Description

Forever Curious is the mind-blowing debut exploring the very fabric of reality from short story writer Jetse de Vries, for fans of Alastair Reynolds, Greg Egan and Andy Weir.

In an intellectual clash of galactic proportions, the biggest mystery in the Universe encounters the smartest girl from Earth. Na-Yeli Maya is humanity’s champion exploring the forbidding Enigmatic Object. She’s not truly alone, as her exosuit is armed with the most advanced quantum computer—and obnoxious digital assistant—ever, and her tri-schizoid condition enables her to call up her ultimate warrior and lateral thinker personas in times of dire need.

She has to traverse six different layers—each a world of its own—with unique wonders, challenges and dangers. Along the way, she partners with a stranded Moiety Alien and adopts a group of Hypersounders, as they make it all the way into the Core, where a naked singularity distorts reality. Why is it there? If only they could find a way to use its other-worldly qualities for their own purposes. . .
