About the Series: TROJAN
In a near future world created from the reuniting of two disparate groups of Humans, worlds and years apart, the Earthsiders and Nefra come together in a hollow metallic moon called TROJAN.

Nefra (a Yenna word for humans with tails) have some advantages over typical Earthsiders, with large muscular tails, pheromone scenting, and greater life-span. But their world is collapsing under militaristic government and man-made pollution, and so they seek re-union with their origins.

Trojan is large, dense, and hollow. Nefra have developed gravitational technology that far exceeds Earth knowledge, and hints at inter-galactic travel, and perhaps even time travel, to which Trojan, a space-time flat environment, is the key.

Tension between Nefra and Earthsiders ultimately produces Trojans, the gritty people who live inside the hollow moon: the outpost of Earth, the beachhead of Nefra, the world famous weightless hospital serving the most severely injured from both sides, and the promise of greater joint efforts still to come.

Join us in exploring this fascinating new world and its people.

Brian Henry Dingle’s Trojan: Nefra Contact is a first contact story with a twist, between a pair of Nefra convicts and a UNSA team exploring a very new moon that appeared out of nowhere in Jupiter orbit. Mer, a Nefra whose intellect and desire to learn are in direct conflict with the worker class he was born into, has been imprisoned and sentenced to death by hard labour along with his friend Elper, far from the planet of his origin, for having exhibited the ability to read. Major James Edward Garth, of the UNSA, is about to have an unusual experience with the Law of Gravity, and these events will completely alter both their lives.

Trojan: Nefra Contact is a well-conceived science-fiction / adventure story, featuring some unique characters and strong plot twists. In some areas, the author’s depth of research on the scientific aspects has a tendency to take over the storyline, but overall, the story holds together despite the point of view slips into the omniscient. The suspense and action are well-paced, and the interaction between the characters offers welcome leavening to the book, along with well-set descriptions of space and the basic mechanics of moving and working in a space suit. Definitely a good read for readers of science-fiction or adventure.
