About William Hayashi
Hayashi's diverse life experiences have come together to produce an extraordinary trilogy combining traits from the speculative fiction of Michael Crichton to the surprising plot twists of Robert Ludlum in the style right out of the Golden Age of Science Fiction.
William Hayashi is a life-long member of the Information Technologies industry. Beginning as a programmer in the early 1970s, he currently owns his own business consulting firm and donates much of his time to the creation and maintenance of computer labs for schools, after school study centers and adult education programs.
Hayashi's first ever movie script was the winner in the 2009 Chicago arm of the International 48 Hour Film Project competition. His script for the film short, Fallout, won against 41 other scripts filmed for 2009's entries in the international competition and is available on YouTube. His short story, Your Two O'Clock Is Here, was also filmed in the same month and submitted to several film festivals around the world.
The Darkside Trilogy tells the story of a community of African Americans who beat Neil Armstrong to the moon and reside there for four decades before being discovered by those living on earth.
Discovery, volume one of the trilogy, tells of how the United States of America makes this historic discovery and what happens in this country as a result.
Conception, the second installment of the Darkside Trilogy, tells the story of the remarkable people found living in secret on the backside of the moon in Discovery.
Confrontation describes the inevitable face off between those living on Earth, who covet the technological riches of those in space, and the people who refuse to share them with their Earth-born cousins.
The Darkside Universe is a wide-ranging epic that spans seven novels: two trilogies, and a seventh volume which winds up the epic tale. Hayashi has scheduled new installments to arrive every year.
Currently, Hayashi can be found hosting The Genesis Science Fiction Radio Series, a weekly online show for the blacksciencefictionsociety.com Web site interviewing Black artists and content creators in the science fiction, horror and fantasy genres. Guests include comic book, short story, novel, spoken word, TV show and movie and other medium creatives.

Titles By William Hayashi
Ten years following the events of Confrontation...After denying the people of Earth access to space until they’ve completely divested themselves of all the world’s nuclear weapons, an undeclared state of war still exists between the all-Black space colony and the people of their beautiful, blue home-world.And despite their best efforts, the former space-capable nations of Earth have been denied any manned or unmanned access off-planet. For Astrophysicist Christopher Wright, the journey he began many years ago had all but seemed to grind to a halt, until a revolution of the mind sparked an interest in faster than light travel. Now, he and his extended family have turned their attention to exploring other planets and moons outside the solar system, and in turn, advanced their research into this specialized form of travel. The dream: to locate and trade with far more advanced, alien civilizations beyond the reaches of man.Joining Christopher on his crusade, are his lifelong companions, Chuck and Peanut, whose endless bond fortifies the hope of better things to come. But they know all too well that with the birth of the concept of venturing into space, everything is a gamble, and as the people of Earth press forward with their intentions of upending the all-Black space colony’s agenda, soon everyone will have to decide if it’s worth the risk.
A de facto state of war persists between the United States of America and man’s only space-based civilization: a community of African Americans inhabiting their own space station. Christopher Wright leads the separatists of the Black Space Colony in its endeavor to perfect sub-light travel through the mastery of technology while navigating the sociological challenges of becoming completely independent from Earth. With the arrival of new recruits from Earth comes the challenge of integration while charting their path, concentrating on self-determination, and eliminating the influence of white America. Driven by lust to attain the advanced technology of the Colony, the action revs up as the team of space colonists investigate secrets buried under hundreds of miles of the frozen exterior of ice-covered moons. As Christopher rallies his team to press forward against all odds, they take a deep dive into further developing an innovative, isolated, off-Earth community, tackling the rising growing pains amongst the second generation of colonists concerning their current existence and plans for the future. Up against this unique backdrop, the U.S. Government continues its marred efforts to subdue the Colony and attain its exceptional technology.
Any hope of peace between the two is all but decimated when hostilities between Earth and the Colony escalated with the killing of two female colonial pilots as the U.S. military fired upon their spacecraft with rail gun technology. In response, the Colony destroyed every factory and support facility as an unspoken warning to discontinue the construction and distribution of that class of weapon. This sparks a confrontation between the C.I.A. and the Colony, as Christopher considers his next move to demonstrate the Colony’s process against the President of the United States herself.
In the middle 1960s a Black astrophysics student discovers how to control gravity but tells no one. Instead, he gathers a small group of his friends together in secret, they build a space craft, travel to the back side of the moon, the side that never shows toward earth, and build an underground colony well before Neil Armstrong shows up.
Over the next forty years they secretly bring 2000 additional African Americans to the moon and develop a Utopian society with advanced science and medicine; they are healthier and live longer than their cousins on earth.
Discoverys story begins in 2001, and tells of the circumstances that lead the United States of America to discover that these African Americans have been living on the moon for nearly half a century, and what happens in this country as a result.

The Darkside Trilogy is born of the headlines of a generation and a tale nearly half a millennium in the making, with Confrontation bringing the story to its inevitable climax.
Confrontation concludes a story that began with a series of mysteries around the globe and ends with the entire planet forced to confront its obsession with killing and the consequences of refusing to change a global culture steeped in self-destruction.
When the needs and wants of politics and corporate greed intersect, compromise and criminality often follow. In most cases, there is little consequence for such crimes committed against the people. But what would happen when the people can not only fight back, but actually win?
Discovery, Volume One of the Darkside Trilogy tells the story of what happens in the United States of America when a community of African Americans are found to have been secretly living on the backside of the moon since before Neil Armstrong arrived.
Conception, Volume Two of the Darkside Trilogy tells the story of the extraordinary people who built their lunar habitat and how they came together. These people, exclusively Black, conceive of, design and construct technological marvels that the collective scientific minds of the entire world cannot duplicate. And how, one might ask, did they manage to do what no one had ever done before, over and over and over again in so many disciplines, and in so many ways?
Those are the questions readers of Discovery have asked since it was published. Conception answers these questions and, hopefully, spawns an entirely new set.
There is a broad arc to the Darkside Trilogy. The entire Darkside Universe spans seven volumes, with Conception introducing the prime builders and movers of the Darkside landscape.
The ride is spectacular.
