About the author:
Mars Q, also known as Yellow Jesus and the Fortune Cookie Monster, is a bored, underappreciated, and underemployed high school supply teacher. He's overeducated, undersexed, surly, idealistic, and probably a little too suicidal. But all Asian people are a little suicidal; we just don't value a life without purpose as much as others I suppose. Mars is desperately seeking a reason to stay on this planet. He doesn't believe in God but doesn't really care if you do so long as you don't try to make him care. He's after the truth and justice no matter the shape, color, or form. Ideally, he'd like to get paid for his talents and services, just enough to put a roof over his head and food in his belly.

Sons of Monkeys

A New Study of the Human Animal by a down on his luck Chinaman with a Zoology Degree

Authored by Mars Q
Cover design or artwork by Dang Thai
Edited by Peter Watts
Edition: 1

Sons of Monkeys explores the controversial paradigm of multiple human species interacting in the past, present, and future. For the first time, it gives human history a working ecological model to explain the existence of such phenomena as war, genocide, and chronic poverty. This is NOT a revisit of "Multiregional Hypothesis" or anything polygenic from a "racist" past. This is a brand new synthesis that treats humans, all humans, including Jesus, like any other animal on the planet through a "pluralistic" evolutionary framework, which means reconciling the effects of entropy on culture and genetics under a biological whole. In some ways, this is a modern update on Charles Darwin's "Descent of Man" and Desmond Morris' "The Naked Ape." In another sense, however, this is Biology's swan song before it fades even further from public consciousness, one last final "whole organism" treatment of the animal we care most about: ourselves.
