Summary

A mysterious lander is found on the far side of the Moon containing a glass bottle with a message in it for humanity. A space station and teams of scientists are sent to the edge of the solar system, further than anyone had ever ventured before. After two generations, the object under study had faded from the popular imagination. If it was only a natural phenomenon then why the warning to bring lots of guns?

When Carl Vandor signed up for the secret government project as a test pilot he had no clue what his real job would be. As the first time traveler he had only one problem. Determining the date when his spacecraft would time travel to was still a work in progress. At first all went well. Then a time jump leaves him desperately lost in time and space. As he and his AI autopilot, Ava struggle to find their way back home, they encounter mystery after mystery.

What were the secrets Ava was hiding from him? What were the strange glowing objects that sometimes darted faster than light between 3C-999 and interstellar space? Who was trying to kill them? With each time leap, he comes closer to discovering a use for time travel that could never have imagined.

Gutsy, intelligent time travel

I stumbled across John Stilwell while searching for some new Hard Sci-Fi late one evening... how is this Author so underrated!?
Great concept and storyline. This would make an excellent series.

Great Story!!!

Great story. You can tell a lot of research went into this book, even though it is SyFi. Well crafted and kept me interested throughout. I can't wait to read another book by this author.
