I could no longer work, so I spent most of my time reading and watching TV and movies. That got boring relatively quickly. Then, one day I discovered the joy of writing.
First, I struggled through a memoir about the first twenty-five years of my life, telling the story of the events leading up to my decision to move from South Carolina to Japan. It felt good to write. Writing took me away from my everyday troubles and gave me a creative voice that I never knew I had. The memoir, A Remarkable Life, lived by an Ordinary Person was self-published a couple of years ago.
After that, I realized that I had a few more stories that I needed to tell. In fact, I found that I needed to write every day--putting words on to the page somehow helps me define my place in the universe.
In the last two years, I have published four short novels and one short story. It's now 2013, and I am still alive and writing, and perhaps getting better at my craft. My stories are getting longer and more character driven. I hope to complete at least one more novel this year, Narragansett, a historical fiction based on the environmental history of Rhode Island.
I love writing. The two or three hours a day that I spend working on my stories is very therapeutic. I write selfishly. It is fun and gives me a much-needed purpose in life. While I engage in the act of writing, I forget that I am confined to a hospital bed and a breathing machine. Through the stories I tell, I'm able to travel through time and space. I'm able to visit exotic places and share adventures with wonderful friends and characters, human and animal. Writing has taught me that while my physical world may be restricted, my imagination is limitless.
I hope you enjoy my books. Please consider writing a review or sending me your comments to me at rraker@hawaii.rr.com. I'm always looking to improve. With your encouragement, I promise to continue.
Thank you all for your love and support.
