Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite The Speed of Darkness: A Tale of Space, Time, and Aliens Who Love to Party is a hard science fiction novel written by Mendy Sobol. Roy Geiger and Jeffrey Graham had grown up, attended Admiral Farragut Academy and gone on to Annapolis together, but Roy always knew it was Jeff's star that Roy followed. So it was quite fitting and appropriate that he was Jeff's First Officer of Grissom Base on Io, one of Jupiter's moons. Jeff woke him up each morning for their joint workout session, breakfast, and then, if Jeff could persuade him, Roy would settle in for some dreaded paperwork. This morning was different, however, after Jeff left to consult with Engineering about stress fractures and Roy was watching the sun rise while finishing breakfast. He noticed a notch in Daedalus Crater's rim appear and grow larger. He immediately ordered that the General Alarm be sounded and directed all personnel to proceed immediately, by ladder-way, to level 1. Mendy Sobol's hard science fiction novel, The Speed of Darkness: A Tale of Space, Time, and Aliens Who Love to Party, will thrill readers who grew up reading classic science fiction stories about trips to outer space and probably inspire a lot of younger readers to consider checking out the works of Asimov, Clark and other classic science fiction writers. The Speed of Darkness has a fabulous plot about one man's dream to exceed the speed of light and how he plans to make this dream become a reality. Along the way, there's a masterful presentation of science history, particularly in the quantum mechanics and quantum physics realms. Sobol's characters are vividly drawn and portrayed, and his writing is fluid and precise. This fast-paced and exciting story had me falling in love with hard sci-fi all over again, and I enjoyed every minute I spent reading it. The Speed of Darkness: A Tale of Space, Time, and Aliens Who Love to Party is most highly recommended.
