Degranon Science Fiction⁄Alternate History by Duane Simolke
ISBN (Paperback) : 978-0595317134
ASIN (Kindle) : B0012NW0CK

In an alternate reality, Earth is the planet Valchondria. No illness exists, gay marriage is legal, and everyone is a person of color. The Iroquois constitution provided the model for a one-world government, partially led by scientists.

However, a group called "the Maintainers" carefully monitors everyone’s speech, actions, and weight. Long ago, the Maintainers provoked a shut-down of the space program, causing scientific advancement to decay.

The brilliant scientist Taldra sees her twin gay sons as the hope for Valchondria's future, but one of them becomes entangled in the cult of Degranon, while the other becomes stranded on the other side of a doorway through time. Can they find their way home and help Taldra save their world?

Winner, StoneWall Society Pride in the Arts Award.

In an alternate reality, an Iroquois woman and her twin gay sons battle shapeshifting aliens. Telius simply wants to marry the man he loves. Argen struggles with the residual effects of a deadly drug addiction. Both twins help their mother face Valchondria’s greatest threats.
