Description:

Paperback. 673 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.7in.Consciousness returned and with it came the realization that he was anywhere but home. Racing with all manner of dark images, Jared Chandlers mind reeled from the stark reality he found himself in. Sealed within a transparent case with a gap in his short-term memory aroused a deep fear he had never before felt in the mundane life he had led. Closing his eyes and forcing himself to keep calm, Jared finally felt recollection return. He had been on his way home from his parents after Thanksgiving dinner. With his car in the shop he had unwisely accepted a ride home from his sister, Sandra. They had argued, not surprising considering her political and philosophical views, so Jared simply got out to walk the rest of the way. Nothing weird about that. No. It was minutes later as he exited the C-Store that the little red sports car slid by him out-of-control, the driver glancing out with a look of horror on his face. An instant later Jared turned to see what might have been the cause and found himself confronted by a swirling mass of dark translucent colors that seemed to distort everything around it. He had no place to run and no time. It was then that blackness overcame him. With a little patience Jared managed to open his small prison. After some tense searching he stood staring out a large window at an uninterrupted black tapestry filled by more tiny points of light than he could have ever imagined. There had to be answers, but those would have to wait until he survived the Trials of the Elected. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About the Author: In the milkyway galaxy, on a small blue planet, hides the mind of a pathological interplanetary dreamer, writer, modeler and storyteller. James Catlin enjoys writing science fiction and being an RPG master; designing new worlds from a vast empty place called his mind. From a master model maker and imagineer extraordinaire come the lives of millions not yet born. Or does he have a psychic connection to an untold sphere of universes that have come and gone, or are yet to come? Born one thousand, nine hundred and sixty years after the separation of time on this small blue planet, James studied in the planet's education system and has served in numerous capacities in the capitalist slave trade; most recently as an architectural model builder. He has constructed many of the ships and items in this book and in several of the books to come. James, and his government-approved wife, raise a herd of young humans totaling 9 in all.
