"High tech science fiction at its very best"
In the far distant future, mankind has been able to
terraform whole planets so that humans could colonize
them. Oskar DeSilvo is credited as the genius who brought
this process about but Anton Koffield declares that the
terraforming project is breaking down and if they don't
evacuate the planet millions will die.
Although the authorities have proof that DeSilvo is still
alive and has technologies that will save mankind, the
authorities want proof that the terraforming project is
imperfect. Koffield and his associates travel through a
time wormhole one hundred years in the past to locate
DeSilvo, get the technology, including the FTL drive and
save the future. Koffield also wants vengeance on the man
who destroyed his career.
THE OCEAN OF YEARS is high tech science fiction at its very
best. The time travel operation, intricate to the story
line, is both easy to understand and makes sense even if
one is not a quantum physicist. The hero is a driven man,
whom seems to place honor above all else, making him the
implacable enemy of the antagonist. Yet it is his thirst
for vengeance that ultimately leaves readers to wonder
whether humanity will survive (at least this novel). Fans
of Arthur C. Clarke will love this book.
