Neanderthal Hunter Spearing Game
 

            Suppose scientists could bring back Neanderthals with some help from cloning and then they could grow up in modern society?  How would they be treated and become part of the community.  A new and TV series The Neanderthals Are Back raises these questions in a series of dramatic stories. It has already gotten four five-star reviews on Amazon and there is TV interest in the series..

             In the first book The Beginning, the first six Neanderthal children grow up as babies in a lab where they are taught by a nursery school teacher and after that they experience life in a group home, become foster kids, and experience elementary school and life as teenagers and young adults.  Along the way, they are soon encounter difficulties, including being bullied and mocked because they are different, and they face discrimination, prejudice, and intolerance as they seek to make friends and gain acceptance.  They also experience exploitation when they start working.  Meanwhile, the media features occasional stories on them, and some even get a genius pills from scientists, turning them into nerds for a while.

            It is an especially timely series because it places the stories of this first generation of modern Neanderthals in a modern world going through all kinds of turmoil, especially centered around illegal immigration, income inequality, mass shootings, increased crime, sex trafficking, drug smuggling, and more.  The Neanderthals are often picked upon as victims of exploitation and are often wrongly accused of crimes as easy targets.  Thus, the series highlights many issues that might occur should the Neanderthals return, such as questions about inequality, prejudice, and discrimination. 

            This first book The Neanderthals Are Back: The Beginning is available on Amazon in a paperback, Kindle, hardback, and in other digital formats through Draft2Digital, and will soon be an audiobook.  The Kindle edition is at a super low introductory price of only .99c at https://www.amazon.com/Neanderthals-Are-Back-Beginning-Scientists-ebook/dp/B07V2VPPJT.  The paperback is at https://www.amazon.com/Neanderthals-Are-Back-Beginning-Scientists/dp/1080433473.  And anyone who reviews the book is entered into a drawing for prizes.

            There is even a Facebook page for the group: @neanderthalsareback.  So get your copy and join the fun. 

             If you want to learn more about Neanderthals, what they look like, and how they are viewed by artists and cartoonists, a follow-up book is Who Are the Neanderthals, Really?  This new book features images of Neanderthals, including scientific discoveries, reconstructions of what Neanderthals looked, recreations of how they lived, and cartoons of Neanderthals in various activities -- even coping with modern technology.  The Kindle edition, priced at the lowest introductory price available at $1.99 is at. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VWFSR2X.  The paperback link for the version with full color images is at https://www.amazon.com/dp/1086456408.  The paperback with black and white images is at https://www.amazon.com/dp/1086462033.  An audiobook for this is coming in about two weeks.

            More Neanderthal stories will be out soon, and a line of Neanderthal dolls, games, greeting cards, and posters will be out soon.  These projects are being coordinated by Jones & O'Malley, based in the Los Angeles area.
