Adventures in the Cosmos
The planets and their effect on the human race are at the heart of this stellar collection of provocative science fiction short stories, Adventures in the Cosmos by Darryl L. Gopaul. A second menacing moon appears in one story, which awakens powerful new forces on Earth. In another story, humanoids venture onto Earth and start to behave very differently than they usually do, right up until the moment they are called back to their home planet. In other stories, humans face a new biological phenomenon or gain new abilities, like telepathy. Hinting that strange, powerful forces are quietly guiding humans on Earth, Gopaul probes the possibilities that exist in the deepest pockets of outer space and right here on our home planet. Inspiring, stunning, and sometimes shocking, Adventures in the Cosmos shows that while the universe is our new frontier, it will take not just bravado but understanding to conquer or control it. A thinking person's collection of sci fi, Adventures in the Cosmos is both beautifully written and bolstered by the expertise of Gopaul, who is a microbiologist. In story after story, he prods you to see the earth, the planets, and yourself in new and original ways.
