I’m curious about RS Perry books, their order, the characters, the author—–
Curious about RS Perry and what happened – a sequel to a trilogy? Were the first three books mischaracterized as a trilogy? – The O Trilogy. Trilogies have a final conclusion, don’t they? That’s the end. A done deal. Finito. I’m curious about RS Perry- his intentions. The next book – Ecuador – while sounding nothing like the first three, all starting with an “O,” it continues with many of the characters found in the first three books. Of course, new characters are both “born” and “perish” along the way. As we become friends with them and as the series characters become vivid in our minds, it is sad when they are no longer with us. After seeing a fragile “glass apple” hanging delicately from a tree, a young boy is told by Heather that images will always remain in his mind. This is true in real life; our friends and family remain in our thoughts, and we see images of them, and remember them, even when we are apart or they are no longer part of this world. Some of the reality of RS Perry’s books is how the characters mature, learn to understand themselves and others, fall in love, survive and sadly, on occasion, die.

An Unforgettable Cast of Characters – “and unexpected events which sometimes leave you gasping. Some of the action is violent and cruel, especially when carried out nonchalantly by the sociopath Najma. But the unusual thing for a book in this genre is that you really care what happens to the characters. Jim and Heather, Brush and Glenda, Nusmen, Glenda and all the other characters are not stereotypes but people you feel you could meet and get to know. Even the evil Najma is complex and interesting. There are times when you feel as though you are in the room with them, observing and listening like a gecko on a wall. Read the book –Over The Line -or the excerpt to get the reference! If you like mysteries or adventures or crime or action or romance filled with characters that become your friends, begin by reading the first in the first in the series, the unforgettable Off The Edge.”
Who is the Author –RS Perry has always had many interests. One college advisor accused him of having a lack of focus. With that in mind, he decided focusing on multiple topics was a good idea, not what the advisor had in mind and he pursued a self designed undergraduate degree that encompassed three departments; Astronomy, Earth sciences, and Molecular Biology, which before the genetic revolution was known as Microbiology and Virology. The combination with Oceanography and Space Engineering are mixed in, with his three undergraduate “focuses” have become known as Astrobiology. He later received a PhD from the University of Washington in Earth Sciences along with a NASA certification in Astrobiology. Curious to understand the world combined with his love of nature, he has explored many of the the Earth’s wild places. He has been privileged by being invited by friends to take part in diving to the depths of the Pacific Ocean in the deep submersible Alvin, sailing across the Atlantic in a small sailboat (at 52 feet not the tiniest sailboat), climbing mountains in Washington State, the Himalayas and the Andes, visiting deserts in the Mexico, the US, the Sahara, and the driest the Atacama, Chile along with some of the wettest, the Amazon, Borneo and South East Asia. He learned to fly to be able to get over the Cascade Mountains from his ranch to Seattle. He started Off The Edge while hiking in the Pasayten Wilderness along the Canadian Border.
Later in life, he continued to pursue science but became equally interested in education. While at Imperial College London, where he remains, he founded an education charity – the Space Science Engineering Foundation.
Dr Perry has always loved books, art, and movies. He loves to tell fact based stories. Besides many science articles, he writes scripts and is a member of the WGA – the Writers Guild of America West.
