PITUS PESTON AND THE GODS OF OMAN

 

PITUS PESTON AND THE GODS OF OMAN is the first book in the PEREGRINATIONS OF PITUS PESTON adventure series.

Imagine a young man who lived two hundred years ago in the primitive world of animal power and manual labor whose destiny seemed to be to work the small family farm along the upper Hudson Valley, but whose intellect soared far above his times and station. This young man dared to court the blasphemous dream of travel to other worlds and peoples out among the stars. His idols were men like Giordano Bruno who was burned for having the same dream. Capability without opportunity has doubtless wasted many an Einstein or Newton in the cotton fields but sometimes opportunity and capability converge, making for great possibilities.

PITUS PESTON AND THE GODS OF OMAN is about a dreamer of cosmic adventure who turned his dreams into reality. He was born into an unlikely time for space flight. When Thomas Jefferson was President the frontier was still east of Buffalo. The only way to reach this distant land was afoot or by horse. But there were other worlds whose time lines of development were not like our own. On some of these worlds the present state of Earth was in their dim past. About the time of the Mayflower, three travelers, exiles from the planet Oman, a world on the opposite spiral arm of Caleeron, their name for the Milky Way, crash land their craft atop a butte in what later became Monument Valley. They were unable to leave Earth and dispersed among humanity to live out their lives.

The year is now 1805, and Pitus Peston, an eighteen year old farmer's son endowed with a linguistic genius, discovers an old wampum belt bearing a strange image. It stirs his soul and he believes that the image on the belt is otherworldly and he determines to uncover its secret. Through an accumulation of clues he works his way toward solving the secret of the gods of Oman.

PITUS PESTON AND THE EYES OF HARNUK

 

PITUS PESTON AND THE EYES OF HARNUK is the second episode in the PEREGRINATIONS OF PITUS PESTON.

Imagine a young man who lived two hundred years ago, whose destiny seemed to be to work the small family farm along the upper Hudson but whose intellect soared far above his times and station. This young man dared to dream a blasphemous dream of travel to worlds and peoples among the stars. Now imagine that he discovered not only a means of fulfilling his dream, but found himself in a quest to find a source of knowledge rivaling that of the Almighty Himself.

Pitus Peston who solved the riddle hidden in a wampum sash of the location of a derelict alien ship atop a butte in what is now Monument Valley, is journeying with his companion Calnoon Atoye Itah, a native of Oman, to this world on the opposite arm of the Milky Way. Atoye, eager to end his long exile and return home hopes to reward his friend Pitus with astounding scenes of his highly advanced civilization.

When they reach their distant goal, they find not the wonders of an advanced civilization but the ruins of war, but a new objective avails itself in the search for Loma's Cube, the seat of accumulated knowledge spanning the eons of the last era before the last Big Bang swallowed it up in the last Big Crunch. They are not alone in this quest. A rival from the planet Haldan, the other faction in what became known as The Thirty-Minutes War, seeks the cube for its secrets of propulsion and weaponry to make possible a new empire engulfing ultimately the whole galaxy.

PITUS PESTON AND THE LOOSE END

 

PITUS PESTON AND THE LOOSE END is the third episode in THE PEREGRINATIONS OF PITUS PESTON adventure series. The time is ten years from now. John Hodiak is living in the original Peston house and finds evidence of Pitus Peston's life among the hidden places of the old house. Legends of ghostly apparitions and hidden gold enter into the plot which is actually the convergence of two story lines; one of John Hodiak on Earth and of Pitus Peston who is across the galaxy.

In GODS OF OMAN, Atoye, Kinar, and Rohab come to Earth to escape from their native world for a treasonous theft of drive programs by Atoye from a military space cruiser allowing him to soup up his own craft.

In the EYES OF HARNUK it was revealed that Kinar discovered one of the eyes was placed on earth an eon ago. The eyes led them to the center of the galaxy where was kept Harnuk's heart, an enormous data base containing the sum of galactic history and technology from the last cosmic era. In hopes of learning the bright futures of both Oman and Earth, they find instead imperial domination for Oman and total destruction for Earth because of something left there by the three travelers centuries ago.

Pitus has to return across the galaxy from Oman in order to reverse this fatal error and prevent global disaster.
