Potential Market for the Taylor Thomas Trilogy

The Taylor Thomas Trilogy is right in step with today's young adult fiction. Similar to Nancy Farmer's The House of the Scorpion, and Feed by M. T. Anderson, The Taylor Thomas Trilogy deals with important issues such as the nature of consciousness, what it means to be human, the use of technology, and our relationship with the environment. It is also similar to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy and godless by Peter Hautman, in that it questions deeply held beliefs in the monotheistic religions.

In adult literature we are seeing an increasing number of titles featuring the dangerous side effects and scenarios of runaway nanotechnology: Greg Bear's Blood Music, and Michael Crichton's Prey are two current titles. And Mindscan by Robert J. Sawyer deals with a brain uploading procedure similar to the one that Taylor Thomas, the female protagonist in the trilogy, is expected to endure. As Sawyer writes, "Consciousness is back, baby!"

The Taylor Thomas Trilogy is different from all of these, however, in that it also involves lost worlds and races, time travel, paranormal experiences, and alternative history, while also taking a lighthearted look at New Age mysticism, religion, and ancient civilizations. The Taylor Thomas Trilogy has the potential to attract readers of fabulist and historical fiction, as well as those dedicated to science fiction and adventure fantasy.
