The Universe Within
Mr Clifford Henry Woods
He wanted to find out what was going on in the universe. Why was a part of it disappearing? And, why was the curvaceous babe with loads of money getting in his way? His assistant was in love with him and helpful - but could he really count on her?
Sample of the book:
"His glasses were steamed up, his vision blurred, he was tired and irritable and on top of all that he could not get away from the lab. That cursed deadline imposed on him by the Administration was not helping either - they wanted results yesterday!
Manheim, Theodore R - did not like his name so he had changed it to "Theo". He did this deliberately, despite the fact that his parents and later his tutors had repeatedly told him that a name like "Theo" was not a proper name for such a gifted young man. In response and in further revolt, whenever he got the chance, he would spread his name in its shortened form across some of his most formal and studious papers.
Apart from a dislike of his name, Theo was one of those gifted individuals who disowned any and all responsibilities if he could avoid them; he considered this his right. Way deep down, when it came to the crunch - he was quite a responsible person.
His talent and genius for the Sciences had earned him more diplomas certificates and awards than he knew what to do with - all of which interested him little or not at all. He tended to keep a token few of them on the mantle in his living room to please his folks and retired them to the closet when new ones came along to replace them.
Theo's ability to duplicate and understand complicated mathematical formulas, scientific equations and jargon, had always been with him. The more he used his ability the better and better he got at it.
In school his talent or skill (if you want to call it that) made him some enemies and won him few friends. The hot athletic-type boys did not appreciate the fact that he could spend all his time at parties with the girls while they studied very carefully. They resented further the fact that it would simply take him a few hours to scan some books, finish first in exams - and then walk away with honors!
There were some things he liked about school though. Like the time he was invited by the Dean, in his last year of college, to spend the summer with the Dean's family at their retreat in the mountains. The Dean's daughter, Polly-Ann, sure liked him...."
