Synopsis of Ancestor

ANCESTOR On a remote island in Lake Superior, scientists struggle to solve the problem of xenotransplantation -- using animal tissue to replace failing human organs. Funded by the biotech firm Genada, Dr. Claus Rhumkorrf seeks to recreate the ancestor of all mammals. By getting back to the root of our creation, Rhumkorrf hopes to create an animal with human internal organs. Rhumkorrf discovers the ancestor, but it is not the small, harmless creature he envisions. His genius gives birth to a fast-growing evil that nature eradicated 250 million years ago -- an evil now on the loose, and very, very hungry.

Reviews of Ancestor


This Book has some interesting elements and holds up very well as an action adventure novel with SF trappings. -- Steve Sawicki, SFRevu

One method I us to judge a Book as good is whether is causes me to lose sleep. This one did, as I always wanted to read just one more chapter. -- Steve Mazey, The Eterntal Night

...a fast-paced, interesting horror novel that begs a sequel. -- The Gravedigger,

There are no real surprises in the plot, but it doesn't matter much; it's still a fun trip. -- Nate Kenyon, Horror World

Any Book that can work a bovine uterus and a sex tape into the plot, however, is certainly worth a look-see. -- Rod Lott, Bookgasm
