The MacKenna Saga

 

The story of this tale starts in 1990 when a friend asked me to help with her science fiction novel. After a few years we finished the first book in our series, and had begun the second. Around then, I started searching for inspiration to author 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 read the first half dozen pages in 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. The journals record the story of two families, their descendants, and the over two millennial journey through the history of their worlds. The Mackenna Saga is a story of honor, integrity, betrayal, political intrigue, murder, lies, loss, and love. It is the story of a bond of friendship forged in adversity, survives even when its weakest links in the generational chain breaks the bond.
