Matt Browne - Press release of new sci-fi novel - The Future Happens Twice
New science fiction writer Matt Browne explores the ramifications of identical twins born years apart in THE FUTURE HAPPENS TWICE (Book 1 in the trilogy: THE PERENNIAL PROJECT, ISBN: 978-1844018307, Published by Athena Press, London)
"For decades scientists have dreamed of sending deep-frozen humans on interstellar missions. But until this dream comes true, they must settle for a much simpler technique available: the freezing of human embryos. However, long distance space travel of this nature poses other challenges, none more so than the management of artificial pregnancies and how to raise the children produced."
