The Galactic Star Alliance has been alive and well for millions of Earth years. Hundreds of thousands of worlds and trillions of beings move across the many home worlds of the Alliance. This revelation invites many questions: How is faster-than-light speed travel possible, and could cohesive, interstellar civilizations exist without it? Is it conceivable to govern a coalition not of different countries, but of different species?
There are some who believe it is out there. Not as science-fantasy but as science.
We introduce Bernard William Hubert. World renowned astrophysicist, and lead scientist of the seminal company of exploration, Outer Limits. While on loan to CERN, a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions leaves Bernard as the sole survivor. While the scientific community and world look to him for answers, he simply states the unthinkable: "It has to be aliens." Inconceivable to the world, the Hubert family is investigated, and his family's name tarnished.
Disgraced and shunned, Bernard claws his way back into the equation with his new company C.O.R.E. as they work tirelessly to design an engine capable of interstellar travel.
Follow Bernard on his road to redemption and discovery in this ensemble cast of futurism, space travel, and the fate of our species. As for the title, from where would our judges watch us?
The Galactic Star Alliance awaits your exploration.
“An exercise in serious world building and storytelling seldom undertaken on this scale, especially by first-time novelists.” (Jeff Berkwitz, Sci-Fi Magazine)
“Galaxy-spanning science fiction with both smarts and hearts...and impressive, immersive world-building.” (Ron Marz, author of Green Lantern, Silver Surfer, Witchblade)
“Science fiction often asks us to reckon with the current zeitgeist while enveloping the reader in a saga that takes us far, far away from our everyday problems. If done successfully, it’s truly fantastic. And Beyond Kuiper is truly fantastic sci-fi.” (Joe Trohman, creator of Fall Out Boy)
