An excerpt from the novel Past Light is ready to read.
No matter how deep into space you may flee, your troubles will find you.
Putting his career and his marriage at risk, the space pilot hatches a plan that could land him in jail for thirty years. After finding a habitable world, he is halfway to success, but he sees something on the planet surface that ruins everything—a human face. The improbable vision disappears quickly. Confused and disoriented, he loses his way back to his ship.
In the following months, the surveyor finds himself in a struggle for survival against an unforgiving environment, and as hard as he looks, he never sees any sign of other humans. His extreme isolation causes unwanted memories of his troubled youth to come alive, blurring the past with the present. Doubting his sanity, he must solve the mystery of his missing ship.
