Earth Escape – foreword by Herb Baker

Earth Escape - 18 Sept 2017

Foreword by Herb Baker
Have you ever wondered how our universe was created? Was it the hand of God – or was it the Big Bang? Or maybe even some combination of the two? Or is there another explanation? If you’re interested in debates on that subject, this is the book for you. And for space nuts like me, examining those questions in the context of the most daring space mission ever attempted from Earth makes this book’s adventure one that I wish did not have an end.
I grew up a few miles from what is now NASA’s Johnson Space Center, went to school with the kids of the original Mercury Seven and Apollo astronauts, and recently retired after a 40+ year career at NASA. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and become friends with many American astronauts over that time and following along with this book’s brave, irreverent, plain-spoken astronaut Jim Tale reminded me of some of those real-life American heroes. No matter how dangerous and life-threatening their mission was, or how many unexpected complications they faced along the way, they were committed to completing their mission and always believed that the rewards were worth the risks.
Jim Tale is captain of the starship, Evolution, and he’s on a journey to a planet, 1400 light years from Earth in hopes of establishing a new home for the human race. The environment on Earth is being destroyed and there’s a real threat of thermonuclear war, so this new colony might be the only hope for survival of the human race. I found it striking that the concerns over the environment and worries about nuclear missiles and the future of our planet described in this book have never been more timely than they are today.
If you’re one of those people like me that believe that the odds are very high that there is intelligent life somewhere out there in our vast universe, this book will give you some ideas about what those beings may look and act like. There’s also plenty of danger, drama, suspense, humor, and more than a few surprises. Ad astra! (“to the stars”)

THE ONE … will actually make your stomach tighten as you whip thru the pages!

The One - 15 Sept 2017

“I loved it. I love the author and I love Keno – the main character in this series, that about sums up my review! In my humble opinion Real Laplaine is actually better than Harlan Coben and/or Nelson Demille. Try his books and I believe you will agree. Keeno is a man’s man, its miraculous that he and his partner are even alive. But he is smart, quick witted and gets the job done – HIS way. THE ONE is the latest in a series that will actually make your stomach tighten as you whip thru the pages! Each and every one of Laplaine’s books are treasures to be read. Not JUST the Keeno series. He makes the slightly possible become incredibly probable and does not let go of one iota of the readers interest. – Reviewer

Jim, and his Ai companion, CASS, face incredible hurdles along the way, but none of them will challenge Tale more than the questions that plague him, and the nightmare that haunts him – until he reaches the edge of the Universe where he meets Prima and the impossible truth is revealed.

Earth Escape – an existential high-concept thriller that packs a lot of punch

Earth Escape Web FrontEarth Escape is a sci-fi high-concept thriller, a bold journey into deep space to find a new home for mankind, a space odyssey that takes its captain and crew into new worlds, meeting sentient beings and which opens doors which answer the very questions about our existence.

Earth Escape not only meets the traditional paradigm for a classic science fiction thriller, on the order of 2001 A Space Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke, but it endeavors to take the reader into another realm, one where the reader is invited to engage the ultimate questions about existence. The mysteries which so many have attempted to solve, whether through religion or science, and yet which remain unanswered: How was the Universe created? Who created it? Is there a God? Who are we? Why are we here?

In this contemporary sci-fi thriller, one which bespeaks of the very circumstances facing our world today with growing nuclear arms, population explosion and environmental destruction – Earth Escape forces us to face the inevitable fact that our planet will not, by itself, continue to sustain the human race and that we must seek out new worlds to colonize and call home.

Gripping, surprising, and a very thoughtful story. A very memorable read. – Victoria Ichizli-Bartels, Author

Within a few pages the characters became my friends, which made the book hard to put down. To me at least, this is dystopian sci-fi at its best. Highly recommended! – J.Z. O’Brien
