Set 50 years from now, Earth is running out of room and resources. In a last-ditch effort, a group of colonists set out to test a lunar colony with the long-term goal of colonizing Mars.
Unfortunately, a genetically engineered virus called LYCCYX breaks out and infects the colonists, turning them into hideous creatures. Our hero’s quest is to deliver the antidote to the people, who now call themselves the Hyans (believing they are the next evolution of humanity).
Will our hero succeed or will he fall at the hand of his best friend and leader of the Hyans?
As a software and systems engineer, I truly love technology; cutting edge technology and how it changes our lives. Sometimes that change is not a positive one.
The idea for the story behind LYCCYX came to me a few years ago and made me wonder what would happen to the world if we actually did run out of resources as the “experts” say will happen if we don’t develop more alternative energy sources.
As of today, all of mankind’s “clean energy” initiatives rely on fossil fuels in one form or another. With the population of Earth growing at an alarming rate and better medical technologies allowing us to live longer, it only stands to reason that we are going to run out of room someday.
Will we be able to get along as a species with less and less personal space and privacy? Most wars throughout history started over a disagreement between two parties who claim to own the same piece of land.
How will we humans deal with such issues 50 years from now? That is what we will explore in the LYCCYX series. As a programmer, I always endeavor to provide the people who use my software with the best experience possible that meets their needs and usually their wants.
Hopefully, I can accomplish this in the world of LYCCYX for you, the reader. It is a coming-of-age story of the human race. My goal is to give you a glimpse into the future, one I believe we are heading to – possibly much sooner than most people realize.
Also, check out my short stories. They fall under the thriller category and are sure to take you on a journey through the perspective of somewhat troubled individuals.
Enjoy the ride,
