Overview


In the year 2034, a young woman named Mozelle Moi learns that her work as a test subject in a top-secret tachyon transmission project will soon be terminated. The purpose of the project has never been revealed to her; she only knows she is in love with David Kadin, a man she has met only through the tachyon cyberlink. Desperate not to lose her chance at love, she conspires with a programmer friend to join her with Kadin through the tachyon transmitter.

She succeeds—but the truth that awaits her at the end of the tachyon beam is one that will shatter not only her own ambitions of love, but the plans of a secret government program to establish contact with visitors from the stars. Trapped by her love for Kadin, and caught in a telepathic link with the ancient Talenki voyagers, Mozy's personal odyssey becomes irrevocably entwined with the fate of all of Humanity.

Combining visionary scientific speculation with passionate human characters, The Infinity Link is an epic work of transcendent science fiction and an exploration into the very nature of humanity.

Meet the Author


Jeffrey A. Carver is the author of many popular and highly-regarded science fiction novels, including the recently published ETERNITY'S END. His books combine hard-SF concepts, deeply humanistic concerns, and a sense of humor, making them both compellingly thought-provoking and emotionally satisfying. FROM A CHANGELING STAR was a Locus bestseller, and its sequel, DOWN THE STREAM OF STARS, was named one of the best SF novels of the year by Science Fiction Chronicle. Other novels by Carver include THE INFINITY LINK, THE RAPTURE EFFECT, and various novels of the STAR RIGGER universe, including STAR RIGGER'S WAY, DRAGONS IN THE STARS, and DRAGON RIGGER.

Carver is currently at work continuing the saga of THE CHAOS CHRONICLES, a grand scope hard-SF series inspired by the science of chaos. Science Fiction Chronicle named the first volume, NEPTUNE CROSSING, one of the best science fiction novels of that year, while Kirkus Reviews called STRANGE ATTRACTORS (Volume 2) "dazzling, thrilling, innovative." SUNBORN, the fourth volume of the series, was published by Tor Books in late 2008.

Carver has taught the craft of science fiction writing both through educational television and as the author of WRITING SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY, a free web-based course that teaches the fundamentals of storytelling and writing. A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver graduated from Brown University with a degree in English. He has been a high school wrestler, a scuba-diving instructor, a quahog diver, a UPS sorter, a private pilot, a freelance instructional and web designer, and a stay-at-home dad. He lives with his family in the Boston area, where he is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and The Authors Guild.

Read an Excerpt

Prelude

The wanderer slipped across space and time, sailing an ocean of darkness in which stars hung like lanternfish. Watchful eyes might have observed it shimmering out of focus, melting and recrystallizing--here now, gone now, always somehow creeping ahead of where the eye would look for it next. Mostly, though, it moved unnoticed. Space was vast, and life here was stretched thin, scattered among the light-years.

The wanderer, however, was not alone. Connections to other worlds sparkled and danced with life, despite distance, despite time. Tachyons spun out from its core at speeds close to infinite, carrying news, or greetings, or songs. A new world lay ahead, a world which they could not yet see, but could feel, a world from which a response had finally been aroused. Whether someone had deciphered their songs, or merely echoed with one of their own, was unclear. What mattered was the existence of the answer and its welcoming tone.

Time passed, and a host of new songs was spun. As the wanderer drew nearer, a messenger was observed departing from the destination world. It rose out of its sun's gravity well, climbing toward the wanderer, spouting a thin but energetic flame as it crossed the gulf.

Far outside the orbits of even the dimmest and loneliest of the planets of this star, the two bodies approached one another. One moved in a slow and deliberate curve, the other in a shimmering ripple--drawn together by mutual curiosity and the offering of a song.

    I read this book while stationed in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf

    I read this book while stationed in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War.  It provided a wonderful escape from the day to day uncertainty and drudgery of  a long and scary deployment. I thoroughly enjoyed the development of the characters, the intrigue and the story's conclusion. I only wish there had been another story with Mozelle.  I loved that character.
