This futuristic novel delves into sci-fi questions about our own solar system and the idea of Hades. Was Earth just a mining penal colony to the worlds between Mars and Venus? And a Moon to one of the two planets? When a mining vessel crashes on Talmud, the planet sister to Mars, the colonists are stuck by the mysterious illness on board. As they haul the craft from the depth of the ocean, Lt. Commander Beckum is perplexed by the exoskeleton suit hanging from one of the blown portal doors. Who were these beings that tumbled from the nearby star-gate? To be released in 2022. Photo by NASA on Unsplash
