About the Author
A secret engine design concept unexpectedly lands in private pilot Jay Foster’s lap, leading him on a journey to discover what could be the most important invention of the millennium, as well a grand adventure beyond his wildest dreams. But first, the young man must look within to silence any self-doubt that’s there and draw out the natural power just waiting to be tapped. At the same time, he calls on close friends Kyle, Brian, Trent and Jean to help him discover, and then uncover, the practical uses of this world-changing invention. Just when Jay begins to secretly test flight this remarkable find, interested government agencies begin to monitor and track him. Using his intimate knowledge of the Puget Sound land and seascape, Jay is able to elude his pursuers to fully test his creation. Succeeding with the help of some surprising government allies, Jay finishes with a demonstration that is truly out of this world, ensuring a happy - and very wealthy – future for himself and his friends.
What am I missing? Jay wondered. He pulled himself out of the makeshift capsule seat, twisted while pushing off, then landed by the motor. He put his right hand near the machine, feeling for heat or any other sign that it was working. What if it is? What if the voltage is fine? Every motor has worked flawlessly so far. Why would this replacement be any different? Jay’s hopes sank. The readings were right where they should have been, and yet the ship would not accelerate. His thoughts shifted away from finding a solution to this dismal reality. Why did I push it so far? I alone put myself in this position to die, marooned in space. I had the invention of the century — a motor that defies gravity — mounted in a boiler outfitted for a trip into space. I had it all on solid ground, with patents in my name. Why did I push it, just to keep the project away from a government takeover? Jay stared at the moon, took in a deep breath and regained his composure. Then he spoke out loud, though no one else could hear him. “I have to radio NASA and tell them what happened.” They will only have questions. They can’t help me. I’m the only one who knows what’s really going on in this motor. Or, at least I thought I knew.” He sighed. I’m as good as dead. Why do I only think of praying when I get in trouble? What am I missing?
“Gravity and the Lack of It” is the second book in Bill Feist’s trilogy “The Other Nine Tenths.” Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Bill has always loved space technology and theories of what future space travel might look like. He now lives in Palm Springs, California, where, when he’s not writing, he owns and operates three Cold Stone Creamery stores.
Moves fast, love the invention and the way author showed uses.
