Overview

The story of two men and the Universe they're exposed to. One man gets to see the very secrets of Creation itself and the other ends up living the most incredible adventure a man could ever conceive of in his wildest imaginings! The latter is accompanied in his adventures by a troupe of a dozen cloned French actors, six male and six female, with a spectrum of personalities and temperaments.

This is a character-driven story with intriguing situations of a far-reaching nature, dealing with the always-cogent concepts of being a stranger in a strange land, of the origins and very nature of the Universe and the basic American concepts of life, liberty and the pursuit of anybody who wants to stifle same. It has all the prerequisite technological wonders of a story set in the future, but is here handled a little more realistically than they might be in already accepted sci-fi franchises. You will love this book.

Meet the Author

Stephen Turner was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1951, and raised there and in the area as well. Since childhood, he's always wanted to be an automotive designer, but in his late teens, a certain landmark film changed all that! A movie that changed everyone's vision of the future of space travel and the look of sci-fi movies forever. He was dumbstruck, and immediately immersed himself in a project to emulate that film's story.

The result was the precursor to "The Last Voyage Of The Cassiopeia", a novel, spanning our own solar system, two time periods and quadrillions of miles of interstellar space. Mr. Turner maintains his own website, www.lastvoyageofthecassiopeia.com ("Stephen Turner's Cassiopiea Web Site") where you can link to Amazon for the print version as well as here, eBook site Mobipocket.com, as well as other eBook sites. Its three sequels, "Almagest", "3700" and "The Avedon Question" can be had in eBook form as well! And they can also be bought RIGHT HERE, at CreateSpace.com, in print form, so don't be hesitant to purchase them here!

As well as being an author, Mr. Turner is also a photographer and graphic artist, and examples of his work in these fields can also be seen at his website, along with excerpts from "Last Voyage" and its three already-written sequels. By all means, visit there and enjoy!

    If you're tired....

    ...Of preposterous and unfathomable sci-fi books which read more like disjointed dreams than real novels with believable characters and scientifically feasible situtations, than this is the book for you. The characters are beautifully fleshed out and a great potential source of enjoyment for the reader. The logistical and scientific aspects of this novel are much easier for the reader to accept than what you've probably been reading for the past thirty years.
