Justine Graykin

Justine Graykin is a writer and free-lance philosopher sustained by her deep, abiding faith in Science and Humanity, and the belief that humor is the best anti-gravity device. She lives, writes and putters around her home in rural New Hampshire, occasionally disappearing into the White Mountains with a backpack. Author of Archimedes Nesselrode, a whimsical romantic fantasy written for adults who are weary of adult books (Double Dragon, 2013), her musings appear regularly in the Concord Monitor (the newspaper of NH's state capitol) and on her website at justinegraykin.com. Although she writes in different genres, as well as non-fiction essays, science fiction is her first love. She wrote in diligent solitude for many years, inspired by the likes of Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, and H.P. Lovecraft. Now, her work is being brought out for readers to enjoy.

Archimedes Nesselrode is an artist who "makes things"--no one knows how--whimsical delights encased in plastic cubes which vanish when opened. He lives by himself in a house which his agent and manager, Frank Shekle, refers to as "a chimera farm.” Enter Ms. Vivian Mare, a woman of formidable talents and determination, who is daunted neither by the artist's guardian basilisk nor by the appalling state of the house.
What does the asexual shape-shifting governor of a remote outpost in the swamp have in common with a hermaphrodite native struggling to fit into human society? Much more than either of them expected. United in their mutual dislike and distrust of the humans that dominate their world, their friendship develops into something more, something that might prove dangerous to them both. And when a deadly menace invades from the distant mountains, Shaka Mahdi and Prilock become the key to the survival of the very race they resent so much.
The prototype time/space transport device has been judged by the councils as too dangerous to risk using. Thalesian historian Pi-Sigma Avalon cannot resist the temptation. Just one quick jump, back to Old Earth, the lost world of their past, shrouded in mystery. No one need know. But he stays much longer that he intends, and comes back changed. With him is Dr. Eloise Smith, an Old Earth human who confounds their expectations of that primitive species. His actions, the information he brings back, and Eloise herself, threaten to throw the peaceful, orderly society of Thales into chaos. And if the philosopher monks of Eden are correct, Avalon and Eloise face an unimaginably challenging future which cannot be avoided, because it has already happened.
