A Science Fiction Adventure
Degranon: A Science Fiction Adventure is a dystopian novel set in an alternate reality. Valchondria (Earth) established a one-world government, using the Iroquois constitution as a model. Centuries later, the military group the Maintainers distorted that vision into a police state that banned space travel and free speech. The Iroquois scientist Taldra challenged the Maintainers, but she and her twin sons became entangled in the cult of Degranon.
Simolke has followed this novel with an action-packed sequel, Sons of Taldra, and he’s currently writing a spin-off. He lives in Lubbock, Texas.
