The Spolding Conundrum is Mark Noble Space Adventure 4. It is advised, but not essential, to read Moonscape, Moonstruck and Trappist-1 first.
The Spolding Conundrum is book four in the exciting Mark Noble space adventures series.
Following Moonscape and Moonstruck, Mark’s team of entity-enhanced humans set off to Trappist-1 in the search for an Earth-like planet. The newly discovered spolding drive, which exploits the difference between normal space and the dark universe, cuts travel time to fractions of what might otherwise be needed.
At the end of Trappist-1, book 3, the depleted crew make the horrific discovery that something has gone terribly wrong. The world is different, satellites have vanished, the space station has gone, and only astrophysicist Mary has the slightest idea why.
After the shocking revelation that the problem was caused by the spolding drive, the crew try to analyse what happened and how they might return to their own Earth. Is backtracking the answer? They decide that they have no alternative other than to try. If it didn’t work, they could wander, lost, through the local universe until their supplies eventually ran out.
Back in the Trappist-1 system, they learn that things have changed there too, but the biggest surprise is encountered when they orbit the frozen surface of icy planet G. They hear distinct radio signals from the surface.
The discovery makes it even more imperative to return to Earth, and soon. There is far more at stake than just the lives of the Spirit crew. Hundreds more are threatened with the inevitability of a long drawn out death.
Just when plans are beginning to look promising, another paradox hits the crew. One with incredible repercussions.
Will rescue arrive in the nick of time? Find out in The Spolding Conundrum!
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 nine 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.
