Spotlight and giveaway: win an audio copy of Worldship Praxis by @jdlovil


Amazon | Smashwords | Createspace

Existence has a billion faces, each one an universe coexisting with our own.

In one such universe, disaster has struck the Earth. The near collapse of the Global Political and Financial structures came first. The eruption of a Super Volcano came next, with great damage to the Earth's environment. In the hardship that followed, some sought advantage, or perhaps revenge, in starting a short nuclear war. As if that was not enough, then the aliens invaded.

A hard existence will harden some people's resolve. A few Problem Solvers saw that the survival of Mankind depended in getting off of the planet. A group of them took humanity first into orbit, and then on to the stars.

We follow the great Worldship Praxis as it flies silently through the darkness between the stars on its mission. Jack Sadow is the Director, or captain of the ship. Effectively immortal, the Nanobots keep him young and strong, ready to face the centuries of the voyage.

Along the way, we watch the lives and activities of our human explorers. There are also many gene engineered animals aboard the ship, animals that do all of the typical animal things, but that also play chess, attend classes in the sciences, and sometimes do their chores.

Time and Light-years change Humanity. Jack must contend with a changing world within the ship and with alien life outside the ship. Each decision he makes as best he can, and only time and light-years will determine if he chose well.

On the survival of man:

It is the belief of the Author that we live in a universe, which is neither hostile to, nor kind to, our species. The world of organic matter and an almost unimaginable amount of time has made the transitional species we call Homo sapiens. Like all other life that has developed, our natures and abilities may enable us to survive, or we may become extinct. Are we to inherit the stars, or become a fading footnote in the book of life?

The universe is a cold place, and it is an absolute certainty that we will one day perish if we stay huddled on this one mud ball orbiting an aging star. The only way we have the chance for species immortality is if we spread our species among the stars.

In my book 'Worldship Praxis', I try to tell the story of the courage of Mankind. The Earth suffers a series of global threats in what may be a parallel Earth to our own. We have the potential to pick up the torch of exploration and knowledge, and chase down the monsters that threaten us that hide in the darkness between the stars. It is our choice.
