Humans never do invent suspended animation, faster than light ships or safe travel down worm-holes. So what does a history lesson on how humans really did colonise the galaxy have in common with the holiday of a life time, the girl of your dreams and a bunch of ruthless, sociopathic miners? Data detective Ben tries to find the answers, if only he can first discover where his mind went. Will he find out not only where he is but who he is, or will he end his days on a desiccated desert world, dodging lethal sandstorms and deadly machinery, where it seems his work-mates' favourite amusement is to put him in mortal danger? Perhaps the solution will be more alien than he ever expected.
From his early teens Peter Salisbury seized on anything science fiction: novels, comics and short stories. He then started on the classics and has been fascinated by tinkering around with words ever since.
Peter obtained a Chemistry degree at London University in the 1970s. Thereafter, he avoided chemistry during his teaching career, focusing instead on Communication Skills, General Science, and IT. In the 1990s, Peter wrote non-fiction professionally, abstracting from patents of chemical inventions for a London science publisher.
Peter Salisbury's first novel was published in 2009. More than a dozen books later, he still has many more stories to tell and he hopes you enjoy reading them as much as he enjoys writing them.
