Sudbury's Dale McKinnon, part-time engineer, part-time writer and former Laurentian University professor, explores the nature of time, existence and humanity's place in the universe through the eyes of Dr. Rico Sanchez, a thoughtful theologian, in his new novel “Rare Endeavors.”

The book is available trough Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Y3VVGDC/ref=cm_sw_su_dp.

Set in the year 2094, “Rare Endeavors” imagines a peaceful Earth, a unified utopia kept safe under the watchful eye of supreme leader, Chief Chin.

In reality, deep-space exploration efforts are not going well, and neither is the whole “peace” and “social justice” thing promised by the Unification at the end of Third World War.

Meanwhile, Jose Lopez leads a group of freedom fighters (or terrorists, depending on which side you're on), the MED, or Movement for Equal Distribution, in a shadow-war against Chief Chin.

Rare Endeavors” might be McKinnon's first creative piece, but it is not his first published book.

In 1984, he published “Airflow Measurements made with Sulphur Hexaflouride.” Since then, he's published more then 30 educational guides and pieces of technical writing, related to his engineering profession.

Separate from “Rare Endeavors,” he plans to pursue further creative writing with his “Civilization Trilogy,” which is scheduled to launch in the winter with the first book in the series, “Culturally Different.”

While McKinnon did not give out any specific details, he hinted that he used his experiences living in Thailand for the novels, and that they take place mostly in the Asian country.

Rare Endeavors” and the “Civilization Trilogy” are published through Broken Publications of Washington State.
