Mario Stinger is a Canadian author, whose career was in industrial counter-espionage. He has been gravitating around the United Nations for many years and currently lives abroad where he is granted diplomatic immunity. This has given him a unique perspective which has helped him ground his novels in reality, despite the book’s science fiction genre.

His inspiration for Destined for Oblivion: As Nature Intended came from his past experiences in his careers in security and in industrial counter-espionage as well as from his travels and interactions with different cultures around the world as a diplomat under the auspices of the United Nations. Being an avid reader and fan of various science fiction genres, he specifically named Star Trek and Star Gate as very influential with regard to the nature of the technology and equipment that can be found in the facility. He based the story’s plot on a curiosity that he came upon when he was reading about climate change, the continuing population growth, and the wanton exploitation of finite natural resources that he has witnessed in his journeys.

Mario is the founder of the Immortality Project Organization, an NGO dedicated to raise money and financing projects aimed at reversing aging and achieving human immortality.  He is also a long-time member of Alcor Life Extension Foundation.
