This novel is the first in a trilogy. The second is now available and reader submissions will be considered  thecontent of the third.
Eric W Deakin

From the Inside Flap

And here I am, now the most powerful human that I know of, in all of our history. I have, in my hands, the ability to protect all of mankind. Yet should they threaten the viability of their planet, I have the power to destroy them. Should I help them make of themselves what "I," think they should be? As Baron Acton once wrote,"absolute power corrupts absolutely". The immense responsibility of this situation, in which I now find myself, is a huge diversion to my image of self. I have "shelved" this problem. I will do nothing yet. For many years, I had wondered at politicians who did nothing, and remained popular. Now I have a better knowledge of their dilemma. Have I become, as a god? Am I subject to a god? Am I now a part, of the plan, of a godlike power? The God of my childhood began with his god-ship over mankind. He had been an overlord, giving order to everything. It had seemed to me, then, that the universe he created and most of the creatures therein, were well ordered. But mankind was ever a disordered species. The God of the Old Testament tried, very hard, to order mankind into his ethics. He had little success. Eventually he cleansed the world of most all of mankind. A few he chose to continue on under his order and they did so. Very soon mankind was going on full ahead just as before. At least this god was a quick learner. He gave up being an overlord. Mankind would now have to learn from his own mistakes. God would not intervene. He would reward those who did as he ordered in a heavenly afterlife. Some kind of dark brother of God would punish those who disobeyed, in an antithesis of this heaven after their death. The priests of God, as did always the priests of all gods, found great power and profit in this ideology. One could only ascend to the utopia, which waited for them, through the approval of God's church and its priesthoods. Everyone else would be subject to the ravages of the dark anti-God. Those who did not accept the power of God and his priesthood were to be punished. There was no other God. Much of the world went into the dark ages where truth was subject to the approval of the priesthood. The priesthood became more and more powerful in these times. God seemed somehow to be an absent slave of the priesthood, used by them to further their power. The advent of the freedom given science and the resulting industrial revolution, which might never have occurred under priestly rule, reversed all this. God still seemed to be absent but the priests became much less powerful. Mankind was now looking for new leadership and guardianship. Would God rise up again to take this needed place? Could I serve the God of my childhood and take this place in his name? Or should I take this place and impose my own ethics and that of the Axis fearing not the God of my childhood?
