Following on from my best selling novel the Seventh Age and its sequel, the Forgotton Age, is this pure science fiction novella – the Next Age.

Prepare yourselves for a wild ride as you read about an apocalyptic possible alternative future for mankind. The Next Age follows our fight for survival in the thirty-second century. It’s not too late. We still have time to change our ways. This story need not become a reality…

For countless millennia we swallowed the myth perpetrated by the world’s many religions that we were the only sentient species in the cosmos made by an all-powerful God. As it turned out it was an arrogant belief. In the twentieth century, during the period known as the Cold War, between America and its allies versus the former Soviet Union and its acolytes, we revealed our existence to the universe by launching two probes into deep space. The whole event passed into history and was completely forgotten until the thirty-second century, when mankind got a wake-up call that none of us were prepared for.

Very entertaining sci fi thriller which takes place in a distant future where mankind seems to have made few advances politically which may account for our disappointing advances scientifically. When we have the advantage of contact with a more advanced species basically dumped in our lap, our old habits seem to ruin any positive outcomes for us.

I liked, very much, the relationship between the main character and the alien ship which becomes a very real character over time. Interesting study in geopolitics on a broader scale and a worthwhile, thought provoking read. I’m a little vague on some of the math involved in wormhole propulsion, but its an idea worth suspending your disbelief for and essential to the story.

Jack has shown us again that there is no limit to the boundaries of the imagination . Creating worlds , universes and the means to operate within them along with a host of lovable characters . Stretching the boundaries of imagination to open the mind to possibilities perhaps not considered . A must read series.

As one of the fortunate Beta Readers, I can tell you that this is a science fiction book in the best tradition’s of Arthur C. Clark and Isaac Asimov, written for the thinking man, but that doesn’t mean that it’s dull or slow reading – far from it.
The story starts by reminding the reader of our past endeavours to announce our presence to the Universe at large (bearing in mind one of our emissaries has just recently left our solar system and is now in interstellar space)
Did we REALLY think that all advanced extraterrestials HAD to be friendly?
Were we WRONG?
Warning – this story may have you diving for the chequebook, to sign up for the next spacecraft leaving Earth…..
