Julian Clifford Holmes was born November 20, 1930 in Portland, Maine. After attending Brunswick High School, Holmes went to Bowdoin College and was graduated cum laude in 1952. He later worked as a scientist for the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. Holmes was also an activist for many causes such as peace, justice, healthcare, and the environment. In 1970, he was awarded the Washington Evening Star Trophy for Outstanding Civic Achievement by the Prince Georges Civic Federation. Holmes died December 16, 2012 in Lewiston, Maine.

This collection is split into two series: Sears Island and MTBE (Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether).
