Static Push (ooh, I know what that means now) is a great science fiction novel. In fact, I do believe it is the best science fiction I’ve read without a cute robot in it.

Although it took a little time for me to get into this, once I got my brain into sci-fi geek mode, each time I picked this book up, I found it very hard to put down, as I was eager to find out what was going to happen next.

Static Push is a story of curiosity, loss, fear, teamwork, survival and hope. Some parts are rather emotion

When a group of scientists make a break through in their research they are haled as heros. They have done what everyone else thought was impossible and the universe has suddenly become a whole lot smaller.
The first few chapters cover how the team came together and the trials and errors of the experiment. Joel heads the team, more of a serious character, he is their rock even if they do try his patience when naming new technology. My favourite character though has to be Logan, a technician with

I was lucky enough to get this book for review from THE Book Club. I haven't read much Sci- fi for ages but it sounded interesting so I gave it a go & I am really pleased I did. The book moves at a great pace. I'm afraid most of the science- which I'm sure is very good- went way above my head & was filed away in the 'technobabble' drawer. That didn't matter. The characters, action, humour and events swept me along. I really enjoyed this book & I'm really looking forward to the next i ...more

Full disclosure!
I alpha read this book throughout its conception.
Finished a final read through very recently and still found it an entertaining and gripping ride.
A book full of colourful characters, spectacular scenes, and stylish storyline.
You won't be able to put this down till the last page, and then the first thing you will do is look up the authors blog to check on progress of the sequel.
Richard writes in a refreshingly modern style, combining humour and enough gravity to make the protagoni

I really enjoy science fiction and this did not disappoint. Capture my attention early in the book, the characters where eccentric, funny and answered the question of what would I do in that situation. I stayed up late reading as this was a page turner for me. The author put great thought into the plot and there were no quick fixes. Its a brave new world looking forward to the next installment!

What a great book!

The perfect mix of sci-fi with a splash of British humour :-)

It took me a little while to get into it but once I had I didn't want to put it down.

Peril, space, friendship and families with laughter thrown in too


Really enjoyed reading this one.

Excellent! Took me a while to get into and was a bit technical for my senior brain but I'm glad I struggled on! I will read this again before the next comes out because it IS a series I will follow! Thank you for renewing my love of sci-fi Mr Horsley

Went from reading The Martian straight on to this book - gotta say, I prefer this! Fantastic, well-spaced plot, especially from a debut author - highly recommended.

Different with a twist that hints at a God presence.

Tough to start with but I soon got into the snappy style and quirky humor. As I got into the main premise of the story I detected a sub message and felt compelled to journey with this family of miss fits to make sure they made it.

Copy&paste of the review I originally stuck on Amazon on completing this book:

Took me a while to get into this, but by the mid-point I found it thoroughly gripping, and I very much didn't want to put it down. I'll definitely be looking out for the next in the series.

Fun, entertaining, witty, downright side-splitting at times and incredibly engaging with tech and science that makes you think “hey! This could actually work!”

I loved this book. The characters are rich and in-depth, with great motivations and personal journeys that will run every emotion in your body under full-tension.

Well done to the author which I believe is his first work. Looking forward to seeing what comes next in this series.
