The End of Days is the fi rst book in the Birth of the Gods series. The planet Mars is running out of breathable air. Since the asteroid strike, the government has built 127 gigantic plastic domes for the people to live in. Now, however, even the domes can’t save them. Thoth Strabo, a college history instructor, fi nally fi nds the perfect man. She has a winning lottery ticket to board the starship that will take her away from this dying planet, but her lover, Levant Amarna, draws a loser. Thoth decides to stay on Mars with Levant and face the end together. She gives her ticket to one of her students, Naomi Nefera, so this teenage girl can escape her abusive parents. The Secret Police arrested Aten Imhotep’s son for protesting. Though Aten’s position in the Mars Space Administration guarantees his family can board the starship, his son, Amun, has not been released. John Bacon grew up on Lake Champlain in the Adirondacks of northern New York. When he was seventeen years old, he wanted to be a writer. However, John knew he had to fi nd a way to make a secure living and raise a family. He began his college education at the University of New York in Albany and fi nished at Adrian College in southern Michigan. After graduate school at Wayne State University, John taught English in the Detroit suburbs for 33 years. When he retired, he fi nally started his writing career. He has three children and six grandchildren, as well as a gray and white, seven-toed cat named Hank. John resides with his wife, Patt, in northern Michigan during the summer months and Florida during the winter. As the family waits, the last shuttle to the starship prepares for launch.
