Oblivion now available

Oblivion, third book in the Spaceforce series, is now available here in the US, and here in the UK!    It’s a whole world, after all Fantasia is the Galaxy’s ultimate holiday destination, the greatest theme planet in the United Worlds of Earth. It’s wholesome fun for all the family – until Fantasia’s top engineer Karen Chase plummets to her death at the opening ceremony of The Plunge, the planet’s most ambitious ever thrill ride. When Jez and Andri are sent to investigate the gruesome accident, they soon find that all is not what it seems. Meanwhile, Jay is also heading for Fantasia, out to avenge the death of a fellow agent.

It’s twenty minutes of sheer terror.” Asked whether the ride was inspired by the ancient fantasy tale Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Dr Chase admitted, “No, by a physics problem I was set at school on simple harmonic motion. What would happen if you could jump through the centre of a planet? The answer – that gravity would make you bounce back up – was so counterintuitive that I wanted to make a ride of it one day!” And is the mass of Fantasia, which is technically only an asteroid, really sufficient to cause this effect? “Dreamcrafters have their ways of weaving magic.” The Plunge opens 25th...
