Description

"MIRRORSCOPE" takes a wry and darkly humorous look at the fractious and divisive world of modern astronomy when an unexpected discovery threatens to undermine the established cosmological belief.

The story opens in the 1950's and follows the research into the nature of newly discovered 'radztars' by astrophysicist Dr. Lee Drexler, newly appointed staff member of a prestigious observatory in the USA. When Drexler's observations suggests the conventional belief is wrong, his skeptical colleagues turn against him and an elaborate conspiracy is hatched to censure his research and thwart the publication of his controversial claims--a conspiracy that closely mirrors the trial of Galileo 300 hundred years earlier.

The novel comes to a surprising, counter-intuitive, mystical climax when Drexler, chances upon the acquaintance of Jack Astra--an artist with some radical cosmic insights of his own--and a Platonic dialogue develops between the two men on a world view that transforms our vision of the cosmos. From Copernicus to Hubble. From planet Earth to the farthest reaches of space and time, "MIRRORSCOPE" takes us on a thought provoking voyage to the heart of creation. The starry heavens will never look the same again.
