"In the far flung future, the human experience is a much different one indeed. "Dancing with Eternity" is a science fiction novel set in the fortieth century and following the misadventures and failures of Mohandas in an otherwise more perfect universe. Humorous and thoughtful, "Dancing with Eternity "may prove a fun read for science fiction fans with a strong interest in deep space travel and other elements of the far flung future." --Midwest Book Review/Small Press Bookwatch
"In "Dancing With Eternity "John has constructed the idyllic science fiction novel with all the elements that real fans crave: adventure, mystery, space travel, alien worlds, hard science projections, and a wonderful cast of characters from a future society. But, more important, the book dances with timeless philosophical questions which may require hard-thinking, real-life answers much sooner than we realize."--Frank Simcoe, author, "Ridiculous Destiny"
"Two thousand years from now, people don't die; they just reboot, choosing what to remember, what to forget. The results are not always what they--or we--expect. In "Dancing with Eternity", John Lowrie has imagined a richly detailed world of space travel among colonized planets by characters whose minds and bodies alike are malleable, the specs stored on the 'net' and retrievable when necessary. The storytelling in this novel is lush and highly imaginative, and backed by the author's encyclopedic knowledge of our world and his deep understanding of what makes us human." --Jerry Stubblefield, author of "Homunculus" (Black Heron Press)
""Dancing With Eternity" by John Patrick Lowrie is not only a terrific E-ticket ride of speculative fiction, it is also a very thought-provoking novel of ideas. I got swept away by the scope of the story, and spent many hours contemplating the moral, ethical and social challenges of 'rebooting.' Anyone who enjoys reading either Kim Stanley Robinson or Neal Stephenson will get a big kick out of this book!" --Hugh Hastings, Actor
"Dancing with Eternity" is a fascinating sci-fi thriller that depicts the world as it might be in the future .... It is a fairly quick read because the flow of the storyline keeps you fascinated and intrigued. This is one book that sci-fi enthusiasts should put on their "must-read" list."- Tracey Rock for "Reader Views"
"As I was enjoying this book, stepping through a delightful minefield of lifeless sacred cows, I found the advanced computer concepts presented within assembling themselves in actual experiments in the real world without!" --Chuck Pliske, former NASA Computer Engineer. "At a time in which we are increasingly uncertain about our future, Lowrie creates a plausible scenario in which there is no death as we now experience it, and explores how such a world would play out. In the process he challenges our traditional beliefs about love, sex and spirituality." --Janet Pliske, D.D.
"An utterly believable depiction of other worlds and races, imagination drips from every page. John Patrick Lowrie has more talent than any human being has a right to possess. A triumph of science fiction. I only wish I'd written it!" M J Elliott, Editor of "The Whisperer in Darkness", "The Horror in the Museum", "The Right Hand of Doom", "The Haunter of the Ring"
"As an ex-NASA tether specialist and consultant on the Shuttle tether missions, I found this a refreshingly accurate narrative of what it might be like to experience such life and related activities that (are) outside our normal realms." --Dave Lang
."..the first mind-blowing 2011 novel...shows why science fiction is still the most interesting genre today."
--Liviu Suciu, Fantasy Book Critic
"In the far flung future, the human experience is a much different one indeed. "Dancing with Eternity" is a science fiction novel set in the fortieth century and following the misadventures and failures of Mohandas in an otherwise more perfect universe. Humorous and thoughtful, "Dancing with Eternity "may prove a fun read for science fiction fans with a strong interest in deep space travel and other elements of the far flung future." --Midwest Book Review/Small Press Bookwatch "Every once in a while, a new novel comes along that is both epic in scope and, at the same time, focused on a very personal, human drama. John Patrick Lowrie's characters do indeed dance with eternity in a universe where humankind thinks it has mastered immortality. They believe technology has solved all problems . . .This dense story is far richer than a capsule summary can suggest. In the best tradition of the best science fiction, the galactic setting is painted with vivid, believable detail."-- DReseña del editor:
What would happen if Odysseus met Captain Ahab in the Fortieth Century? Only Captain Ahab is a beautiful woman named Steel who owns her own starship and Odysseus is an unemployed actor named Mohandas who's stuck on the backside of a backwater moon because he won't pay his taxes. Oh, and everybody-well, almost everybody-lives forever, did I mention that? And there's a telepathic Internet that allows the entire population of the galaxy to communicate at will and even experience the world from another person's perspective. Dancing with Eternity is a sprawling galactic odyssey that takes Steel, Mo and the crew of the starship Lightdancer on an incredible voyage of adventure, self-discovery, and revelation. ... And they get to go to a lot of really cool planets, too.
