The Web and the StarsBook - 2007
The Timeweb is a fantastically beautiful galactic web, an immense canvas of space and time connecting the entire galaxy, acting as a transportational infrastructure on which enigmatic, sentient spacecraft (podships) travel at faster-than-light speeds. But now the Timeweb is disintegrating, threatening to send the entire galaxy tumbling into oblivion. The fate of mankind depends on the heroic galactic ecologist Noah Watanabe. The multi-planet Human Empire of merchant princes is engaged in an ongoing war against the Mutatis, a dangerous race of shapeshifters. Noah has put a defensive plan into effect to prevent the Mutati Kingdom from using a doomsday weapon to blow up Human-controlled planets. He also has a paranormal ability to journey into the depths of the universe. But despite his altruistic efforts, Noah has made dangerous enemies of his own kind. Meanwhile, another force secretly plots to destroy the two galactic races: the powerful HibAdu Coalition, comprised of treacherous former allies of the merchant princes and the shapeshifters. The Coalition has perfected the manufacture of artificial podships for the delivery of their own military attacks. It is their goal to conquer both empires and divide the spoils of war.
