Synopsis

Perplexed by an unearthly stranger's inexplicable appearances, Cosmologist Roger Shore is dismayed when the alien entity pointedly questions him regarding faster-than-light spacecraft development. Fascinated when his superior reluctantly reveals the existence of a covert effort to develop and implement FTL interstellar flight technology, he and a colleague are invited to lend their expertise and join the program. They become embroiled in successive, near-lethal interferences from a malicious, dedicated alien exotic. The stakes for success, Shore and his associates learn, are infinitely greater than imagined. A culture-defining benchmark, reaching the nearest stellar system, while a supreme technological triumph in itsellf, will apparently qualify humanity for inclusion in a nameless forum composed of myriad, diverse galactic intelligences.
 

About William Walling

   Born at an early age of mixed parents, and man and a woman, the author’s early childhood was a disaster; his imaginary playmate would have nothing to do with him, though he himself thought the kid was great. Since then it’s been all downhill.    Seriously, a former aerospace engineer, he spect several decades designing flight systems hardware at Lockheed Missiles & Space Company, where a career high was five years spent on a recently declassified project codenamed AZORIAN that successfully and ultra-secretly retrieved a Soviet era naval submarine from the deep Pacific north of Hawaii. TOMORROW, THE STARS  is one of ten novels published by Virtualbookworm.com Inc., eight in the vein of speculative fiction, one a historical novel, and the last a humorous satire of the aerospace industry.
