Adam Cain is an alien with an Attitude!
After all, how would you feel if you were abducted by aliens and transported into a strange, new universe away from your home, your family — everything familiar to you? Would it make you happy? Not likely!
Now imagine you’re stronger, faster and more coordinated than every alien you encounter. Would you start kicking some ass? Of course you would!
This is the story of Human superiority in the galaxy, a gritty, realistic profile of a young Navy SEAL who doesn’t like aliens very much – and he makes them pay for disrupting his happy life back on Earth!
Here’s an excerpt:
…Riyad stopped his story and narrowed his eyes at Adam. “You must know by now, my friend, that we Humans have certain advantages over most of the creatures out here. In fact, I understand you bested two Rigorians your first day on Nimor. That is no easy task.”
“I didn’t pick that fight! They challenged me,” Adam said in his defense.
“Oh, I’m not being critical. I’m just pointing out a fact. In the six years I have been out here, I have found creatures who were faster, who were stronger and who were tougher than we are. Some even exhibited remarkable intelligence and coordination. But none combine all these traits into one being like we do. Out here, WE ARE THE SUPERMEN. No, we can’t fly, and we can certainly be killed by the weapons they possess, but none of the creatures I’ve encountered can stand against us in a fair fight.”
Synopsis: Four thousand years ago, the Juireans exterminated the Klin race then used their technology to forge a galactic empire known as the Juirean Expansion. Now it’s revealed that the Klin still exist — and are in hiding somewhere in The Fringe Worlds. But more than that, the Klin have begun to use the Humans for some secret purpose, a fact that could bring about the total annihilation of the Human race. But only the Klin know Earth’s location, contained in the stolen computer core from a derelict Klin starship. Now Adam must race against the Juireans, as well as the Fringe Pirates, to recover the missing computer core — and find his way home. Adam could care less about the centuries-long feud between the Juireans and the Klin. All he wants to do is get home. And if a galactic empire stands in his way — well too bad for them!
Love him or hate him, Adam Cain is about as REAL as it gets.

About the Author
I’m Tom Harris and I write under the name of T.R. Harris simply because there are too many other writers already named Thomas Harris!
The inspiration for The Human Chronicles series came from a T-shirt ad in the old Soldier of Fortune Magazine. It was of a muscle-bound man, holding a smoking gun and standing over a dead dragon-looking thing. The caption read: “I don’t know what it was — but it’s dead!”
I just love that whole concept — of humans not being afraid of anything and, when faced with a challenge as big as the universe, we can overcome anything with a swagger and a wink!
There’s nothing wrong with feeling proud of your race, and I mean The Human Race. The Fringe Worlds introduces the reader to my concept of the practical galactic empire, The Juirean Expansion, and how every advanced race share the same wants, needs and desires. It also is written from the most realistic vantage as possible. Hell, my characters even have to go to the bathroom now and then! Adam Cain, the main character, also has anxiety attacks, is homesick and is really pissed that he’s been yanked out of his comfortable life back on Earth.
As I say, Adam Cain is an alien with an attitude! And he makes everyone around him pay for his bad mood.
The book is a quick and easy read. I hope you enjoy it.
