WAR For The SPHERES
a science fiction novel
“Gripping and fast-paced, Walt Tuttle’s near-future thriller War for the Spheres is top-notch storytelling with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the very end. Compelling, character-driven stories of this caliber are unique in the science fiction genre, and are, almost literally, as rare and complex as rocket science.” - Vincent Di Fate
American Astronaut, Hayden Bakley, is an experienced space explorer. As many times as he had been into space, even he did not know a quiet, yet, potentially life-altering war for the spheres is taking place all over the world.
Daily our lives reach the spheres without our feet ever leaving Earth. Our dependence on satellites has alarmingly increased.
What if every orbiter encircling the globe, including space stations, was suddenly taken over? Complete command and control by one country—one group—one individual?
The Outer Space Treaty provides a framework for preventing such seizures. But what if those principles were now thought of as being outdated? That the spheres around the Earth were no different from the land, there to be conquered and controlled.
Hayden is drafted into the war for the spheres through no doing of his own, other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now, it is up to him and an under-the-radar NASA group to stop such a monopoly of control from being achieved.
For whoever controls the spheres, controls Earth below and space beyond.
