To the Stars is the first book in a science fiction trilogy about an intrepid group of space explorers. The year is 2107. An over-crowded Earth is choked with poverty, crime, pollution, and competition. Governments only exist as vehicles of change for the giant corporations that scramble for their market shares. The biggest game in town is space exploration, made possible by the discovery of a wormhole on the outskirts of the asteroid belt. Every common young man and woman dream of joining a corporation space survey team and making discoveries on other worlds that will pull them out of poverty.
"Harry clung to a branch and peered through his faceplate. The helmet enabled him to see in the dark, although he wasn't sure what it was he saw. A beast that was almost human, almost in the mutant sense. It had two legs and two arms and a head, but that was where the resemblance stopped. Its skin was yellow-scaled and had suppurating sores. It was additionally, quite out of its mind. Stopping beneath the tree, it beat on the trunk and gazed upward. Its moans pierced the air and it gnawed on the bark at the base. Harry had little doubt it knew they were there."
