Paul, a closeted
gay male with a history of religious abuse from a fundamentalist church is
plagued with recurring nightmares. They are distortions of old 1950’s science fiction films and he feels he is going insane. But it
turns out that his dreams are prophetic, an echo of things to come -- as
he discovers when he finds himself inexplicably on board an alien UFO, a
living spaceship called a “Star Hopper”.
He meets the
intensely curious, highly intelligent, insectoid space aliens, called “Wroussara” (pronounced
Roo-Sah-Raw) and learns to communicate with them. They have a precious gift
- a biotechnology that can eliminate all human disease and suffering. They
are utterly fascinated by the life forms they scan on Earth and wish to interact
with them and humanity. They are puzzled that no one on Earth but Paul responds
to their psychic calls. Of all mankind, he is unique in his ability to communicate
with these amazing insectoid aliens.
are of a bizarre alien appearance, the Wroussara are gentle and kindly, and
Paul finds himself strangely attracted to them, much as one might be attracted
to a kitten or puppy. Even though they have no concept of being gay, the
Wroussara have similar feelings, even affection, for Paul. This is entirely
new to them, and they invite Paul to visit their home world called: “Wherren” to
learn of their life and possibly come up with a way they can meet humanity
and experience the wonders of life on Earth.
not go as planned, and the Wroussara are intercepted on their journey by
a competing species called the "Scaradin" (pronounced Ska-Rah-Din), who capture
and take them prisoner on board their gigantic colonizing space ship.
These space aliens are very different from the kindly Wroussara. They
are physically beautiful, yet equally alien in appearance, and communicate
through beautiful musical tones. They have a graceful and elegant technology
and high sense of art reflected in all their designs and environment.
But these creatures are psychologically odious, being deceptive, manipulative,
uncompassionate, cruel, and arrogant. Their predatory society is fixed on
conquest - a philosophy fueled by their rigid, dogmatic religious morality
- something oddly similar to what Paul had known in his cruel, fundamentalist
church. Of greater and more immediate concern for Paul is the fact that the
Scaradin have an intense hatred of the peaceful Wroussara and are determined
to eradicate them from existence.
Paul must find a way to help the Wroussara, using all his wits to escape
with them from the Scaradin and travel on to the gentle haven of Wherren.
of the escape, and an attack by the wicked Scaradin High Priest named “Bosh-Tu”,
bring about a change in the nature of the Wroussara forever. Yet, in spite
of this, Paul and the Wroussara discover that love and romance is possible
among the stars, even with another species, but in a way that is totally

things seem to be going well, and Tom is healthy and happy, they
discover a problem. His biocellular clock, which was accelerated
for the transition from his Wroussaran to his human form, is stuck
in the fast mode. He is aging at such an accelerated rate that he
will die in a few years of old age. Unless his bioclocks are re-calibrated
to ‘human normal’ speed
in time, Tom will be stuck in the metabolic accelerated mode.
The Wroussara, in spite of their biotechnical expertise have no cure
