From the Author
As an additional challenge, I thought it would be interesting to tell Eric's story from the viewpoint of the "sidekick", his long-time friend, "Rock" Chandler.
To my great surprise (and pleasure), it took on a life of its own and turned out great. If you like "hard" science fiction, I think you'll enjoy this yarn.
