A Science Fiction Adventure with a Napoleonic Twist
A freak accident lifts three youths from a 74 gun man o’ war sailing ship in 1804 and lands them on a spaceship in 2204. The author of several works of fiction, Patrick G. Cox’s newest book, "Harry Heron: Into the Unknown" (paperback ISBN 978-0-9860953-9-9, ebook ISBN 978-0-9860953-3-7), follows the flagship book in the series, "Harry Heron: Midshipman’s Journey," taking the reader from a sea battle between the British and the French in the southern Indian Ocean into a future war in space.
Cox says, “This story combines my love of British naval history, particularly of the sailing navy of Nelson and characters such as Hornblower, Bolitho, and Ramage, with the inspired future worlds envisioned by Asimov, Clark, and Heinlein. It allows me to explore the value of rudimentary sailing and navigational skills no matter what era one finds oneself in.”
Born in Cape Town and educated at Selborne College in East London, South Africa, Patrick G. Cox is a published technical author and lecturer, and a retired firefighter after thirty-six years of soot, heat, blood, sweat, and laughter. He is a Licensed Minister in the Church of England, has three adult children and one new little granddaughter of whom he is enormously proud, and is the author of A Baltic Affair, Limehouse Boys, and Harry Heron: Midshipman’s Journey, the first book in the Harry Heron Adventure Series.
