This science fiction author manages to write one of the most memorable science fiction book series of his time, written between the years of 1977 and 1983. The novels inside talk about a story that is a bit different than what you might have seen in science fiction genres as George takes another approach at the protagonists and antagonists of the novels. You will see exactly what we mean as you read this book review of The Omega Point Trilogy series by George Zebrowski. You can also take a look at our review of Stranger Suns book, which was also written by Zebrowski!
The books are science fiction and they do involve the human race in their plot, but what is different here is the fact that unlike many other science fiction novels, the humans are not the victims here of alien and galactic war, they are actually the villains, evil beings who manage to almost destroy a whole race of aliens. That definitely sounds super exciting as it is a very new and unique way to look at the human race in science fiction stories for a change.

This war lasted for a thousand years and although the Herculean Empire had superior technology than Earth, more advanced knowledge and so on.
Earth actually had colonized a larger portion of the stars than the Herculeans and actually managed to defeat them after the long battle. Those times were terrible ones for the Herculeans as they were placed into vaporizer chambers to be killed and a few survivors were left so that they could be hunted for sport.
