About the author:
Co-authors Judi Suni Hall, PhD. and Donald S. Hall, PhD. have shared their lives and careers since marrying as undergrads. They both did PhD.'s in theoretical physics, then moved into industry and worked at AECL, Canada's nuclear research lab. Judi spent her career first designing reactor safety systems, then as an industrial risk analyst . As Technical Director of AECL's risk analysis consultancy Judi worked with a number of industries, including the Canadian Space Agency. Her fascination with space began then. Don started his career in instrumentation and control then shifted to artificial intelligence His research on expert systems led to collaboration with some of Canada's top AI researchers.
Their lives were changed by a severely disabling virus and 10 years were a write off. Don now runs Apps & More Software Design developing scheduling software for the Mac and mental health software for the iPhone and iPad. He has the caregiver role as Judi is still severely disabled.
They began writing science fiction for their own pleasure, both for the fun of creating the story line, and to try to extend current technology to the far future. It was natural for them to use their background in physics and in industry when creating the Gingezel series. It took twelve years to finish the first four epic novel series, so of course they could not anticipate the reactor accident in Japan that suddenly made this series so timely.
In addition to writing science fiction, Judi and Don are internationally published haiga poets, artists, and award winning surface designers.
Gingezel 1: The Limit
Judi Suni Hall PhD.
Donald S. Hall PhD.
Twelve years in creation, the epic Gingezel series is set at the time when human habitation has expanded beyond the galactic core. Uneasy contact has been reestablished with the Farr Sector populated by immigrants from Terra in the first days of hyperspatial travel.
Dr. Mitra Kael, power systems engineer for Dellmaice Power Systems, has spent three years on the Farrese mining planet Drezvir installing the prototype of her hybrid reactor. It should provide all of the power the colonists need to survive on that inhospitable planet. She's proud of her hybrid. It has pushed the limits of technology. She doesn't care what reservations Ari Dellmaice, her boss, has about it.
After three years of being an Outsider, she just wants to get off Drezvir and never see that planet again. Mitra is headed for Gingezel, the ultimate pleasure planet. It is the first planet ever bought from the Galactic Exploration Agency and the entire galaxy is wondering who the mysterious consortium who owns it is.
Once on Gingezel Mitra meets Dr. Dreen Pendi and his best friend Joran Lantonnel. Although she doesn't realize it, Dreen is CEO of the galaxy wide Nemizcan Computing. He has a different problem from Mitra. It's been way too long since he's pushed any technical limits. As for Joran, he is strictly on holiday there to hide his secrets. They are nothing though compared to the secret Dreen is hiding.
An idyllic vacation changes to a nightmare when pushing the limits turns into pushing your luck and secrets start threatening to slip out.
Science fiction by scientists.
