Back Cover Blurb

The future of the human race is Utopia, and one man is determined to deliver it...

Investigating the miraculous rescue of an American shuttle craft crew, two American reporters are drawn into mankind's greatest adventure.

Captain Jacob Brinn, the master of the fabulous Argo is offering the human race the wonders of tomorrow, today.

The only catch...the world of tomorrow cannot come to be while the world of today continues to exist.

And so, the battle lines are drawn. On one side is the genius of Captain Brinn and his elite hand-picked crew of Argonauts; on the other is the military might of the entire world.

From the bottom of the ocean to the surface of the moon, the world will learn that there is no stopping the Captain, and no stopping the Argo.

About this Book

An American space shuttle, damaged and adrift, is within minutes of being destroyed and the crew killed. Suddenly, they are approached by a mysterious, glass-nosed submarine; seaweed, barnacles and all. The submarine is the Argo, commanded by Captain Jacob Brinn. And, he is offering to save the lives of the shuttle’s crew.

Two L.A.Times' reporters investigating the miraculous rescue are lured into the mad scheme of Captain Brinn. Boarding his fabulous research vessel, the Argo, they're introduced to the his elite hand-picked crew of Argonauts. There Brinn reveals his secrets of anti-gravity, artificial gravity, plasma weapons, and perpetual motion. The wonders that are promised the world are beyond imagination.

The only problem is these same promises will cause a socio-economic and political upheaval of apocalyptic scale. Billions may die. The nations of the world unite against the threat of Captain Brinn and his Argonauts.

And so, the battle lines are drawn. From the bottom of the ocean to the surface of the moon, the world will learn that there is no stopping the Captain, and no stopping the Argo.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

In Stephen J. Schrader's third published sci-fi novel, Paradigm Lost, and the first of the Argosy Trilogy, he has produced a mind-numbing tour de force. Not since the grandfather of science fiction, Jules Verne, unleashed his immortal Captain Nemo has there been such an incredible combination of real science and high adventure.

Captain Jacob Brinn, a "theoretical engineer" of preternatural skill, offered the world the wonders of tomorrow, today. For that, he got to watch his parents die, mistakenly killed by the terrorists sent to assassinate him. Unfortunately for the ones who sent the assassins, they made the mistake of assuming that their operatives had been successful. That gave the Captain the breathing space to alter the purpose and the mission of his fabulous Argo from one of expanding the limits of human understanding, to a mission of war.

Now, Captain Brinn is activating his well-laid trap. He will force the governments of the world to accept the new paradigm by challenging, and defeating the military might of the entire world. For this he will use nothing but his own genius and his hand-picked crew of Argonauts.

Stephen J. Schrader, a disabled combat vet and former career US Army Counterintelligence agent, uses his skills and experience, and ten years of research to craft such a novel as is only seen once a century; if that. He is currently working on the two sequels to the Argosy Trilogy. Stay tuned!
