Infinite by Jeremy Robinson
Infinite - Jeremy Robinson

Synopsis:

"SEARCHING FOR A NEW HOME...

The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries fifty scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope.

After ten years in a failed cryogenic bed--body asleep, mind awake--William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.

It is not the last.

When he wakes from death, William discovers that all but one crew member--Capria Dixon--is either dead at Tom's hands, or escaped to the surface of Kepler 452b. This dire situation is made worse when Tom attacks again--and is killed. Driven mad by a rare reaction to extended cryo-sleep, Tom hacked the Galahad's navigation system and locked the ship on a faster-than-light journey through the universe, destination: nowhere. Ever.

Mysteriously immortal, William is taken on a journey with no end, where he encounters solitary desperation, strange and violent lifeforms, a forbidden love, and the nature of reality itself.

...HE DISCOVERS THE INFINITE."

 

Loved this book! It was totally different from the author's other works and it was simply fantastic!
I highly recommend this one for, not only sci fi fans, but for anyone wanting to read something new and different. You will not be sorry!

5 stars and a favorite!

Christian Ward pointed out he worked on this, and his work is rougher
Infinite Vacation - Nick Spencer,Christian Ward

Let me translate: this is still transcendently gorgeous, but I improved upon that later.   

 

Sighs.   If I didn't have that not-so-secret Nick Spencer boycott, I'd totally do it.  I've purchased both ODY-C - all I can find - and Black Bolt, and I feel really shitty about one writer making poor decisions with a character influencing me not supporting Ward.   I will do this: spread the word.   He's amazeballs.   He's been super nice to me on Twitter, and this is, quite frankly, after I read Black Bolt #1 and fell in love with his work.  

 

Love.   So.   Much.   

 

I will also look for whatever he illustrates - that isn't written by Spencer - and buy that.   I'm so, so close to breaking my Spencer boycott but I know I won't like it: I'll be influenced by what Spencer's done later on and mostly feel shitty reading it.   

 

I will also look into if Ward has some kind of Patreon or something where I can make a small donation.

 

...

 

So, I'm not e-mailing him about a commission, but I really, really, really want to...

Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff - Michael Nesmith

Wow, this was an interesting book. I did not know a lot of things about Michael Nesmith, but I do now. I could amaze you with the trivia I learned, but you will just have to discover it for yourself.

Okay, okay, did you know that Davy Jones was on the Ed Sullivan show the same night as The Beatles were for the first time? He was starring in the play "Oliver" and was with some of his cast mates. Don't remember him being on the show? Seriously?

Michael Nesmith calls his book an autobiographical riff which is exactly how its written. I thought it was funny while reading the book that he sounded like an old musician. I don't really remember The Monkees being known for their musical abilities but apparently they had some. Well, at least Michael had some.

Thanks to Crown Publishing for approving my request to read this very interesting title and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
