From official release/information:
Heinlein would have loved Travis Taylor's Warp Speed which reads like a cross between Heinlein, Doc Smith, and James Hogan and moves along at a pace which befits the title and leaves you wanting more...which we might well get in the author's next book, The Quantum Connection. Travis' wife goaded him into writing a science fiction, and the result is Warp Speed which moves along about that fast. If you remember Doc Smith's Skylark from the golden age, you'll find some resonance here when a physicist unlocks the secret to warp travel and stirs up a hornets nest on earth. How could you not like a guy who gives his main character Heinlein's middle name and quibbles with Star Wars logic? We'll be seeing more of Travis Taylor, and I'll be looking forward to it.
