When Quantum Propulsion is finally cracked, making faster-than-light space travel possible, it gives NASA and the European Space Agency the opportunity to launch the Evolution and its crew, on a 29 year mission to reach and colonize an exoplanet light years from our own, in the hopes of making a new home for humanity before nuclear war eviscerates Earth. Jim Tale, captain of the mission, an unorthodox astronaut and intrepid to a fault, must overcome seemingly impossible challenges to accomplish his mission; a man who is also intent on finding the truth about our existentiality: was it God, the Big Bang, or something else that made it all - and he's willing to go to the edge of the Universe to find that truth.

Herb Baker, a 40+ year veteran of NASA, who has interacted with many astronauts in his time, had this to say in his foreword to Earth Escape...
"I’ve been lucky enough to meet and become friends with many American astronauts over that time and following along with this book’s brave, irreverent, plain-spoken astronaut Jim Tale reminded me of some of those real-life American heroes. No matter how dangerous and life-threatening their mission was, or how many unexpected complications they faced along the way, they were committed to completing their mission and always believed that the rewards were worth the risks."
- Herb Baker

"A fast-paced science-fiction novel that intertwines elements of suspense, romance, while tackling some of life's biggest questions…”
- Red City Review

Of you like Science Fiction surrounded by fantasy, this book is for you, if you like fantasy shot through with science fiction then this is the book for you, you are going down a corridor you are confident that you know just where this author is taking you and the direction that you were expecting does not exist, you are backtracking or going the opposite direction, it is like this most of the way through it {the book} I loved it you will also {most likely} I liked it so much that i am anxiously waiting the sequel, hope you do to! 
- D.M.

If the author 's name is "Real", then I am missing part of the quality of this author. The depth of his mind builds as he constructs the story. His creation of the final chapters and in depth philosophical presentation are impossible to describe, only reading it is meaningful. My words sounds like some type of hippie, but it is impossible to describe. I have read thousands of books and never taken to writing as I done hear. Can't wait for sequel.

“… a fast-paced odyssey beyond the very edge of the universe and into the void in this gripping, surprising, and very thoughtful science fiction novel.”
- Charles Freedom Long - author of Witches' Gambit

“It is a wonderful piece of speculative fiction, clearly inspired by the grand masters of the genre, Asimov, Clarke and Heinlein..." "…this is dystopian sci-f at its best. Highly recommended.”

About the Author

I crash landed on Earth and have been trying to get home ever since. Well, at least it feels like that sometimes.
Because I write in several genres, that is; crime, geopolitical thrillers, speculative fiction and literary fiction, I boxed it all up under the brand - Break Out Books, stories that push the envelope, pull back the curtain on uncomfortable truths and the Mediocrity, while giving readers a good ride and an escape to other realities.
