Ancient Illumination is a science fiction series that explores what would happen if extraterrestrial beings made of light were to come to Earth during the days of Cro-magnon. What would that initial meeting be like? How would cave-people react to glowing sentient beings? That’s basically how I came up with the idea for these books. Now I mixed in some history, legends, and some of my perspectives.
Framing all of that within the trappings of science fiction, first contact, military sci-fi and fantasy, I got to mix in space ships, mutations, socioeconomic influences and other topics. Why? Because I love space, space battles and the nuances of how technology and extreme mutations would affect our society as a whole. If those things intrigue you as they do me then by all means come explore this fictional future with me!

It boasts a pretty impressive cast, the look and feel to it stuck to the motif I believe George Lucas was going for with the original film released in 1977 which was a hybrid of spaghetti western, scifi/fantasy with influences from classic Japanese samurai films. This feels like a nod to the spaghetti westerns trope as we see the protagonist walk in from the cold into a cantina. Swap out the dilating iris doorway for a swinging double door to a saloon and the comparison should be clear. This was a...
