Book Review: THE SAFETY FACTOR eye-opening Sci-Fi fun
THE SAFETY FACTOR The Use of Power, on AMAZON
In a story that begins in the 18th Century and ends up in 2080, THE SAFETY FACTOR has it all.
Abused by her drunkard father, young Maria stows away on a cargo ship headed anywhere but there. Hiding below decks, she considers her actions and the life she left behind; hoping she never gets sent back. Lady Farrell and her handmaiden Ellen board just before the ship leaves. Lady Farrell is traveling to Venice to marry and along the way, her handmaiden and her long-time friend, the ship’s captain fall in love and plan to marry. Then everything goes sour.
Like the hero that he is, the Captain lowers the two women and the girl over the far side in a long boat so they may escape while he and his men battle the pirates. The women float out to sea for 6 weeks until they are picked up by a strange-looking mirage that couldn’t possibly be real. Here is where your science-fiction tale really begins!
Jerry Travis and Josephine Mayes have given us tender characters with depth and amazing intelligence that the reader will root for throughout. This book touches human topics such as sexual abuse, social class structure and the existence of God, as well as eye-opening scientific revelations regarding the theories of past philosophers and the possibility of Time Travel. THE SAFETY FACTOR is truly an epic science fiction adventure that offers the most original theories of Time Travel ever seen in print. Read it and see for yourself.
