"Fishing for Light by Nathaniel Sewell tells an incredibly entertaining tale that is full of quirky characters and grandiose schemes. I totally enjoyed immersing myself in this satire." BC *blogcritics

From the Author

ForeWord Clarion Reviews

Fishing for LightA Satire
Clarion Review
Science fiction that doesn't take itself too seriously, Fishing for Light is a wildly creative story.
Take a science fiction story with multiple subplots, add a love element and a bit of satire on twenty-first-century American life (WePay for Ebay, and the like), whip in a battle of good verses evil, and you have Fishing for Light
. The use of astronomical events, as well as plausible explanations of space crystals causing DNA mutations, gives the story its grounding and focus.
Professor Quan uses outer-space crystals to manipulate DNA in an effort to make the world a better place and fix the error of his genetically mutated evil daughter Prosperina, who wants to dominate the world. Edward, the story's protagonist, is selected by Quan to right the world, but Prosperina wants to stop him by getting her hands on the space crystals.
Quan perfects an epigenetic improvement-of-mankind formula that he secretly gives to his targets. One of his early dosing targets, administered by his operative, Captain Lovins, is a very transparent attempt at high-context humor. Bill from Arkansas, who is given a dose of engineered epigenetic material, becomes a Rhodes Scholar and learns to play the saxophone. Yes, he is the future President Clinton.

Edward is born at the exact moment of both a winter solstice and a deep-space supernova. According to Quan, this gives his DNA special leadership qualities. With a dose of epigenetic spray, Edward would become a force for positive change in the world. Edward's development from a young boy to an office drone with latent world leadership qualities is hinted at throughout the story. These flashbacks are effective, incidents of loyalty and courage that slowly reveal his personality so that it seems natural when Edward helps with a friend's legal problems. Edward goes to a golf tournament looking for soiled pro items to sell. A successful intermix of subplots takes place on the golf course giving the story more energy.
