Overview

He crossed the stars to follow a song...so where's the singer?

Sandfly is free of the rules and free of Earth, but now there's a new mystery to solve.

With his female companion, HardCandy, and a secret ship named DarkTrench,
he travels across time and space to find the source and meaning of the transmission that changed his life.

When they arrive in the Betelgeuse system, they discover something the former crew did not--a planet. On it lives a civilization of humanoids that are technologically advanced, peaceful, and mystifying. Is their meeting an occurrence the Scriptures predicted? HardCandy thinks so. Sandfly is not so sure.

But what he most wants to know is why is he seeing things no one else can.

And where is the song that brought them here--or its singer? Where is the
Superlative Stream?

Editorial Reviews

Endrosement - Noah Arsenault
"I have a hard time calling this just a book. It is a masterful tale, woven with a different thread, and in colors mixed in a very unique way. It brings you in with its use of the present tense and futuristic dialogue. It is not just a book, but an enthralling, up-against-your-nose story...Nietz continues to astound me. 'Five stars,' I say without hesitation."
Endorsement - Kirk Outerbridge (Author)
"It is a testament to Kerry's immediacy of writing that I was halfway through the book before I realized it was written in present tense. The story drew me in once again to a completely foreign way of thinking and living...Highly recommended..."
Endorsement - Eric Wilson (Author)
"[Nietz] touches on the emotional disconnect that many people feel, and probes questions about our purpose as a species, as well as the futures of religion and faith. The search for truth is universal, and The Superlative Stream takes that search to the universe's edges, to the very places where the map ends."
Endorsement - Tim George
"Nietz writes in a way that makes me wonder what the masters of the genre like Asimov and Heinlein might have written had they known A-A3...And The Superlative Stream also leads me to speculate what C.S. Lewis might have done differently with his Space Trilogy had he better understood the genre..."
