Jeffrey A. Carver was a Nebula Award finalist for his novel Eternity's End. He also authored Battlestar Galactica, a novelization of the critically acclaimed television miniseries. His novels combine thought-provoking characters with engaging storytelling, and range from the adventures of the Star Rigger universe (Star Rigger's Way, Dragons in the Stars, and others) to the ongoing, character-driven hard SF of The Chaos Chronicles—which begins with Neptune Crossing and continues with Strange Attractors, The Infinite Sea, and Sunborn. The first three Chaos books are available on Smashwords with all-new Afterwords, featuring the author's reflections on the writing of these novels.
A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver lives with his family in the Boston area. He has taught writing in a variety of settings, from educational television to conferences for young writers to MIT, as well as his ongoing Ultimate Science Fiction Workshop with Craig Shaw Gardner. He has created a free web site for aspiring authors of all ages at http://www.writesf.com.

I liked this book. Perhaps because I am as old as the author, having a fable for science oriented books as grown up at a time where anyone believed in the power of science.
A great adventure, schizophrenic, about friendship with an alien parasite and not missing some kind of love story too.
I could not put my reader aside!

I am always on the look out for hard SF. When I do find it, usually the characters are lacking. Just bots to show off the shiny tech.
Not here. Carver has written plausible SF that has both science and heart.
