Book Description

Perplexed by an unearthly stranger's inexplicable appearances, Cosmologist Roger Shore is dismayed when the alien entity pointedly questions him regarding faster-than-light spacecraft development. Fascinated when his superior reluctantly reveals the existence of a covert effort to develop and implement FTL interstellar flight technology, he and a colleague are invited to lend their expertise and join the program. They become embroiled in successive, near-lethal interferences from a malicious, dedicated alien exotic. The stakes for success, Shore and his associates learn, are infinitely greater than imagined. A culture-defining benchmark, reaching the nearest stellar system, while a supreme technological triumph in itsellf, will apparently qualify humanity for inclusion in a nameless forum composed of myriad, diverse galactic intelligences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomorrow, The Stars September 24, 2012
By Tammy
Format:Paperback
The orbiting Galileo Observatory suddenly has an unexpected unearthly visitor on board who has many questions about the "faster-than-light development". Roger Shore, Cosmologist, finds this new uninvited guest to be very strange and disturbing. Later on Roger finds out his director reveals plans to make interstellar flight a reality.

It's not everyday when you have an unearthly creature appear out of nowhere, but when Roger went back to listen to the recording he only heard one voice and it was his. At this point I felt the book added an air of mystery. As each new character was introduced, the book stated to take off and I was anxious to see what was going to happen next.

The journey begins with a crew in transit to Demeter's Base to find out more about star flight. Joining this crew is Roger Shore , Alexis and a colleague of Roger's. What they will learn here is far from what anyone could have ever have imagined.

This book is packed with aliens, mystery and a very vivid colorful imagination on the author's part, which I enjoyed immensely. He has written in a way that you are so caught up and fascinated you will find it hard to let go once you reach the end of the book. It will leave you with a ton of questions about space travel and the stars above us and you will find that your own imagination will be going wild thinking about the many possibilities in the stars. A must read for curious science fiction avid readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Also known as: The World I Left Behind Me (1979) September 20, 2005
Format:Paperback
I came here looking for a sequel to "The World I Left Behind Me" by William Walling...because it's a pretty good SF novel from the 70's and it is well written, similar to Heinlein's style in many respects - showing great promise, at least to ranking up there....Anyway, for this book I discovered that it has been renamed "Tomorrow, the Stars" which may sound familiar as Heinlein has a book by that very title...but nothing else is the same (whew!).

Suffice it to say that the description above is what happens in the book, but the description goes too far...and is not as attractive as the description for the original book...

read this book if you like straightforward hard SF, it's actually pretty good.

(like I say, I was looking for a sequel)

I hope this helps...

More About the Author

Born at an early age of mixed parents, a man and woman (this must be made clear nowadays), my early childhood was a disaster. My imaginary playmate would have nothing to do with me, though I thought he was the greatest.
Since then it's been all downhill.

Seriously, I'm a former aerospace engineer (Lockheed Missiles & Space Co., later with a developer/vendor of Flight Motion Simulators, and later still as technical journalist for a developer/vendor of GPS Systems). Some time ago, I took up writing science fiction as an avocation. First published during the dark ages (1970s hardcover sf novels by then-Doubleday & Co., and St. Martin's Press, plus magazine shorts, novelettes, a co-authored serial novel, and a science article). Currently, nine of my self-published novels (eight "hard" speculative fiction, the ninth a humorous spoof on the U.S. aerospace industry), are available as softcover books, as well as ebooks, and a tenth title only as a e-book.
