The novel WORMWOOD, by John I Coby, is a narrative of the times before, during and after a catastrophic, extinction-level event (ELE) caused by the impact of a rogue comet with Earth. It tells tales of Earthlings and Aliens negotiating through a Biblical event, through a mass extinction. The only kind of future that can be predicted by anyone is one with mathematical certainty - for example, the orbit of a comet. A gargantuan comet hurtles through interstellar space on its elliptical trajectory towards an extinction-level impact with Earth. The Aliens have known about it for over 6000 years. Adam is unknowingly chosen, by the Aliens, for relocation as part of a grand plan to save the Earth's species from certain extinction. WORMWOOD is a re-edited compilation of 2023, 2023.2 and 2123.
