Disaster movie 2012 meets Moon in this thrilling story full of scientific advancements.
The Destroyer of Earth did not set out to be one. A perfect storm of catastrophes, a touch of hubris, and a lot of human ingenuity, and you get yourself deeper than ever. The button has been pressed, the world is in ruins. Will humanity figure out how to survive?
What is Antigravel? What did you think was the road-stop for man to explore the empty reaches of space? Faster than light travel? Interstellar navigation? Time dilation?
Puh. We beat all that by sheer force of will. No. It was micrometeoroids. Rocks. F--king space rocks.
Saoulidis is one of those writers that should have been around during the era of the twilight zone. He'd have fit right in that era. This is one of those types of stories I could see Sterling smoking a cigarette and saying, "Imagine a time when man's arrogance outstripped his cautiousness . . ."
I love short cautionary tales like this, in which a man's reach exceeds his grasp. The best part is the scientist's punishment for all the death and destruction he has caused. That is pure Twilight Zone. The story itself is smart, and well paced and will leave you wondering about mankind's ability to adapt to new situations.
Greg Young's narration is very well done and he makes it seem like it is his story that he is telling, and not simply reading from a script. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
