Game for Life by Ian Allan Burnett

Game for Life – The Game Revealed

This is the story of the last player left in this, the game of life. A game that is played by the gods of Olympus to decide on who would rule over mankind for the next 2,000 years. The story is centered on John the player and Prometheus his Rememberer that helps him understand the game. There are many rules to the game and John has to learn them, some he has to remember from past lives. John must do battle against the Omen and win, or, Zeus, who has the current rule, must turn over all of humanity to Hades, for 2000 years, making it like hell on earth.

About the Author

Ian Allan Burnett is a first-generation Canadian of Scottish descent. Born in Prince Edward Island, he was raised in a newspaper publishing family.  Stories were something that he grew up with and loved. Some stories were funny, some were sad, some were downright scary, and he loved hearing every one of them as often as they were told.

Ian’s life is a montage of experiences and professions. From newspaper publisher to soldier, from a salesman to a mortgage broker. He now has a chance to do what he has always wanted to do, and that is to be a writer of his own stories, ones that can be shared through his books with others.

Ian is married and has three children and three grandchildren. He now lives in Belleville Ontario.

The Future of Life by Peter Popper

The Universe is alive. It requires living, biological organisms to grow and reproduce itself. Life is evolving, ordered information that resides not only in all organisms but also at the surface of the universe. Humans are advanced forms of living information carriers. If we wish to survive and to contribute to the living universe we must protect and advance life. This could be best achieved by expanding peacefully into our galaxy and beyond, while we learn to better understand and work together with other advanced species on our planet. The Milky Way is our playground.
