Has a new branch been added to the Homo sapiens family tree?
Six-month old Gregory Shenko defies traditional scientific thinking when an electroencephalogram (EEG) reveals extremely high voltages coming from an oversized lesion in his brain. When the university doctors caring for Gregory experience violent episodic headaches and claim the episodes somehow stem from Gregory's brain "anomaly," the academic and public controversies explode and speculation runs rampant. Could another line of hominid have survived the evolutionary process or are the reports merely a hoax?
Public reaction drives Gregory, his mother, and his pediatrician into hiding. Years later, an adolescent misadventure brings the Neanderthal-appearing Gregory back into the public's attention and the world must decide: What makes a human "human"?
"A gripping and tightly crafted piece of fiction using a
decidedly ingenious twist on recent scientific findings."
