My name is unimportant, I am simply called the Maker. The Earth has been devastated by a third World War that saw over 6 billion people annihilated and the planetary ecosystem marred beyond recognition. My sole task was to restore it. Using three-dimensional replication technology that I perfected for both inorganic and organic duplication, I have been able to restore much of what was lost. But now I am dying, and a replacement must be found to continue my work. Without that, the world will slip again into an endless morass of conflict and destruction. All that I am, all that I have, is now focused on the selection of the next Maker. This is the story of that search - God help it to succeed. Author Bio: D. Andrew Kopas and his wife Barbara, after a long sojourn in the Pinelands of New Jersey, now own property in the mountains of Northwestern Montana where they hope to spend the rest of their earthly lives. A trained physicist and statistician, his previous publications in scientific and technical journals dealt with the subjects of multivariate modeling and statistical scoring algorithms. This novel is based on his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, his love of the genre of science fiction, and his concern for the environment after seeing the destruction wrought upon it by man in the jungles of Burma.
