Three space craft, 240 colonists, 25 trillion miles and a discovery that will change everything.
This is the first novel in the Astronomicon science fiction series, charting the first human steps into interstellar space. A colonisation mission to Proxima Centauri is in danger of failing when the colonists discover that the extreme distance and harsh conditions are not all that stand between them and survival. What should have been a momentous landing becomes a near catastrophic crash.
A chance discover on their new home planet becomes the strongest evidence yet that mankind is not alone in the cosmos. The Astronomicon could become a source of information vital for mankind's ongoing survival, but only if the authorities can be made to believe its importance.
We also find out about some of the political machinations that are unfolding back on Earth, which threaten to end space exploration permanently. With established colonies on the inner planets and a thriving mining community on the Jovian moons, will everyone want to come home?
