The ascendancy of mankind is being decided on Jupiter

In the 22nd century, mankind assimilated the Solar System within the orbits of the inner planets, and was gradually moving further out, beyond the asteroid belt, onward towards the outer planets.

The recently discovered technology of remote manipulation gave people the capability of altering the orbit of celestial bodies of planetary size, which laid the foundation of a new era for the human race: the terraforming age. The colonization of space beyond the limits of the Solar System became only a matter of time.

Soon after the first successful test, changing the orbit of Mercury, a strange object moving from the depths of space towards the centre of the Solar System entered the field of vision of a telescope at an observatory in Chile…

More About the Author

Albert Sartison first became acquainted with games theory when he was a student. Since then, he has been fascinated by complex multiple-move strategic games in politics and economics. In such situations, the apparent freedom of action of the parties involved is in fact restricted by the bounds of economic and political feasibility, which at times leads to improbable consequences.

The history of modern civilization includes many wars and political and economic crises which began as minor contradictions or local conflicts and escalated into global cataclysms on a planet-wide scale. Man has a highly developed intellect which enables him to assess his actions critically and analyse complex situations. As an individual, he is capable of rational reasoning. Is this applicable to human civilization?

In his first work, "The Contact", the author studies the reaction of the human race to a visit by a mysterious visitor from the remote depths of space. The work is remarkable primarily for its rapid narrative tempo, the fascinating development of events, the realism of the situations and the strategic games between the parties involved: the aliens on one side and the human scientists, politicians and generals on the other.

In "The Contact", against a background of good intentions, a massive conflict looms, threatening to run out of the control of human civilization and end in disaster for it. What were the aliens' intentions in visiting the Solar system? Can mankind survive this event as a developed civilization, or is it foredoomed?

3.0 out of 5 stars The contact Books 1 - 3 7 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All very real and acceptable scenarios for first contact with ET/Alien. (??) Good in depth thought regarding concepts of communication and deciding questions to ask. Sub plots was acceptable if doubtful - there are always hawks spoiling for a fight to upset the tree huggers. Book ended and so did the series - mid sentence. Did the author get tired of the idea - who knows! Spoilt the series without driving it to a closer resolution. Not recommended and unfinished piece of work - only half a painting so to speak.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 3 May 2014
By Anagram
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read and enjoyed the previous two episodes, I am rather disappointed in this one. At the end I felt that the story had not moved on at all. I fully understand that all the machinations of the scientists and military would probably play out in real life exactly as in the book, but there was too much focus for me on this aspect. Page after page of the fine detail seems like self indulgence by the author. I await the next episode, but after that I may lose patience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story so far? 18 April 2014
By Peter R Germani - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is really well done and moves along well but at this point it's time to get on with it.
It's great to do a series of books but not this way, too much time in between and you become disinterested. The first three installments and most likely the fourth should have been incorporated into one book.
Get it finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Increasingly riveting 21 May 2014
By Meghan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the previous two books in this incredibly addictive series, I eagerly “devoured” (pardon my language) ‘The Contact: Episode Three’ as soon as I learned that it’s finally out. The things I loved in Episodes 1 and 2, I found more of them in the third episode as author Albert Sartison further pushes the envelope as far as suspense is concerned.

I realize that what makes ‘The Contact’ tick is the sheer absence of definite answers—you get this strange object, and people from different walks of life respond to it in their own way—much like in Crichton’s ‘Sphere’, a deeply compelling story that fleshes out the flawed psychological aspects of what it means to be human. In Episode Three, there is much progress in terms of communicating with the strange object, brought home by General MacQueen’s hard-lined militaristic plans about the artefact. This third episode is much more enjoyable, and with the fourth and final episode scheduled to be released in a month, I can’t wait to finally read the conclusion.

Overall, ‘The Contact’ continues to give us the screaming mimies—kudos to author Albert Sartison for his uncanny ability to sustain interest. In any case, get a copy of this book—but get first the previous two episodes for full enjoyment. Two thumbs up!
2.0 out of 5 stars Installment Story 19 Jun 2014
By Stan Martin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought the story has potential, found the writing good and the description of events detailed but quite believable. The negative to me was; like other reviewers, I felt this was a serial rather than a novel. The "episodes" are not freestanding stories and must be read in order. With better planning, it could have been a good novel or two but goodness knows how much longer it can drag on as a serial. I liked it but I'm stopping now, having read Episode 3. I hope this style of writing is not a glimpse into the future of e-books.
2.0 out of 5 stars Why do they call this book "The Contact"??? 12 Jun 2014
By Thom Hackworth - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The egg heads are still talking about it, military has swooped into action like it's always protrayed. Now space pirates! AND as yet no one has set eyes on the "arrivals. Just a word on all the science, at least in radio communication, you never, never, ever say,
OVER AND OUT. If you don't know why ask someone who knows.
2.0 out of 5 stars I am tired of "episode" books 11 Jun 2014
By Tommy in Nashville - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am tired of "episode" books that are way too short and have no comments indicating the the possible number of future episodes. Albert Sartison is an exception with the The Contact series. Albert notified his readers he would no be able to complete the series in three episodes and a forth would be required.
