New book “Sailing Daedalus” from Page Publishing author Kenneth J. Gillispie is an explosive new work that asks two very complicated questions that will tax human ingenuity to the limits: what will we do when an asteroid large enough to destroy our planet threatens our very existence? Furthermore, could such asteroids actually be not only diverted, but mined for precious metals?

I hope my readers enjoy this book and find themselves carried away to the stars.

Kenneth J. Gillispie, a retired computer technician, has completed his first book “Sailing Daedalus”: a realistic exploration of a possible future scenario involving the threat of a catastrophic asteroid impact event and the steps necessary to avert it.

Describing his inspiration for writing this thrilling piece of fiction Gillispie says: “After working for many years with technology I have settled into retirement and now pursue my dual passions of physics and astrophysics. These interests, along with the support of my wife and brother, have led me to write my first science fiction novel. I hope my readers enjoy this book and find themselves carried away to the stars.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kenneth J. Gillispie’s adventurous new story invites readers to buckle their space belts for this unprecedented white-knuckle ride into the surprisingly crowded outer atmosphere.

Take a ride into the near future and join the Daedalus Exploration and Mining Corporation (DEMCO) as its expert team attempts to not only steer the huge asteroid named Icarus, but also mine it and make a huge profit. First, the team of Ken and Jan need to fly into space and latch on to the huge rock. It all seemed entirely possible, according to the expert calculations of the DEMCO team, but not all goes as planned in space. Would Ken and Jan live to tell about their brave attempt to save our beloved planet (and make a fortune)?

Readers who wish to experience this enthralling work can purchase “Sailing Daedalus” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
