The 8th launch of a colony ship toward a new Earth-like world was to continue the dispersal of mankind throughout the stars, after man destroys Earth's ecosystem. However, launch 8 does not go as planned, and the ship is considered lost after all communication with it ceases. This is the story of what happened to it.
Sci-fi, adventure, g-rated
Jack Phylbin and Ted Rankin are about to begin an adventure that takes them on a journey neither of them would ever have expected - a journey through time and space, right here on Earth.
What they discover when they begin exploring the bottom of an old water well that went dry on Jack’s ranch will have a profound impact on all mankind.
I read the book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. It's my kind of Sci-Fi. Lots of technology, and of course, an unknown alien as first contact. A great way to end the shuttle era.
The plot was very good, and the characters real. Judging from the ending, I hope that there is going to be a sequel.
Riveting story of a young girl caught in a classroom of the not-too-distant future with a forbidden book - the Bible. She is sent to a "resort" for correction.
Also about the two men who care enough about her to try to help her.
I'm very much afraid this is where our country is headed.
Warning! It's a one-stop read! You won't be able to put it down once you start.
"Test Planet 01" is a well written short story of one boy and his robot companion's (but it IS more than a robot!) adventure on a new world, and what he discovers there that _ _ _ well, I almost gave it away!
Good read for when you don't have all day to read one.
Good job Jen!
