Like Asimov, I want to take the readers into the future, to faraway places, to the farthest reaches of space where adventures, challenges and mysteries lie.

Ambit Welder transports readers into a future where the existence of mankind is threatened by a powerful, vindictive being in his new science fiction novel, "The Adventures of Deacon Coombs: The Case of the Vanishing Vesper" (published by iUniverse).

"The writings of Isaac Asimov inspired me to write this novel," Welder states. "Like Asimov, I want to take the readers into the future, to faraway places, to the farthest reaches of space where adventures, challenges and mysteries lie."

It’s the year 3533. Earth and its allies have forged friendships and peace, only to be invaded by a diabolical species unlike anything ever imagined. Detective Deacon Coombs, a novice explorer and traveler from Earth, is tasked with identifying the malevolent force. Together with two trusted, advanced robots, Gem and Jim, and the aid of two space traders and a female security officer named Quobit, Deacon follows clues that take him to the farthest reaches of space.

An excerpt from "The Adventures of Deacon Coombs":

"The voice was mesmerizing, deep, and mighty. The beast enunciated each syllable in pulsating tones, reciting words foreign to Deacon but familiar to the crowd—or so he judged by their raging reaction. There was obviously an amplification system projecting this fearful message. The creature raced along the edge of the cliff, searching, probing, examining the mob. Deacon trembled. Now he decided to take a deep breath and face the devil."
