“Harvesting Earthlings for Fun and Profit” is the sequel to the 2020 breakthrough novel “It Gives You Strength”. “Strength” followed alien anthropologist Tashan Zho as he traveled to New York on a rescue mission, in 1926 during the height of Prohibition. In NY, Zho was caught between rival bootleggers fighting for control of the New York to Canada smuggling markets. We affectionately refer to “Strength” as “Starman meets Boardwalk Empire”.
In “Harvesting Earthlings for Fun and Profit” it is 1934 and Dr. Zho’s once idyllic planet Dagan is now ruled by a brutal dictator. Zho is now a refugee hiding on the primitive planet Earth to escape Dagan. Of course, in 1934 the United States was in the throes of the Great Depression and Dr. Zho experiences a very different America this trip. The novel also builds the world of Zho’s home planet Dagan, where the violent Dictator Arixn is using an interstellar version of the Roman Coliseum to divert the attention of the citizens of Dagan from the fact that their civil rights have been severely eroded.
Like Strength, “Harvesting Earthlings” is a mashup of historical fiction, science fiction and fantasy. Set in 1934, the fictional characters interact with actual historical characters and events like J. Edgar Hoover, Jack Dempsey, Clark Gable, Edith Cavell, and mobsters John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson.
We are very proud of this book and affectionately call it “Thor Ragnorak meets The Grapes of Wrath”.
