About the Book

By the year 2050, great advances have been made in the realm of computer science, but the most sophisticated computer ever to have been built is about to be revealed to the world. The brainchild of Professor James Parton, a computer scientist, and Professor Maureen Hartley, a neurologist, Astra, by breaching the divide between inanimate machine and human consciousness, will lead not only these two brilliant Cambridge scientists and their PhD research assistant, Chester Wilkins, into strange and new dimensional experiences of space and time, but the whole of humanity to the very brink of extermination. Parton, Hartley, Wilkins and their team soon find themselves working against the clock to save the entire human race from what seems to be certain doom. With a bizarre potpourri of methods as diverse as they are seemingly unrelated, they set out on an adventure which is as exciting as it is dangerous.

About the Author

Francis A. Andrew was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He is not a scientist by training but has maintained a life-long interest in this area – particularly in the discipline of astronomy. Francis Andrew is highly indebted to Sir Fred Hoyle, Sir Patrick Moore and Professor Naline Chandra Wickramasinghe for arousing his interest in astronomy and for providing him with many of the ideas for both this and his other science fiction novels. Andrew believes that this genre of novel will play a significant role in constructing the bridge which will link the sciences and humanities in bonds hitherto undreamed of, and provide as much fascination for the unique horizons they will open up for the human mind as for the attainment of that most desirable of all goals, the greater welfare and survival of mankind as a species regardless of cultural differences. Francis Andrew is a lecturer in English at the College of Applied Sciences in Nizwa in the Sultanate of Oman.
