9780985223007: The God Antenna

Imagine a little white pill that can dramatically boost your memory and IQ. Oh, just one thing--it also removes your ability to believe in God...

Welcome to a future where it is the mind of man, rather than his technology, that has been dramatically altered. It is this changed Earth that experiences unusual extraterrestrial visitation.

Set in rustic Greece and Israel, The God Antenna is a human story, a tale set around two opposite men, one who fits into this world of tomorrow while the other is simply unable to come to terms with it. These men walk very different paths, going on very different journeys, each wondrous yet one of science and rationality, the other of chance and religious interpretation.

Literary science fiction with a mythic semblance, this is a story where post-humanity, love and betrayal, artificial intelligence, the duplication of biblical miracles, the oldest alien world in the cosmos, Centaurs from across the void, the origin of the ancient entity we call God, and the astounding philosophical implications of extra-solar life and nature all culminate in a global event unparalleled in all human history.

From the Author:

This novel pays homage to the unique science fiction, fantasy, and science authors and artists who produced distinctive works during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, a special period in time when such creative and scientific works often instilled an inspiring sense of wonder and awe in the mind and heart and imagination of the reader, of which I was one.

As such, this tale of extraterrestrial visitation, despite its mythical-fantasy semblance, is intended by this author to be taken as a work of "speculative fiction," in the attitude of author Robert A. Heinlein's original use of the term, i.e., as a synonym for science fiction that specifically excludes fantasy--science fiction being what is possible and can be, fantasy being what is inherently impossible and can never be.  Speculative fiction thus being a genre that often embraces the improbable made possible and the remarkable sense of wonder that it instills. It is in this spirit that The God Antenna was written.

--Niko Zinovii

From the Inside Flap:

A philosophical science fiction tale of unusual extraterrestrial visitation. The novel targets readers of fantasy and mainstream fiction as well, due to its mythic feel and its unique presentation of the near future being a time when it is the mind of man, rather than his technology, that has been dramatically altered--all due to a tiny white pill, "Little Miracle," which produced the unexpected side effect of eliminating all religious belief. It is this changed Earth that experiences First Contact.

Set is rustic Greece and Israel, the story is grounded soundly to man's past, touched only gently by future technology. It is a human story, the core of the tale set around two opposite men, one who fits into this world of tomorrow, while the other is simply unable to come to terms with it. These men walk very different paths, going on very different journeys, each wondrous yet one of science and rationality, the other of chance and religious interpretation.

Author Niko Zinovii draws upon his education in anthropology and science, and his experience as a screenplay writer, to deliver a scientifically literate, thought provoking novel where the seemingly miraculous and unfathomable clash head-on with science.

Intimate and character based, The God Antenna is nonetheless grand in scope. A story where the duplication of biblical miracles, artificial intelligence, post-humanity, love and betrayal, the oldest alien world in the cosmos, Centaurs from across the void, the origin of the ancient entity we call God, and the astounding philosophical implications of extra-solar life, nature, and science all culminate in a global event unparalleled in all human history.
