Death By Paradox   by R.M. Robinson

Earth seeds the universe with new life. Firefall's Science Fiction by Scientists-tm series flowers with cosmic wonder in this highly original novel. Here the dramatic perspective on human evolution creates an epic universe unforeseen and unrealized till now in a family epic and new genesis romance.

"Death by Paradox’s main conceit of realistic science fiction makes for fascinating and enlightening world building. Exotic alien life and the evolution of human interstellar society and technology will immediately hook anyone who is interested in peeking over the edges of scientific understanding..."

"Through careful attention to keeping track of individual journeys through time, Robinson crafts a wonderful tapestry of thousand –year travel jaunts between the stars, and planned rendezvous between people millennia in the future. Everyone carries their own personal rendezvous log pendant that they share with others to set up meetings in the far future. Brilliant!...I only know of a hand full of stories that have attempted to work romance into a story line spanning 100,000 years or more, such as H.G Wells ‘The Time Machine’ or Isaac Asimov’s ‘The End of Eternity’, but each did it by drastically bending the Laws of Nature almost beyond recognition. You might as well wave a magic wand! Only in the case of Robinson’s deftly engineered universe do we see a plausible way of allowing interstellar travel  using reasonable extensions of current technology. He reserves the ‘magic’ for the graceful and entirely believable way in which he handles human behavior."  Dr. Sten Odenwald (National Institute of Aerospace/NASA)

"Yet another cosmic thrill ride about a family of planetary explorers that left Earth 138,000 years earlier, frozen in fast-moving capsules, moving through our galaxy and encountering other civilizations with a mixture of aliens and other humans. Who are friendly and who are hostile? Robinson exploits his space physics background nicely with a great plot, challenges Einstein, and introduces plausible future technology. My best science fiction so far. Hollywood next?"  Dr. Pål Brekke, solar physicist and astrophysicist, Senior Advisor at the Norwegian Space Centre, author of “Our Explosive Sun”.
