PROGENETER I Immortality: the Quest

Published by Stephen Bareham

Year 1540: The Mavas u Ch’an are an anthropological anomaly, a mysterious, reclusive tribe of Mayans dating back five centuries to Indian bearers forced into slavery by Spanish conquistador Francisco de Coronado as he searched for the Seven Cities of Cibola in the southern U.S. After a daring escape, the Mayans lived in isolation deep within the Grand Canyon.

And they protected an incredible secret—a potion that triples life spans. Year 2013: A disaffected tribe member lets the formula fall into the hands of a multi-national drug company. Fearing global catastrophe if the longevity drug reaches market, the Mavas u Ch’an dispatch warrior monks—the Bacob—to retrieve the formula and erase all traces of its existence. But a wonder drug like PROGENETER is worth killing for.

Dramatic events are set in motion as powerful forces collide. This saga spans centuries, from Spanish conquests, to wagon train attacks, to modern day—a unique meshing of action twists, intriguing scientific research, romance, Mayan mysticism, and a compelling philosophy about life and living.

PROGENETER explores how human life evolved and probes the opportunities and the terrible consequences of extending life on a planet already stressed by over population and impending environmental catastrophe. While the story line of PROGENETER is fictional, the issue of longevity extension is real and will need to be addressed very soon. Will ultra-long life be a blessing or a curse? The answers may surprise you.
