About the Author
Terry Martin was raised on the writings of Robert A. Heinlein and that school of science fiction. He has dabbled with writing for years and now follows his father and brother as a science-fiction novelist. Residing in Northern Virginia with his wife and two cats, two bunnies, and a beta who goes by the moniker "blue alien dog", he busies himself in writing the sequels to this adventure.

It may also be that the headlong pace of the novel and it's galactic scope owe a hat-tip to E. E. 'Doc' Smith, while the 'metaphysical' flavor seems somewhat reminiscent of John Dalmas. Regardless, fans of either of these writers may well delight in this author's work.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book (and it's sequel, Fountable II) and certainly hope the author is inclined to continue the series.
Readers who are less than fond of description are urged to reserve judgement until the end of Chapter 1. The pace begins to accelerate midway through that first chapter and builds rapidly thereafter. Skim through that first half of the first chapter if you must; it will likely be the last chance you have to ungrudgingly lay the book aside.
[NEW: The initial version of this review mentioned a minor problem with typos. The author read it and has informed me that he's since performed an extensive edit of both books in the series especially to seek out and destroy those blemishes. Extraordinary!!!]
The reason for the curious title is revealed in the last chapter. Sadly, for those seeking an immediate resolution of the mystery, it may require reading most of the book before the explanation given actually makes sense.
