I published a second edition of The Orphans. Almost the same, but did some editing that I should have done the first time around to clear up spelling errors. The Orphans is a science fiction novel in which Jim, a washed up private detective who suffers from bizarre neurological symptoms, is hired by an anonymous client to locate seven orphans, the only survivors of a mass suicide thirty years ago. The novel is set on Mars, a planet of war refugees, organized crime, drug addicts, and The Church of Great Bliss – a “neurotheistic” religion which practices the post-mortem fusing and disembodied resurrection of the brains of deceased members, resulting in an afterlife of unified consciousness. As Jim stumbles upon more facts about the case, he uncovers a conspiracy implicating some of the most powerful individuals on Mars. Kindle (free for KindleUnlimited) Print version

En route, the ship he is on gets momentarily caught in the powerful gravity of a black hole and is flung trillions and trillions of years into the future. The passengers find themselves in a time of maximum entropy, where all life is extinct, all the stars have burned out, and there is nothing left in the universe except a black hole and a complete vacuum extending in all directions.As the original crew
