About the Author
C.C. Lum is perhaps best known through his numerous alter egos, many of whom make their appearances at all levels in his fiction. Early on he was an ambitious little pig, like Gaston, with aspirations for various forms of knighthood, and, as well, he has been young David of Conch Cay, dedicated restorer of historical truths. In time C.C. Lum took on certain aspects of Garret Jannings, the reluctantly moralistic scribe with a long career of observing the venality that blooms more than just seasonally in all political systems. Occasionally he has been Alan Burrows, seeking and wielding power in vain to achieve justice within those venues of public trust. As with his heroes, Akira Mori and Gorby, C.C. Lum has long been the faithful humanist, trusting progress to the will of the people. Though, truth be told, he has latterly become Fyodor, the troubled seer into the soul of mankind. Still, for sanity's sake, when ever possible C.C. Lum resides in the comfort zone of his namesake character, Lum Bulkeley, ever-seeking to be amused by the frailty of the human character and trying not to overlook the flaws in his own.
