Author Spotlight #17 - Jim Reilly

By Jim Reilly


James Connor discovers an alien spacecraft buried along with the remains of early human ancestors. It sets in motion a chain of events that pit religion vs. science for control of man’s beliefs. His actions unwittingly make him a pawn in a mysterious plan for the future of mankind and the universe.

Evolution is a story with an epic plot that addresses the great questions of time: God, Satan and mankind’s role in the universe. The conflict between religion vs. science is a timeless debate that is the backdrop to the story. It involves the discovery of an alienship and influence the aliens had on our earliest ancestors, as well as, their plan for the future of the human race. The characters must deal with the reactions of various nations and cultures caused by the discoveries where paranoia, confusion, reactionism, fears all ring true.

The characters in this story must come to terms with the discovery of a spacecraft and the implications that follow the discovery. It asks where did we come from and where are we going from here. It also asks where does religion and religious text become relevant in the final battle for the universe and the end of time, as man must determine how to defeat the aliens and their plan for mankind.
