Testa, Dom

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) US broadcaster and author, active for about forty years in the former capacity; his Young Adult Galahad sequence beginning with Galahad 1: The Comet's Curse (2004) is set after all human adults have died in a plague imported by virus from off-planet, focusing on the adventures of a group of 251 children on a Spaceship en route to possible salvation for Homo sapiens. The success of their voyage is increasingly threatened by an overcontrolling AI, and challenged by Extraterrestrial species encountered on their way. Ultimately, the surviving children – now relatively grown – must choose between living in a kind of Zoo, or facing pioneer hardships on a rough planet. [JC]
