The Golden Age Ep. 06: Even in Arcadia

Excerpts from THE GOLDEN AGE, my debut novel from 2001. Arkhaven Comics is also reprinting such excerpts.

In the far future, humans have become as gods: immortal, nigh omnipotent, able to engineer planets, tame solar output, ignite gas giants, and to resculpt body and mind. A trusting son of this glorious future, Phaethon of Radamanthus House, discovers the rulers of the solar system have erased entire centuries from his mind. Like his namesake, he has flown too high, and must be cast down: for he has committed the one act forbidden in his utopian universe, to have ambitions higher than utopia can contain. His quest is to rediscover himself.
