Oberlux

Rated 4.86/5 based on 8 reviews
Can anyone say no to a young lady asking for help? Especially a young lady as beautiful, intelligent and engaging as Suszaja. Neither could the crew of the Oberlux, but do they understand the consequences of their decision? More

About JDeWayne Pierce

I write about a future with endless wonders and fantastic technologies. Places where fulfilling lives are ahead for anyone brave enough to dream of greater things to come.
I wrote my first short story, that was not a homework assignment, at the age of 10. Most likely it was the result of growing up as a "Base Brat" courtesy of the USAF. I always had a different outlook on things.
I have lived in the following States of the USA: VA, TN, MT, MS, IL, TX and have visited about 35 or so of the other States. I have also lived in Okinawa, Kuwait, Vietnam, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Saudi Arabia.
My most memorable vocations have been; US Marine, Radiochemist and Chemistry Shift Supervisor.
My hobbies are also quite diverse; Amateur Astronomy, Astrophotography, Philately, Numismatics and Amateur Philosophy (I say what I think).
I live with my wife Patricia, and my imaginary time machine in Rock Spring, Georgia.
Look for the second novel in my 'Earth Steps Forth' series - 'Power of the Cross' in late 2013.

I really got into this, it has been a while since I read this type. I wish you had said this was part of a series, some of us may not live to see the end. Very entertaining though, wish I knew the end, before mine.

Review by: Nicholas Hoover on July 10, 2013 :
Compelling book with some great ideas. I'm not sure the Hard sci-fi classification is appropriate as I thought there were some questionable scientific things happening, but maybe invention is that easy with AI around! Reminded me of the format of the original startrek with Riddles for the Captain and XO to solve on the planets that they arrive at.

I am not into Sci-Fi normally, but this book had a great group of characters that kept you enthralled by the story. Oberlux is written in a very descriptive way that helps you picture every scene. Excellent read!

A very good book to read, fast paced, an interesting concept of a FTL drive. Looking forward to any other books from this author.

Review by: Rina Grant on April 21, 2013 :
This is a very atmospheric book, an example of true classic sci fi where extraterrestrial settings don't outstage human dramas. The author populates his book with some memorable and very strong characters like Canella, Captain Steward and others whose longing for knowledge and justice adds an extra dimension to the story. True to Arthur C. Clarke's realistic depiction of space travel, Oberlux is a fine story written from the heart.

I am not a sci-fi guy but since author J. Dewayne Peirce was once my boss in a nuclear power generation plant and always friend I decided to read. It was intriguing from the first and kept me riveted in the excitement. Although I don't believe in evolution(darwinian) but believe God has given us such imaginations as Gen 11:6 alludes to that this book will keep you thinking. It is very exciting and I can't wait till next sequel. Knowing the author and some of life experience made me chuckle as I know where some of stories in book came from. If you are not a sci-fi person-you will still enjoy, I did! As you read remember it's not the gospel-the Bible is:)

Review by: Crystal Dawn on Feb. 15, 2013 :
This book takes you on a wild, faster than the speed of light ride to a far away galaxy. You hit both the highs and lows of alien civilizations as you meet the inhabitants of the worlds along the way. It starts out with an optimistic view of Earth's possible future and shows you some intriguing scientific inventions that may be in it. It stretches the imagination and makes you wonder what awaits us out there. Anyone who likes sci/fi should like this book.
