Are you concerned about the destruction of the planet and our survival? Are you a fan of Social Science Fiction? Do you believe that there are forces at work, more powerful than ourselves, that don't have your best interests at heart? Oh, yeah... And do you like animals?
If so, read on.
"Endangered Species" is satirical, action-adventure, social sci-fi series from the SEAM Writers Room, led by Vaulte Kamish. We are offering you - yes, you - a FREE COPY of this controversial new work in the hope that you will enjoy it so much that you spread the word to other enlightened individuals like yourself.
Warning: For Mature Readers Only!!
This book contains extreme satire, caustic social commentary, gratuitous violence, and scenes of a graphic nature - in addition to British spelling - which have been known to cause cognitive dissonance in less intelligent readers. Symptoms include: "thinking", "learning", and other latent self-reflexive behaviours that could lead to further contemplation.
If you think you are at risk, then please take the following test:
1) "Tropic Thunder", "Thank You For Smoking", and "Dr Strangelove" are tragic and unamusing.
2) Bankers deserved the bail-out for bonuses; they work longer hours and do God's work.
2) Stephen Colbert is America's "Great White Hope".
3) "The Daily Show" is for morons; Fox News is for The Chosen.
If you agreed to any of the above statements, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
It will MESS WITH YOUR MIND!!
This book is for enlightened readers only. Apologies to the rest of you, but we must take precautions against idiots unwittingly stumbling upon this book and suffering extreme psychological trauma from the shocking and deeply disturbing material found within and then posting negative reviews on Amazon, because they missed their mommies.
Now, that's out of the way...
Book 1, "Diary of an Eco-Warrior", follows the adventures of intrepid but unfortunate, animal-tracker, Chuck Collins, as he travels the globe to save endangered animals from extinction. Problem is - Collins is a disaster magnet. Animals hate him. And they can't wait to tear him apart.
Dogged by the epic failure of his safari-cum-amusement park, Animal Land, he desperately needs to resurrect his career before self-loathing consumes him. His producer puts him on the trail of vicious creatures in peril - hoping that something catastrophic will happen on camera and boost ratings.
Reality exceeds expectations, however, when the hapless crew are caught in a cross-fire on their first expedition. Heavily armed poachers appear to be kidnapping exotic and dangerous animals for sport.
"My name is Chuck Collins and I'm on a mission from Gaia."
Inspired by a higher calling, Collins leads his crew on a fast-paced adventure to scupper the poacher's plans, but ends up uncovering a larger conspiracy to save the planet by nefarious means.[box style="info"]There are 2 ways to get the full eBook: NetGalley (Free), Amazon (Paid).

"Crass, perverse, and absolutely one of the most hilarious, engaging reads I've come across. Kamish has a natural knack for pacing and characterization, and his writing is both articulate and relentlessly snarky."
"Are you missing Terry Pratchett since his unfortunate health challenges have slowed the wonderful stream of Discworld Novels? Well you might enjoy Endangered Species by Vaulte Kamish with a similar mixture of off-beat humor, unreality, and topical satire."
"I really enjoyed this book. It makes a point about both endangered animals and the 99% in an engaging and humorous story. I look forward to book 2 of the series."
"Vaulte Kamish creates this new world order where we are looking at our future in slow motion. Where money controls the world and more importantly the underworld controls our lives without us really knowing it."
"The title put it up higher on my 'must read' list, the writing kept me engaged! I found it humorous, seat gripping, entertaining, and it makes you think, all rolled into one! I really like how it brought up environmental issues from a totally different angle than most people see them. Definitely recommend to anyone!"
"The insight into current day social, political, and economic, realities that are brought out through clever prose and black humour is so utterly believable (even when the unbelievable is described) because of its relevance to modern society. This could only have been written by an educated, thoughtful, cosmopolitan writer who understands and challenges the underlying causes and forces that drive the world today."
We are currently in the sixth major "mass extinction" event in Earth's history, precipitated by our own behaviour, and time is running out. In addition to mass extinction, the story examines the highly secretive food industry and its ecologically disastrous, industrial farming practices. Will mankind go extinct before it's too late?
Our story is full of action and adventure, framed by Satire. Less "An Inconvenient Truth" and more "Indiana Jones meets Tropic Thunder".
This series introduces critical environmental and social issues in a highly entertaining way. By engaging the public in topical debate through entertainment, we hope to make learning (and saving the planet) both exciting and fun - rather than overtly "educational". We hope to inspire dialogue amongst people not normally engaged in this subject matter. Ignore it at your peril!
