Tom Miller's Star-Born Universe -- Episode One: Necessity is a sci-fi adventure novella written by Peter Doran. Tom Miller, a CAD operator, lives a humdrum life on the outskirts of Los Angeles. In constant conversation with his inner self, Greyum, Tom accidentally discovers futuristic technology that enables him to travel vast distances with the minimal use of energy. He converts his black 1982 Pontiac Fire-Bird Trans-Am into a flying car capable of bypassing the atmosphere. But his discovery lands him in Guantanamo Bay after the FBI arrests him on suspicion of being an international terrorist. However, over the years, world leaders' reluctance to acknowledge the ills of global warming brings the planet to the brink of a devastating catastrophe. Tom must now work with NASA to help them develop technology that makes fossil fuels redundant.

Tom Miller's Star-Born Universe -- Episode One: Necessity is a wild rollercoaster of a ride that touches upon some surprisingly poignant topics related to the fabric of our universe. Through Tom, author Peter Doran tells the tale of a misunderstood introverted genius who finds himself trapped in a society that fails to utilize his gifts. The prose is utilitarian, making it accessible to readers across all age groups. Doran incorporates some theoretical scientific concepts in a way that they blend seamlessly into the narrative. This is Tom's story, and the rest of the characters are merely used as tools to move the plot forward. If you're looking for a short and fast-paced sci-fi adventure, grab a copy.
