About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Fumes, dust and smoke rose all around us. Then the shuttle slowly, very slowly, listed to the right hand side.
"We're alive," Malamud said with surprise.
For a moment the smoke cleared. We looked out, through the tangled vegetation wrapped around the shuttle, at some trees, and beyond them a green mountain slope.
"Still got your low opinion of learning?" Dag asked Malamud as he unstrapped himself. "Because without Pi's learning we wouldn't now be alive."
"I only wish he had a little more learning," Malamud said as he too unstrapped himself, "then we might not have had such a bumpy landing."
As for me, I sat there exhausted, unable to move. I remember attempting to smile at them, and at the same time feeling the gravity stirring the nausea within me. My head wound throbbed. The pain became a breathless thump deep in my heart. Then I lost consciousness again.

The greatest Sci-fi sagas ask is there anyone out there and how do they live and exist. In towards the unMaking of Heaven, Sam Smith takes us to one of these places, where humans are not necessarily the dominant species and first steps of life are emerging from wherever it desires.

Balant: A Beginning is book one in a series of five. Each book is intricately linked and delves deeper into what is known as the Supreme Civilisation, until the ultimate drawing together in the finale.

Deftly constructed at 212 pages, "towards the unMaking of Heaven, Balant: A Beginning" is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Science Fiction category.
