Clash Point

Clash PointAnd once again I have another new novel available as an e-book on The title of this one is Clash Point. What’s it about? It tells the story of first contact between humans and a sentient race on a distant planet. The inhabitants belong to a society that is stagnant and uninterested in anything new; all the questions that need to be asked have been–and the answers have been given. When one of the inhabitants is accidentally rescued from being ritually sacrificed, the scientific crew of the survey ship are confronted with whether to send her back to be sacrificed, or not. Conflict arises among the scientists as to whether their interference will be destructive to this primitive society. So: are all cultures equally good and valid? Or are some bad and deserving of being changed or destroyed? Is it always a bad thing for the more backward society when it comes in contact with a more advanced civilization? Will it just be Cortes conquering the New World all over again?
