About the Book

Jon Ryan's suspended animation flight into the 100-year future almost ends in disaster when his craft crash-lands on a deadly forbidding, radioactive planet.

Just managing to activate one of his cargos sending booths containing a mechanical robotic ABEX figure, he is able to receive help from Earth before the radiation can finish him off. In turn, Jon uses that magic booth to teleport himself to the safety of that future Earth.

To him, the wonders of this new world are mind boggling, as he is assimilated into it, praised and revered by the people of a power-starved world, for succeeding in reaching a radioactive ore supply that promises to power the world's fusion processes for eons to come.

An inadvertent booth body switch gives Jon a whole new set of problems to contend with. If that weren't enough, a former lover heats up the pages of the story, he invents a miracle cloth that responds to ones body temperature, new booth technology creates instant body transport, a chase for his rightful body goes beyond the domes where the reader meets the Clan, a fast, revolutionary cloning process is introduced and the most startling turn-of events of all, one's essence, one's very being, is freed from it's body to soar to the stars!

 


About the Author

Stan L. Zieve, a television newsfilm cameraman from Minneapolis, won national awards for story telling with his camera.

As his camera recorded births and deaths, disasters and happiness, presidents and paupers, sunspots and eclipses and love and hate, his brain was busy too, remembering it all.

Stan's imagination soared when using a computer keyboard, as he continued telling stories with “The Sending Booth”, a fascinating, open-ended, science fiction saga set 100 years into the future.

In the book, Stan's imagination created temperature controlled clothing, domed cities, robotic mannequins with human minds, wheeless vehicles swooping over growing pathways and the mother-of-all body-reclaiming searches to end all searches.

Now retired after 37 years with NBC News, Stan and his wife Felice, along with most of the offspring, reside in Southern California, where he no longer has to shovel any snow.
