Writer Profile: Jack Eason

Born in the English county of Suffolk in 1948, from the age of ten, Jack spent most of his life in New Zealand until 2000 when he returned to his birthplace.

After military service in the 1960's, he traveled the world, visiting many places, speaking with many peoples over the years. Now he is content to write and travel via the Internet.

He lives in semi-retirement surrounded by  his favorite books, ranging from historical fact to science fiction. His literary icons are J.R.R Tolkien, George Orwell, Arthur C Clarke and John Wyndham.

"Onet's Tale" is his first foray into the world of Heroic Science Fiction and publishing.

We met Jack fortuitously via Facebook, and learned of his love of science fiction and his efforts in trying to publish his work. With a little bit of dialogue and some reading, it was clear to us that he had something worthwhile to offer to the reading public (and so did Paul Goat Allen - spec-fic reviewer for Barnes and Noble). Since publishing his first novel, Onet's Tale, Jack has worked very hard to promote it, and also has been a staunch supporter of IFWG Publishing. 

This is the cover of Jack's first book, published this year by IFWG Publishing. And here is the blurb:

Onet's Tale is a classic tale of good versus evil, but it is interspersed with unexpected and challenging twists. It is an epic science fiction, spanning eons. It is mythic in scope and theme.

Onet is an ancient being whose sole purpose is to trap and remove the evil he awaits. He is the story teller.

Onet’s tale takes us across the cosmos as our heroes, transformed into magnificent berserker warriors, are caught up in an ancient intergalactic power struggle between the Alliance of Planets, led by a consortium of Human and Nephile nations, and their arch enemy, the Drana Empire, who use Onet's own kind - the Khaz - to carry out their spying, and expedite their evil intent across countless worlds.

Just when Onet finally believes he has captured his evil foe, the story changes yet again for the worse...
