What would it be like to discover two connected galaxies that The Big Bang theory says are impossible? Not many people have even imagined facing this question, but in "The Falling Sky" Pippa Goldschmidt takes readers into the mind of an astronomer whose research presents these findings. This conundrum creates a human drama as fraught with turmoil and heartache as any found in the best novels of any genre.
Cars, trucks, and planes grind to a halt as an oil-eating bacteria (similar to the one used to clean up the Exxon Valdez disaster) consumes fuel, while free hydrogen gas causes explosions and fires around the city of L.A. Amy Rogers, M.D. Ph.D. grounds her science-based thriller in fact until the last possible second when she expertly blends "what if" with "what is" making "Petroplague" a page-turning thriller.
An intimate glimpse into the lives of scientific researchers, Jennifer Rohn's beautiful and touching story "The Honest Look" is an eye opening experience. Love triangles, unexpected findings, and ostracism all add up to potentially change the way readers understand the scientific method and what scientists must do in their pursuit of ground breaking research.
