JOURNEY TO TITAN

Mission One – the book that started it all.

Five months to Titan. Four brave crew members. One incredible mystery.

Jeff Dolan always wanted to be an astronaut. After helping a private space company build a ship that can travel to Saturn’s largest moon in five months, he gets his chance.

Shortly after launch, a devastating malfunction forces Jeff and the crew to make a choice: continue to Titan, or go back home. As the truth about their mission unravels, one thing is clear: someone on Earth knew about the system flaw and covered it up.

Yet surviving the journey isn’t the crew’s only concern. Even if they make it to Titan, they will face another problem:

Something is already there.

SETTLE ANOTHER WORLD

Leaving Earth is the easy part. Surviving the trip to a new home 10,000 light years away is a journey like no other.

Merritt Alder is done with Earth. The planet is polluted and overpopulated, and its people are hungry.

Earth’s first colony, Galena, is a pioneer world 10,000 light years away. It has clean air, unpolluted water, and continents of arable land. Anyone can start a new life…if they can get there.

For Merritt, the journey is only the beginning. Obstacles arise every step of the way, forcing compromise and sacrifice. And not everyone on his ship is pure of heart.

The bonds he forges on the journey will be the key to surviving on another world — a world anyone has yet to fully explore.

A world with secrets of its own.

Third Colony Book Cover by Samuel Best

LATEST RELEASE

Third Colony – Book Two of the Galena Chronicles

Eight years after their ship crash-landed, the colonists from Earth have learned to survive on another world.

Despite the relative harmony of the colony, Galena remains a treacherous place. The oceans are ruled by massive aquatic beasts that restrict the survivors to their farms and the lands beyond – where other dangers lurk. A chance recovery of multipurpose space suits in a salvage crate and an unnatural tunnel leading away from the colony unlock a pathway to exploring the forbidden oceans, where an amazing discovery awaits.

But the only revelations do not come from below. A glint of metal in the sky heralds a new arrival. A ship has come at last… but why?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in Cape Canaveral, Florida, Samuel grew up a mile from the gates of Kennedy Space Center. His grandmother built space shuttles, his father designed scientific equipment that flew on them, and Samuel watched the launches from his rattling front porch, dreaming of the stars.

His best-selling novel Mission One, a near-future first contact odyssey, is the book that launched his career as a science fiction writer.

He recently spent three years traveling the world with his wife. They welcomed their son near the end of that journey and are now spending their days exploring the United States while Samuel works on his next book.
