A century after nations of earth united to end radical Islam, global society is finally at peace. Fossil fuels have become obsolete, ending the disparity between rich and poor in oil-rich nations. Both Eastern and Western faiths have lost their appeal with the masses, and only a few carry on the traditional rituals of religion.

Life is good for Jefferson Alvarez who prefers the name Stone. A Geologist by trade he could never imagine where his path in life will lead. Meanwhile, Samantha Williams and Argo Trillian will prove to be key players in reestablishing the lost faith and beginning the world's journey to enlightenment.

In the year 2115, events are set in motion that lead to the truth about humanity and answer questions we have long pondered. How can we propel matter at light speed? Could the sighting of ghostly apparitions mean that a parallel dimension exists? Could this dimension be key in making travel in the solar system and beyond practical? Is time travel commonplace among advanced civilizations? Does a god exist, and if so, was Jesus of another kingdom as he claimed? Are we alone in the universe?

This science fiction novel explores a future in which truths are revealed that will change the course of humanity's destiny forever.

From the Author:

It seems like every month a new headline comes across that makesme shake my head.  Ever wonder howscientists can be so certain about claims they make regarding celestial bodiesthat reside countless light years away?
 
Edge of Infinity goes where no science fiction novel hasventured. Star Wars is great but why are all sci fy stories based on good guysfighting bad guys or alien creatures?  Ohsure it makes for a great plot but that has to be a more creative idea whenenvisioning what the future may hold.
 
In astronomy our Cosmos is defined by many concepts that weaccept as fact. But these are simply conclusions drawn by someone's best guessand general acceptance by experts and laypersons alike. Everything that we knowis subject to change. Case in point is Pluto.Planet or simply a large object orbiting the sun like so many other KuiperBelt citizens?
 
         Recently a WhiteHouse spokesperson coined the term alternate fact as a way of explaining asituation that seems to be otherwise.  Thisworks well to understand the alternate reality that some politicians live inbut does little establish credibility. We are told that the big bang was thebeginning.  But what if the big bang wasa cyclic event? I can neither prove or disprove this theory but it certainly wouldsupport the chicken or egg argument. How can we be so certain that the big bangwas the beginning?  Perhaps the Universeeventually collapsed on itself as black holes consumed their galaxies.Eventually the black holes met in cataclysmic collisions the larger consumingthe smaller until there was only one entity remaining.  Sounds feasible to me.
 
Occasionally artifacts are discovered that cannot beexplained.  The 300 million year oldscrew imbedded in a rock? The implication is certainly clear.  But little fanfare seems to be given to theseanomalies.  The government continues totreat us like children who cannot handle the truth about UFO's, alienabductions and first contact. We must rely on our own instincts to filterthrough what we perceive as real. Do you believe in ghostly apparitions? Theysay seeing is believing.  I have not seenone but there are so many reported sightings that it makes one wonder.  Perhaps at death we cross over into anotherdimension.
 
Imagine for a moment the universe when seen from afar appears asa single point of light floating in the vacuum of space.  As we approachthis object it expands into panorama of 170 billion galaxies.
 
seen from space there is little detail other than the outline ofcontinents and enormous expanses of ocean. From our starting point where theUniverse appeared as a single speck of light we have now arrived at one of thesmallest particles that is contained in that speck of light. That is unless we continueour journey using a microscope.
 
Ifyou are reading this introduction you are aware of the Large Hadron Collider. In 2012 the discovery of a new particle was created.  It was named the Higgs Boson or simply the Godparticle. Is it possible that his particle is someone's Universe? Looking inwardwe see the God particle. Looking outward we eventually look back and see thatspeck of light that we call the Universe. From this vantage point is it notfeasible that there are other specks of light. numbering in the billions.  Each one being a Universe in itself. 
 
Doyou believe in Humanity's concept of a god?Was there really a man named Jesus who walked on this planet over twothousand years ago?
 
Ihave just described what awaits you when you read Edge of Infinity.
 

From the Back Cover:

Roads are handy for short jaunts like the ones I used to take to the impact site. My all-terrain vehicle is a relic, but the solar turbine engine still whined sweetly whenever I had time to explore my surroundings in search of artifacts from the distant past. What I found strewn before me on one visit was extraordinary.Smoldering craters resembling miniture volcanoes peppered the landscape. Approaching the nearest one, I found a large section of a copper-hued metal frame jutting from a jagged opening. The fuming trenches revealed more artifacts. I found thermos-sized canisters lined up neatly in a fractured but mostly intact closet-like structure. I tried to lift one out for inspection but could not budge it. I assumed the objects to be homegrown space junk returning to Earth, but to my surprise the heavyweight containers turned out to be priceless.Several months passed with little fanfare, and I was assigned to the Planet Neptune. I am now orbiting Triton, one of its moons. Engineers commissioned a final review of a platform designed to support laser regenerators on the frozen surface. The equipment is necessary to boost the link with ships traveling beyond the solar system.
