The MacKenna Saga

 

 

The story of my discovery starts in 1991 when a friend asked me to help with her science fiction novel. After a few years we finished one, had begun the second, and I started searching for an idea to create my own science fiction series. I stumbled upon and elderly gentleman claiming to have records left on Earth by explorers stranded on our world for a short time. I took a look and was barely into the first volume when I knew I had to tell these stories. The old gent who introduced me to these histories gave me xeroxed copies of the volumes with one proviso, I would show them to no one else, and return them when I finished. The MacKenna Saga is the translation and rendering in my own words of family records dating back further then I ever thought possible from a place I never imagined. These records tell the story of two families, their descendants, and their over two millennial journey through history. This is a story of honor, betrayal, political intrigue, murder, lies, loss, and love. It is the story of a bond of friendship forged in adversity, that survives even its weakest links in the generational chain of its decendents. Discovery
