Humankind is spread across three thousand light years in a myriad of worlds and habitats known as the Human Entelechy. Linked by a network of wormholes with Earth at its center, it is the world Captain RJ Stone awakens to after a twelve-thousand-year cryogenic suspension.

Stone soon finds himself commanding the maiden voyage of the first spacecraft to break the light speed barrier: the FTL Further. In search of extraterrestrial intelligence, the landing party explores a distant pulsar only to be taken prisoner by the bloodthirsty Iron Mass, a religious sect exiled from the Entelechy millennia before. Now Stone and his crew must escape while they try to solve the riddle of the planet’s network of stone towers that may be proof of the intelligence they’ve come to find.

The first in critically acclaimed author Chris Roberson’s scintillating new series, Further: Beyond the Threshold is a fascinating ride to the farthest reaches of the imagination.

    " This was really, really old-fashioned SF, which at first I found sort of charming, but ultimately just too shallow and disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory | 11/15/2013

    " If this is the first book I am anxious for book two. "

    " well done! one of the most entertaining books this year. I hope the Author has more of this in him. I read this at the speed of light, could not put it down. one of the more original sci-Fi stories in some time. "

    " Great premise. Imaginative and a fun read. "

    " Fun sci fi where the ideas are more important than action-packed violence or big explosions -- though there is certainly some cool action, don't get me wrong. FURTHER: BEYOND THE THRESHOLD is a very interesting book filled with rich characters, and I hope to read further adventures of the FURTHER. "

    " Not good enough to make me pursue another. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Swanson | 1/17/2013

    " Great concept! To wake up 12,000 years in the future, the author develops this future with great detail. I look forward to where the author takes the story line in future books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Falbs | 8/25/2012

    " It starts with dog-men and goes to some pretty silly teenage type shit, but there are some grand ideas about the future of the species and some well-thought out ideas about AI hidden in here. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dennis | 7/9/2012

    " Read about half of it before I ditched it. Just couldn't get past the chimp doctor. I kept thinking of an old TV show "Lancelot Link" every time I tried to imagine what a talking chimp would look like. If you've never seen the show, look it up, you'll see what I mean. "
