Stan Morris was born in Linwood, California, in 1951. Joseph Stalin was dictator of the Soviet Union at the time. Stan was educated in California, attended college in New Mexico where he met the girl of his dreams, married her, and is now living on a farm on the island of Maui. How good is that?
They have two grown sons (both gainfully employed, thank goodness.) Stan has five LCD tvs in his man-cave and loves to watch sports, listen to old rock and roll, garden, read, and write. He and his wife travel at times, and he loves Lisbon, Portugal.
The energy-based aliens believe in a system of trial by battle. They seek to push Shane and his friends into the arena with the ones who killed their parents. The results will determine if humans deserve to live, or if they should be made extinct as well. It's up to Shane to keep his friends—and an army of kids who look up to him—alive. They'll be fighting not just for their own lives, but for the fate of the entire human race. Can the enemy of Shane's enemy be his friend, or is this just another species determined to exploit and destroy them?
