“Toxic Planet” by William Miles Combs was inspired by his time in the U.S. Air Force when he witnessed extreme poverty and environmental damage all over the world
As a member of the U.S. Air Force, William Miles Combs traveled to many places all over the world and witnessed many things that many of us can only ever imagine. In “Toxic Planet” (ISBN 1477480730), Combs uses what he saw to show readers the troubled path the world is heading down.
Jacs Collins is unlike his friends and anyone else on Earth. He is genetically better off than most of mankind, and unfortunately, the government knows this. And Jacs is no stranger to the twisted world government and its corporate partner who took his parents’ lives.
Using his genetic power, Jacs tries to help the world around him in any way he can. He continually tries to improve their quality of living, which the world government can only view as a threat. Readers follow Jacs as he tries to eliminate pollution and poverty, despite the threats of the powerful and evil world government.
“I wanted to use Jacs as a symbol of how mankind’s ability to survive in our deteriorating environment requires extensive measures,” says Combs.
A science fiction novel for all ages, “Toxic Planet” is a suspense-filled commentary on the condition of the environment and the path mankind is currently heading down. Combs hopes that his novel entertains and educates readers to make decisions that better the community and not just themselves.
“Toxic Planet” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
