Published by Ross Gaehring - Optimus 4
Thanks to my Lord, for giving me the inspiration
to write Optimus 4, and to my beautiful wife Susan and children
Ashley, Anthony, Ryan and Byran for their loving support,
without which this novel could not have been completed.
In a real dark night of the soul it is always three o'clock
in the morning, day after day.
--- F. Scott Fitzgerald
Let's pray that the human race never escapes Earth to spread
its iniquity elsewhere.
--- C.S. Lewis
