IMAGO

By Denis McClean

Sci-Fi | eBook


The Imago is the last stage of another miracle of evolution that aspires above all else to transcend its finite watery universe and to fly beyond into a form of heaven, just as we do ours. In that sense, Imago appears to be much closer to its ultimate evolutionary form than we. Maybe we need to catch up on Imago, and further stir evolution within ourselves by singing our own songs of aspiration, simply because we can. Destiny is not deaf to song but is guilty of being far more selective out there in the Draco Constellation than here at home, and even more selective with Grace Reid. Grace celebrates being thirty years old with the gusto typical of any woman who has spent the last twelve years raising a son without his father, while being discredited as a dangerously insane pariah who can’t seem to decide which species she belongs to. But then, it was never going to be easy playing the part of a lone superpower facing down all others that play major and bit parts in the re-incarnation of Global Corruption our status quo politicians would like to call tomorrow. Grace was too naive to occasionally show her fangs in order to maintain the fearful image that her unlikely ownership of a giant starship granted her. The final book of The Catalysis Trilogy further exposes the delusion that we were ever as important as we thought we were in this tiny section of universe that we will most likely just populate temporarily. Destiny will decide our longevity and will not be guided by merit alone, which in our case is probably just as well. The vastly altered reality that we awoke to after Ochre (Book 2) appears ripe for an imposed future that will perpetuate the entropy of chaos and conflict, regardless of who we really are or what we do. But just as there will always be greater and lesser people than us, some of us are either more or less evolved than others. So our conflict has always been between the two species that we have both evolved to become and which can no longer live as one. Surviving that impossible symbiosis was never going to be evolution's automatic gift, and the odds are now being stacked one side. Only a select few have been assured the virtual immortality that comes with unexpected access to limitless stars and automatic protection against extermination by a single cause. Something for those of us who remain behind to ponder with our more mundane and fragile futures.

Born in Dublin, Ireland, Denis McClean is something of a late bloomer. He spent a career or three heavily involved in military, commercial, private and humanitarian branches of aviation in frontline roles like Ground Operations, Operations Control, Dispatch and Senior Management. He quickly established a brand that claimed to deliver the same meticulous attention to detail for all minor, as well as to all the major aspects of all work undertaken, which put him in demand. Being based in different regions of the world brought with it some very significant exposure to many different cultures and he brings this into his writing. Denis always felt he had a calling to the pen but the opportunity only arose in 2012 when he found himself between assignments. His first publication, Book of Plebs was completed in 2012, though he admits that the undertaking was not without its challenges. When asked to elaborate, he offers this. “Anyone can feel they were born to do something, like aviation or police or military service, but you still need an aviation, policing or military education. To progress further, you’ll then need a business and/or management or even a speciality education or degree. Whatever you choose to do, you need to educate yourself to do it so well, that you have a head start in getting where you want to go faster. Writing is no different. Words are just words, but there is a very high level of focus and attention needed. As an Independent author, I had to take responsibility for my own quality assurance, presentation and graphics etc. Anyone might have some great ideas but if there is no organisation, you need to become your own. So it was a learning curve, but I like challenges and I've always liked learning.”
