Odyssey to the Center of Hyperspace: Phase One

by Melanie Haga John Haga

Odyssey to the Center of Hyperspace was conceived as a bold, escalating, action packed, adventure story. It is filled with mystery, sensuality, intrigue and mesmerizing mysterious places that will take the intrepid reader far beyond the norm of perceived realities. The story begins when two university professors, one a world-renowned, quirky female archeologist and the other a brilliant, comic book reading, male astrophysicist-also employed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab on campus-combine talents to search for a mythological artifact. Unknown to the professors, two thousand years ago a fledgling King from a lost civilization put together a team of scientist, including his most knowledgeable astronomer, to hunt for the same phenomenal object. The chapters precisely alternate between the modern day and the ancient times as both teams, two thousand years apart, frantically look for clues that might lead them to their goal. What happens as the two groups progress, is only the beginning of a perilous journey that has startling unforseen consequences for the past and present.
