First Contact (coming soon)
The people of the Gutenberg Discontinuity have evolved separately from humankind under conditions that would crush and vaporize life as we know it. Paper magnate Fred Tighe is intrigued when he is introduced to a mysterious message, purportedly sent from far away from the Earth’s Core.
Teaming with an ambitious collection of speculators, scientists, and government, the Tighes succeed at an incredible construction project, drilling a well far away from the “surface” of the Earth, into a place completely unlike their home.
After building a pair of research centers, the Tighes and their allies endeavor to find the intelligent life that they are certain composed the strange message almost a decade earlier. But, while they are motivated by altruism and curiosity, there are forces within their coalition that are more deeply interested in the bottom line.
