The Earth Archivist
Book 5 of the Two Worlds Epic
Gordon E. Abbo
Humanity’s retIt is the century following Earth’s destruction in a nuclear holocaust. Only the rescue of a handful of humans by benevolent aliens prevented the extinction of the human race. The aliens helped the survivors establish a colony on the alien home planet, Tamacra.
Adam McCubbin is the only son of a Tamacran business tycoon. He is torn as to what he will do with his life. His father wants him to choose the family business, but he has a passion for the Earth Archives, where the history of the lost world is stored.
His decision to become an Archivist does not sit well with his father, who cuts him off from his inheritance; nor with his wife, who leaves him. His domestic situation is worsened by the fact that the only professional opening for an archivist is on Ellicron, the second planet of the Epsilon Eridani System.
With much trepidation, he relocates light-years from home. After a period of culture shock, he discovers that he likes his job. It offers him the fulfilment he is looking for, requires frequent interstellar travel, and provides him with opportunities for adventure and some romance.
However, all is not well among the stars. The booming economies of the colony worlds have spawned two mega-corporations who are fighting for dominance in the various interstellar markets. One of these is McCubbin Enterprises, headed by Adam’s father; the same corporation he turned his back on to become an historian.
In the titanic battle of giants, McCubbin Enterprises is losing. While his father’s company is faltering, Pickford Estates, the other competitor, is getting stronger.
