In the 50,000 years since Ryan Hunt was cremated, human history has taken several catastrophic turns. After nuclear annihilation came the volcanoes, and now there’s a plague bearing down on humanity. It’s going to take something big to save them this time.
And they get it, in the form of a resurrected Hunt, who’s been given a second life. His DNA, it turns out, is the key to rescuing the species. But it won’t be as easy as simply swabbing the inside of his mouth.
To survive in this new world, Hunt has to evade the kidnappers who are after him, hop from planet to planet, and even dust off his tux for a date to a ball. Even more challenging, he needs to navigate the waters with adventurous and beautiful scientist Dr. Kat Winslow, whom adventure seems to follow.
With help from a friendly robot named NORA and a newfound sense of daring, Ryan Hunt is ready to take on the future - whatever it brings.
Gerrit S. Overeem is an IT professional whose passion for science fiction served as inspiration for Second Life of Mr. Hunt. In addition to enjoying Dungeons and Dragons and appearing at charity events as part of the 501st Legion Star Wars Costuming Group, he is also active in a local car club and has a black belt in Nihon Goshin Aikido. He lives with his wife, who has encouraged his interest in writing.
Since the book takes place so far in the future, I needed the reader to know what has occurred since Ryan Hunt's death. I did not want to do a long-winded prologue, so I instead made Chapters 2 and 3 a history lesson. Then I could start Chapter 4 in the present time of the story.
