FEDERATION takes close encounters to a whole new level. A galactic empire of a quarter of a million worlds stumbles across the Earth. With elements of a political thriller, there is an intriguing storyline which addresses the environmental and myriad social problems faced by the world today.
The aliens’ philosophy on life is totally unexpected. With the help of intelligent automatons, they've turned what many on Earth believe to be a reviled political system into a utopia for the masses, but are they a force for good or evil, and will the wealthy make the compromises needed for a successful outcome?
A Daragnen university graduate, Yol Rummy Blin Breganin, discovers that Earth failed in its attempt to join the Federation, and, for some unknown reason, members are forever banned from visiting or contacting the planet. Rummy had never heard of a whole world being outlawed. Perhaps it would be sensible to leave well enough alone but no, he decides to investigate…
FEDERATION is the first in a trilogy of near-future, hard science-fiction novels by Tony Harmsworth, the First Contact specialist.

Tony Harmsworth began writing science fiction after a long and successful career in tourism. He co-founded the Loch Ness Centre and guided many VIPs in the Highlands including the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and his wife; the current emperor of Japan; and many universities and colleges.
He had long had ideas for novels but had previously not had the time to put them down on paper.
Today he has eight hard science fiction novels and two works of non-fiction.
5 stars Mourn Iain M Banks no more. He will always be missed, but we have a new star.
I have finally found modern excellent and what is more British science fiction. Finally we have a worthy successor to the much missed Iain M Banks.
The story romps along with a cast of interesting, and sometimes extraordinary characters.
This book is forming a new and, for me, an eagerly awaited new science fiction arc.
It is rare that I sit and read a book in one sitting, this one I did. Fabulous stuff I can't praise it enough.
