Gary L. Spraggins, author of Perceptual Distortion, spent his youth discovering the world. With a father in the U.S. Air Force, he was on the move frequently. From the mountains in South Carolina to the jungles of the Philippines, Gary explored other environments and cultures too, like Japan and England. He found life in these other cultures, regardless of their origins, to be similar when you took away their social stigma. In spite of their differences, he found that we are all one. After his own tour of duty in the Air Force in the latter years of the Vietnam War, Gary spent many years in the electronics industry. There he received patents for inventions, personal as well as professional. He managed a team of scientists and engineers to develop his most significant patent. That was, until he had debilitating back pain from an old military injury which required surgery. This was a turning point in GaryOs life. During his convalescence, he had a spiritual awakening that inspired him to write Second Coming. Everything he knew as a young man was made clear. Gary had a knowing that God was not this or that but was All of it and that we are the creators of our world. Being a Trekkie from way back, he chose science fiction as the ideal medium to carry the message. Now, Gary is creating a mountain retreat in Central Arizona. Second Coming is a journey to the future where science is worshipped as more powerful than God and cloning is a common occurrence. Technology has run rampant, driven by greedy, control-hungry men who plan to rule forever. The underground religious faction believes that man has forgotten God and takes drastic measures to put the fear of God back into the people of Earth before the ruling classes control everything. Take the journey with Genetic Scientist Dr. Garrett Allen as he comes awake to the truth of life and gets in touch with his own Spirit.
