In the year 2140 CE, Planet 9, more commonly known as Vixus, has resurfaced on the edge of the Milky Way... the only known planet that periodically reverses its rotation. Last seen in the middle of the Kuiper Belt in 2066 CE, it mysteriously disappeared after being discovered by a Galactic Corps scout ship. The unknown energy source enabling Vixus to spin in opposite directions represented great power which could help turn the tide in a war Earth was losing.
The Fighting Fury, the Corps' finest platoon, has been called in to conduct a search and rescue operation for several missing landing parties. Following a fierce battle on the planet surface, Lieutenant Janet "Cat" Miles, leader of this elite group of combat women, was captured. She soon found herself imprisoned with the Corps' most fabled leader, Commander Jason Cody. His name would forever be linked to the infamous wormhole hidden on Neptune's dark side; an area of space now cautiously avoided by all due to the menace which lurks within.
Paranoia raced through both leaders' minds. Could he trust a woman who seemingly had no imperfections? Could she trust a man who had vanished from sight years ago? Earth's future laid in the balance as they struggled to overcome their mutual distrust and acknowledge what those before them understood: "If you live long enough, the wisdom will come."

About the Author

Marc enjoys playing tennis, basketball, and going for long walks with his two dogs: Elvis and Sweet Pea. Raised in a musical environment, songs of all types continually flow throughout the Corwin household. He and his wife, Judy, have been happily married for thirty-seven years and enjoy traveling in their retirement years. Marc has requested all feedback regarding the Optical Lasso be sent to: As a young man, Marc’s father grew up in the Chicago theater business working with the Mirisch brothers. He fell in love, relocated to Indianapolis, IN to marry, and developed a successful chain of music stores. Walter, Marvin, and Harold Mirisch sought fame and fortune out west in Hollywood and struck it rich making movies the likes of The Pink Panther, In The Heat Of The Night, West Side Story, The Magnificent Seven, Some Like It Hot, and The Great Race, just to name a few! A Chevy Chase style vacation to visit his buddies in California further helped define Marc’s childhood. Posing with Tony Curtis for pictures on the set of The Great Race and seeing the sights of Los Angeles with Walter Mirisch in his Rolls Royce solidified Marc’s imagination and love of the movies at an early age.
Working in the family music stores while growing up, he played the trumpet and was rewarded with a rare disc jockey Decca demo record of The Beatles singing My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, the fab four’s first commercial recording made in Germany when Peter Best was still the band’s drummer. The record shop was conveniently located next to the local drug store where Marc spent most of his money on the ever-popular Marvel and DC comic books.
Watching the Pebble Beach golf tournament on television while suffering through winter after winter in the Midwest, motivated Marc to pack up his belongs upon graduating from Indiana University, and driving out west to sunny, San Diego. There, he began his new life working for a public accounting firm, where he met his future wife, Judy, a green-eyed blonde college gymnast, born in Indiana, whose parents relocated to California only ten days after her birth. What more could a transplanted Hoosier ask for than a woman with a sense of humor who loves all things basketball?
