A breakthrough in human biophysics is on the verge of making history and changing the medical landscape of our world. Welcome to ELF, the Extended Life Foundation.
Dr. Bryan Morgan had enjoyed a successful career with the Royal Army Medical Corps, and he has won awards as a clinical psychologist for his work treating soldiers with post-traumatic stress. Now he is unemployed and struggling with his own mental wellbeing amid marital and financial strain.
When he is headhunted by ELF, a top-secret institute whose efforts to advance medical technology and healthcare delivery push ethical boundaries, everything falls into place. It’s a dream job, but life is never that straightforward, and even the simplest discoveries can have deadly consequences.
Ahead lies a frightening and dangerous mission into the unknown, putting Bryan's life, and his sanity, at risk. Trapped in a loop of ever-growing chaos, he'll go to any lengths to protect his family and expose the truth before it's too late.
For those who could read between the lines, the new technology was terrifying. But Teletron and the government insisted it was safe.
Set in a near future where oil no longer exists, civil aviation has been replaced by commercial teleportation, improved battery technology underpins everything, algorithms optimise homes and electric cars, and people are forced to wear chips in their hands to protect their identification and bank accounts, Clotho revolves around a seventeen-year-old girl, Nova. Her father is killed in a deadly explosion at London City Teleport with five thousand others, but she survives. The exact circumstances behind the blast remain a mystery, though it has the radical Anti-Tech Movement written all over it.
Suffering from concussion and temporary memory loss, Nova finds herself entangled in a dangerous pursuit, catapulting her into a confused and lonely downward spiral. When she crosses paths with Arthur, a middle-aged man also haunted by family loss, and a homeless boy, Owen, she forms an unlikely bond, and their lives are irrevocably changed. But can she trust them?
Nova's memory is slowly returning with clues to a secret that will change the world, making her a girl who knows too much.
Great things never come from comfort zones. In an era of exploration like never before, they must rise to the challenge. And dare to fall.
Fable Sky, the world’s largest zero-pressure helium balloon, embarks on its inaugural flight into the stratosphere.
The space tourism project has taken many years, the assembly of a highly trained crew and a small fortune to get off the ground. If everything goes well, it will be a flight of discovery and transformation, a triumph of the human imagination. Furthermore, the commercial possibilities will ensure a prosperous future, targeting people yearning for a taste of space.
When the mission is turned upside down at 138,000 feet, things quickly spin out of control, leaving the crew stranded and vulnerable. It will need the project leader and captain, Will, to draw on all his experience and pull them together for an event that could change the course of human history – and possibly end it.
