Short Description

Cloning sheep and chimps was only a beginning.


Using Fossil Gene Redemption (FGR), geneticist Kevin G. Harrigan experiments with genes from a frozen "Ice Man". His work prompts Iraqi leader, Ishmail Mon, to provide resources for exciting new research that enables Harrigan's team to regenerate extinct animals and human sub-species from the Ice Ages. But FGR can be the basis for genetic weapons of mass destruction; United States intelligence and defense leaders must act!


Radically distinct from Jurassic Park, Ancient of Genes shows new species regeneration methods… by which the only prophecy held in common among major religions could manifest: Once considered "Junk DNA", personality genes and other traits archive in lineages. These genes await a vector to re-express them, starting a "resurrection cascade" in subsequent generations -- or sabotage genomes, enabling Mon's people to inherit the earth.


Harrigan's frightening choice can lead to redemption… or the terrifying sunset of humanity!

“An engrossing confluence of cutting-edge science, thought-provoking ethics, and storytelling that moves at the pace of a Gatling gun.”

• Lincoln Child, best-selling co-author of The Relic and Mount Dragon


“... Thoroughly compelling.... The climax, containing one of the finest action sequences in recent fiction, approaches apocalyptic dimensions… . While Michael Crichton’s Jurassic stories were interesting, Gallagher ups the ante dramatically, intellectually.”

• Richard J. Woods, OP, author of Mysticism and Prophecy and fiction works.


“A crackerjack adventure chock full of derring-do.... Vast... innovative... far more ambitious [than] the Jurassic Park novels... global in complexity... - and what a cast!... A work of great philosophic complexity... quite readable... first class science fiction... ingenious... compelling....”

• Paleontologia Electronica (Anderson)


“… so vivid that reading becomes a scary, yet thrilling adventure in exploring our own roots... profound … a wonderful job of connecting philosophy and the humanities with science… surprising… intense… sobering…”
