The Prometheus Saga

A Science Fiction Anthology
A collection of stories by

What if human beings weren't on top? How would we feel if some advanced alien species knew of our existence, and had us under their microscope? Enter Prometheus: a humanoid crafted from our sampled DNA with greater abilities and an artificial intelligence. Prometheus's mission is to report on the development of intelligent life on Earth. It is not a job he chose; rather, it is his sole reason for being. He must go among us, watch us, learn from us, and be one of us without exposing his secret. Through the ages, Prometheus's artificial eyes see humanity at its best and its worst: as we rise to our challenges and fall to our hubris, sacrificing all for the sake of others and committing unspeakable atrocities. The human condition has been thrust upon him without his consent and through no fault of his own, begging the question: how human can a manufactured, immortal life-form designed by aliens from beyond our solar system truly be? The Prometheus Saga is the premier project of the Alvarium Experiment, a consortium of accomplished and award-winning authors. The thirteen short stories in the saga span the range of the existence of Homo sapiens.


Q - What is The Prometheus Saga? A - In The Prometheus Saga, twelve authors unite to interpret how an alien presence would interact with the human condition over a time period that spans from the dawn of man to the present. The stories cross genres and genders, allowing for entirely different narratives and insights on historical events and the human experience. Q - Where should a reader start when selecting a short story to read in The Prometheus Saga? A - Each story is self-contained and can be read in any order. The reader is free to select any of the stories at random to begin their experience. Each short story has a different setting in history. The book description will explain the time period setting for each particular story. Q - What is this alien probe? A - An alien civilization landed a probe on Earth at the dawn of mankind. This probe, a form of artificial intelligence, can morph into any human form, take on any human identity, either male or female. Its life spans hundreds of thousands of years. Its mission is to report everything it can about us to its home planet. What this humanoid observes and learns over centuries of human existence will be interpreted through each short story in the saga. The alien probe is as mythic as Prometheus, the Greek Titan who was said to have brought fire to mankind.
