by Richard Sills
In a futuristic society, conflict situations are resolved peacefully. Lanetheros, though also an engaging novel, is a statement against war. Its pages present the reflection of the positive and peaceful alternative to war.
Lanetheros poses answers to age-old questions and those of ages to come. What are beings of other planets like, how do they relate to each other, and how do they solve their conflicts? How do they relate to their thinking computers? What do they think of less advanced planets, like the planet Earth, for instance?
Lanethros is a humorous puzzle. You can read it as a puzzle to be resolved in the second book of the series, Antivion.
