Nathan created a plausible world of worm holes, jump drives and solar sails where the brave, or desperate, travel through space to move cargo from one system to another. The story is not really about science or space travel, it is really about Ishmael Whong, his grown and experiences.
Did I mention it's free? All books through podiobooks.com are free to download. The recommended donation of $9.99 is just that, a recommendation, you don't have to pay it. As a side note, for books I have started and lost interest in, I have skipped the donation. But for Nathan's books, I felt it was well worth the ten bucks. He gets $7.50 of that and in comparison to the royalties from the sale of a single print book, that's pretty good.
I'm still working on my own book that I will submit through podiobooks.com, The Price of Friendship. I am on my 23rd episode and at about 43,000 words. I have recorded the 1st 18 episodes before and released them on various podcasts, but have re edited them and will record them new after I have completed the 1st draft of the complete novel. (10,000 words to go.)
