W.R. Edmunds is a burgeoning new science fiction author who likes to use loquacious words* such as "burgeoning" and "loquacious". Part time IT monkey, part time general contractor, part time dance instructor, he decided to add self-publishing an episodic novel to the list of things he does, successfully finding yet another end at which to burn the candle.

*These words will likely not appear in any commercially released writing due to the author wanting to actually succeed.

Description: Sixty years from now, the Earth is in a state of environmental collapse. Colonization of Mars and the construction of asteroid arcologies has begun to try and relieve the pressure of an expanding population, but the process is too slow. A chance discovery of an ancient alien space craft on Mars holds the secret to faster than light travel, but this wondrous technology may come with a higher cost than humanity is willing to bear.
