Earth basked in the glow of a new interstellar age, saved from enslavement to the insectoid biofabs by the dramatic arrival of the Kronarin fleet. Laden with honors and riches, John Harrison, hero of the Biofab War, can finally live the good life—or can he?
Unknown to the Alliance, renegade biofabs escaped to an alternate universe where under their brilliant Tactics Master they're breeding back to strength, readying a counter-strike against the people of both universes.
Catapulted into a twisted image of his world, Harrison must find the biofabs’ nest and take it out before a new generation hatches. But it won’t be easy—the biofabs have found deadly allies. And in this version of Earth, Harrison’s a rebel on the run from World War Two's victors--the German-American allies. (First published by Tor Books, 1986. 56,000 words.)

A graduate of Boston University, Berry has a master's in information systems and was a systems analyst and data architect for the Navy Department and Harvard University.
