Book Description

After the death of his wife, Dr. Ryan Iverson turned love into a weapon. His creation, Angela, is an android that fools her targets into falling helplessly in love with her. As Deputy Director of Science and Technology at the CIA, his mission is to use Angela to seduce and destroy internationally wanted playboy and illicit travel book writer C.C. Go. His series of books,The Traveler's Companion, is an infamous guide for wealthy hedonists to indulge their every whim. The newest edition, however, only has one destination: the Zone, a place where mind creates matter, where the sick can be healed with a thought, and where a man's fantasies are made manifest. Dr. Iverson may be the only one who understands the potential dangers in a place C.C. Go calls the womb of creation: Reality doesn't stand a chance.


"The Traveler's Companion is a riveting psychological thriller, recommended." --Midwest Reviews

"The Travelers Companion pulls the reader through the pages. It is tight well woven plot with many satisfying moments and a superb, poignant, ending." --Read2Review.com

"Solaris" meets "The Thomas Crown Affair."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! 8 Jun. 2011
By Lyssa J. Stolte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a fantastic read! What happens when an alternate universe created by each specific individual is about to be released to the world? Especially after it is revealed that any length of time in "The Zone" causes insanity? Very exciting, well written. I loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent SciFi is a winner! 27 Jun. 2012
By AustralWind - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received the review copy as a LibraryThing Member's Giveaway and, after a couple of false starts with the electronic book, it finally gave me some hope for the future of writing and self publishing in the ebook format! This was definitely the sort of complexity and depth I was looking for - a book that would have stood tall amongst its fellows on the shelf in a library or bookshop.

Each of the main characters was well developed, including the clone/robot Angela, to a level where you are invited to like or hate, trust or fear, engage with their internal struggles as they are played out on the page.

The science of this science fiction seemed well researched and presented in a manner that was not too complex nor distancing of the reader. I found the underlying theme of the power of love, grief and loss as untapped sources of human creativity within this "world" to be quite resonant especially given I am an artist. The concept that this power could be harnessed to replicate our world including those we love in another Zone is not too great a reach from the bounds of possibility and this therefore made the story a whole lot more accessible.

Nice work, Mr Chater.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Old Fashion Style Sci-Fi 18 Jun. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Decently written science fiction in the vein of Lem's Solaris. Some parts get a little long winded but over all it is a nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, fun read 13 Sept. 2011
By Meggy in AZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! This was fantastic! At first I thought it was just going to be your average cloak and dagger tale, but with a futuristic bent (because one of the main characters is a clone with a computerized brain). Not so! It is all that, plus a twist I thought was really cool. There is, in this story, what I would call another dimension...or maybe an alternate universe...You'll have your own opinion, of course. This place is where most of the story takes place, and it is amazing. It is like a dream place, or a virtual world, or, according to one of the characters, Mr. C. C. Go, it just might be the womb of creation! It's called "The Zone" by Mr. Go, who is the one that discovered it. I recommend this book if you like science fiction and fantasy. Go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Example 21 Aug. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This novel effectively manipulates the science fiction genre. It plausibly combines known science with the futuristic idea of the relationship between man and machine. It uses the ideas and working theories of physics to present the human concept of loss, or rather, the power of loss to generate new creation. Chater writes, at the core, a story that explores the emotions that supreme loss can create. He depicts the determination to survive the overwhelming sense of defeat and lonliness that humans experience when loss is suffered. He does this against the backdrop of an explanation of the "what if" factor in life. This novel is an example of what science fiction can be when it is presented in its finest form--a well-written, well-told story.
