"Heck," said Dooly, poking Heck Thomas in the shoulder. "Why do Moon rocks taste better than Earth rocks?"

Heck looked up from the pilot's console with an irritated expression and a raised brow.

"Because they're a little meteor!" Dooly laughed uproariously. Heck shook his head and returned his attention to the console, smiling at the thought of paying Dooly back.

"Tom Bielawski is a bright light in today's dark sea of new writers. His writing gives me hope for the next generation of dreamers. I highly recommend both him and his works." -NYT Bestselling author, Tracy Hickman.

Rigel's Escape is the second installment in The Orion Trilogy, and it not about Earth rocks or tasty meteors. This book picks right up after the conclusion of The Orion Deception, catapulting Heck Thomas into a twisted web of intrigue, corruption, and lies.

The Centaurus Device is the devilish gift that just keeps giving, and everyone wants a piece of it. Heck's ex-partner makes a dramatic return from the dead and wants Heck to step outside. Heck, ready to settle old scores, is only too glad to oblige. 

But Heck Thomas could never have imagined what came next.

Old friends return from the dead, new friends disappear, and Heck Thomas is ready to send the whole damned drift across space and time in order to stop the madness.

Ancient alien travelers. Hopeless love. Astonishing encounter. Mozelle Moi’s life turns into a flight of fear and astounding discovery, as she becomes enmeshed in a secret government project to make first contact with visitors from the stars. Caught in a telepathic link with the Talenki voyagers, Mozy's personal odyssey will soon be entwined with the fate of all of Humanity.

Combining visionary scientific speculation with passionate human characters, The Infinity Link is an epic work of transcendent science fiction and an exploration into the very nature of humanity. From the Nebula-nominated author of Eternity’s End.


“A long, ambitious work, painted on a canvas as big as the solar system. The concept itself is even larger—the eventual linkup of various intelligent life forms of our galaxy, including humans, whales and several alien races.  Carver carefully sets up his story and develops it in a meticulous fashion...it works very well.” —Publishers Weekly

“A complex, rich, and satisfying novel.” —Fantasy Review

“A compelling vision of our world on the day after tomorrow.” —Joan D. Vinge, author of The Snow Queen

“A satisfying and rewarding visionary experience.”  —Analog

“A rich novel of immense scope, with the most detailed and brilliant descriptive passages of empathic and telepathic communication.  Highly recommended.”  —SF and Fantasy Reviews

  “A book I just couldn’t put down.  Murder, mystery, suspense, romance and love—The Infinity Link has it all.” —Taxi Globe
