BEYOND HERCULES is the story of a charismatic techno-geek who discovers anti-gravity not knowing the galaxy is patrolled by a derelict weapon that annihilates anyone using anti-gravity technology.
Imagine Duke Wainwright’s surprise when a simple fiber optics experiment blows a mile-deep hole in his garage floor. He’s discovered anti-gravity, but doesn’t know it. However, a derelict weapon, programmed to annihilate anyone with anti-gravity technology, does know it. It begins a countdown before Duke even knows what he’s discovered. Duke, his teenage sweetheart, an out-of-work astronomer, and a dead cosmonaut scramble to mount a defense as the robotic weapon begins its attack.
Beyond Hercules is a First Contact story of discovery, mystery, adventure, and romance for readers of all ages.
