Fake Query 2

Midpoint, the domed city, home of the last purebreds. In a galaxy where the human race is slowly disappearing in the gene pool, Midpoint fights to remain genetically pure and free from alien influence.

WELCOME TO MIDPOINT

What would you do if you discovered your DNA was no longer human and your children might be born with three eyes? Reynaldo Jones, Sheriff and Immigration Officer for Midpoint Station must answer if he is to find his human love and retain his DNA.

That's the question "Purity of Essence. Purity of Essence." Check out the screenplay of Doctor Strangelove. Words despised in previous generations. But when mankind's genetic heritage is being spread through the alien populations in the Milky Way galaxy, Reynaldo, struggles to keep humanity, human. But many alien cultures need the infusion of human DNA to make them stronger, more aggressive and those aliens are willing to pay, kidnap and if necessary, kill for DNA.

Suddenly Dorisa Odaysa, Reynaldo's lover, tries to kill him and his investigation reveals that she is a not human but a chimera, Want to book the singing trio Chimera? a clone constructed of human and alien DNA. Within hours, the Mayor of Midpoint squelches the investigation and zaps the clone in a nuclear disintegrator. Reynaldo must juggle his diplomatic influence on six planets to find his true human love, discover who is cloning humans and stop them from using clones receptacles to steal human DNA. What he discovers is a conspiracy of madmen What johnny the homicidal maniac character are you? worthy of Doctor Frankenstein and Idi Amin.

"Welcome to Midpoint" is a throwback to the space-operas and westerns of the past, a novel of sweeping action in a future world populated by he-men, Learn all about the most powerful man in the universe. lusty, petticoat-wearing women and avaricious, warlike aliens.

Dave, this query, plot & MC are too well-done and fully formed to not be real!! (Space-opera/Western!!) Anyway, other than the first sentence reading a bit strange to me, I really liked it and laughed especially at"

the Mayor of Midpoint squelches the investigation and zaps the clone in a nuclear disintegrator.

This is very good and I spluttered incontrollably at the Chimera link.

Ohhhh! Dr. Strangelove. Memories.

Love this Dave.

What would you do if you discovered your DNA was no longer human and your children might be born with three eyes? Actually, this kind of stuff freaked me out when I was pregnant. I kept thinking of Alien, and worrying.

Interesting take that alien races want human DNA to become stronger and more aggressive. Very interesting.
