Writers Inspiring Change feature book: Witches' Gambit: Book One of The Seven Worlds
This is Book One of the Seven Worlds Series, where it all begins, when Earth was threatened with extinction, and three brave humans attempted the dangerous quantum intrusion to face the Council of the Seven Worlds. Aidan Ray, successful attorney—and psychic—secretly communes with the dead in a fascist Christian society that would call her “witch” and wipe her mind. Earth is split into separate warring theocracies who want to dominate the planet. They are on the verge of expanding their conflict into outer space. Michael Good, an executive who likes to live dangerously, leads a secret insurgency in Aidan’s home state. Fate places them together. And together, they must face a crisis that could destroy the Earth. A mediating alien, concerned about the future of their shared universe, has come to Earth. His galaxy is on the verge of making a preemptive strike against Earth, to prevent the spread of a diseased specimen that may have to be exterminated before it infects other worlds—a species that resolves its problems by murdering each other—humans. He ponders if Earth is worth saving? And asks Aidan and Michael to plead humanity’s case to the Council of the Seven Worlds, before the Earth is destroyed. But to do that, they must brave the hazardous passage to another galaxy from which they may never return. Or have anything to return to.
About Charles Freedom Long
Charles Freedom Long writes science fiction about what might be. Psionics, multi-sensory human beings, telepathy, telekinesis, precognition, clairsentience, energy medicine, awareness and ongoing communication between the living and the dead as a fact of daily life, and how that might affect the life and philosophy of a world.
A psychologist who is also a medium, he talks with deceased people all the time. So, with the help of some friends on both sides of the veil called death, he began writing science fiction from a spiritualist point of view.
He has lived and worked in the U.S, Canada, England and Africa, and seen how what we might think is “the way things are” is not necessarily the way other people see it. He’s now happily living the life of a hermit in the boonies of Western New York, with his wife and three Maltese dogs. And finally getting the time to write and read all those books he said he would.
