9780312942335: The Infinity Link

Science fiction novel. Synopsis:

In the year 2034, a young woman named Mozelle Moi learns that her work as a test subject in a top-secret tachyon transmission project will soon be terminated. The purpose of the project has never been revealed to her; she only knows that she is in love with David Kadin, a man she has met only through the tachyon cyberlink. Desperate not to lose her chance at love, she conspires with a programmer friend to join her with Kadin through the tachyon transmitter.

She succeeds--but the truth that awaits her at the end of the tachyon beam is one that will shatter not only her own ambitions of love, but the plans of a secret government program to establish contact with visitors from the stars. Trapped by her love for Kadin, and caught in a telepathic link with the ancient Talenki voyagers, Mozy's personal odyssey becomes irrevocably entwined with the fate of all of Humanity.

Combining visionary scientific speculation with passionate human characters, THE INFINITY LINK is an epic work of transcendent science fiction and an exploration into the very nature of humanity.

About the Author:

Jeffrey A. Carver is the author of more than a dozen character-driven SF novels, ranging from hard SF grounded in chaos theory (THE CHAOS CHRONICLES) to the more fantastic far-future star travel stories of the Star Rigger universe (STAR RIGGER'S WAY, DRAGONS IN THE STARS, DRAGON RIGGER, and others).

His work has been called "dazzling, thrilling, innovative..." by Kirkus Reviews. Booklist said, "Carver's new yarn has all the ingredients for well-deserved popularity: an original creative angle using the budding science of chaos theory; an intriguing alien life-form in the symbiotic quarx, Charlie; and an irresistibly readable story line." Publishers Weekly said, "Carver masterfully captures the joy of exploration."

Carver was for two seasons the developer and on-air host of SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY WRITING, an interactive television production broadcast to middle school classes across the nation.

A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver has lived in New England since graduating from Brown University in 1971 with a degree in English. He has been a high school wrestler, a scuba diving instructor, a quahog diver, a UPS sorter, a word-processing consultant, a private pilot, and a stay-at-home dad. He lives with his family in Massachusetts, where he is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and The Authors Guild. His interests include science, religion, nature, underwater exploration, and flying.

Review:

"A rich novel of immense scope, with the most detailed and brilliant descriptive passages of empathic and telepathic communication. Highly recommended." --SF AND FANTASY REVIEWS

"A long, ambitious work, painted on a canvas as big as the solar system. The concept itself is even larger--the eventual linkup of various intelligent life forms of our galaxy, including humans, whales and several alien races. Carver carefully sets up his story and develops it in a meticulous fashion...it works very well." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"A complex, rich, and satisfying novel." --FANTASY REVIEW

"A compelling vision of our world on the day after tomorrow." --Joan D. Vinge, author of THE SUMMER QUEEN

"A satisfying and rewarding visionary experience." --ANALOG -- Publisher Comments
