JOHN SCALZI will introduce The Collapsing Empire, the first novel of his new space-opera sequence set in an all-new universe on Monday, April 3 at 7 pm at books&co at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek, Ohio.
In this story we find that its universe is ruled by physics, and faster than light travel is not possible—until the discovery of The Flow. That is an extra-dimensional field that can be accessed at certain points in space-time that transport humans to other worlds around other stars.
The Flow is eternal—but it is not static. It changes, cutting off worlds from the rest of humanity. When it’s discovered that The Flow is moving, possibly cutting off all human worlds from faster than light travel forever, three individuals – a scientist, a starship captain, and the Empress of the Interdependency---are in a race against time to discover what, if anything can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.
