CHRONOLOGICAL MEMORANDUM

 

The Ancient Origins series of books run sequentially in time, year on year. Within each volume, however, a multitude of characters, located in various parts of the world, may experience events simultaneously despite their narrative being separated by a significant number of chapters. In certain instances, some character timelines may be interrupted in order for other characters’ tales to be told, for them only to resume at a later stage in the book despite minimal time passing in their life. If the reader is prepared for such deferrals in narrative it will serve to let the book’s structure and chapters flow as intended.

 

 

 

Dedication

2041 Sanctuary: Genesis is dedicated to those who fight the good fight.

AUTHOR NOTE

 

Please be aware
Genesis
was never intended to exist, as I originally planned to conclude
2041 Sanctuary
(which began in
Dark Descent
) with a single volume. However, as I wrote
Let There Be Light
it became clear my characters had other ideas and the completed book, with appendices, was one thousand, three hundred and fifty pages long. Due to paperback constraints, and trying to keep weight and thickness down while preserving font size, it was decided, after much deliberation, to split the book in two.

I was loath to go down this route for a number of reasons, most prevalent being I didn't want to interrupt the flow of the read and secondly, and perhaps more importantly, I didn't want it to appear like a money-making exercise. However, unlike the paperbacks, I was at least able to half the price of the e-books, due to the minimal production costs, when compared to their hard copy counterparts.

Therefore the story that begins in
Let There Be Light
concludes in
Genesis
, and
2041 Sanctuary
comprises three books (or parts) and they are as follows:

 

2041 Sanctuary (1: Dark Descent)

2041 Sanctuary (2: Let There Be Light)

2041 Sanctuary (3: Genesis)

 

For more detail on my deliberations behind this decision, please visit the website: www.Sancturian.com

 


 

In the blackest pits, or emptiest of voids, there is always a guiding light; it’s just up to us to find it.

FACT:

 

On the 31st of October, 2015, an asteroid (possibly a dead comet) with the designation TB145, shot past close to Earth at eighty thousand miles an hour. This rock measured approximately half a kilometre in diameter and its impact on our planet would have had the power to devastate a whole continent. The worrying thing is, due to the unusual nature of this asteroid’s solar orbit, TB145 was only discovered
three weeks
prior to its flypast of our planet.
That an object of this scale evaded our notice highlights the tenuous nature of our existence on the Earth’s surface and opens up the questions, why is there no mechanism in place to detect these threats? Why aren’t our governments uniting to combat them? And perhaps most importantly, how many more dark comets are out there waiting to strike?

 

On the 8
th
January 2011 an asteroid with the potential to impact Earth in 2040 was discovered by the Mount Lemmon Survey. This near-Earth object was given the designation, 2011 AG5.
