Endless Earth – Vorzsak Milan – Editura Letras, 2022
What is the purpose of evolution? Why is velocity in the Universe limited to the speed of light?
She is an elf from before the evolution of mankind, plunged into the year 2456. She claims to be the one who aided Father Earth in the design of all species of life on Earth. But her Parent has now sent her to the time of the ending of the world, which she swears to prevent.
In her original life before the Ice Age, she struggles with Black, the leader of a tribe of primitive Homo sapiens. She despises him for his rough nature, but she eventually understands that it is her duty to get him started on the bumpy road to evolution.
In her present, the intelligent races of the galaxy are pooling knowledge through the Archives, a galactic network of alien transmissions, to break the lightspeed barrier and finally open up the galaxy.
But what is needed to make the Earth endless?
This novel is a unique, fantastic theory on the history of evolution, based on hard, historic facts blended with fun fantasy. It also probes the future possibilities of mankind, as well as the laws of physics that govern the Universe, which humankind needs to see as a challenge in order to conquer the stars.
It is a standalone story, but also the first part of a trilogy whose next volumes will also be published in the near future. The second volume, Endless Mars details the struggles of a long-ago Martian race to escape their dying planet, while the third instalment, entitled Endless Space, rounds up the story of all the intelligent races of the galaxy.
