Passengers to Zeta Nine

By Peter Salisbury


The second of Peter Salisbury’s Passenger novels. Each book can be read in sequence or as a stand alone story.

The electronic mind patterns and DNA records of Raife Harris and Doctor Nancy Zing have been travelling for one hundred and twenty years. They will be the first humans to see Zeta Nine.

The AI system aboard an Explorer ship is only interested in worlds habitable by humans. Raife and Doctor Zing are naturally excited when they wake to find Explorer 5017 in orbit. The viewscreen displays a beautiful Earth-class planet covered in lush vegetation and warm seas. Even better, there is an apparent absence of biohazards and predators. Everything looks perfect but is it too good to be true?

Follow the pioneers’ journey as they fight to maintain their colony. Together they battle against unseen dangers, explore a forest canopy which conceals an ancient mystery, and discover a cache of curious metallic objects.

About the Author

Peter Salisbury

From his early teens Peter Salisbury seized on anything science fiction: novels, comics and short stories. He then started on the classics and has been fascinated by tinkering around with words ever since.

Peter obtained a Chemistry degree at London University in the 1970s. Thereafter, he avoided chemistry during his teaching career, focusing instead on Communication Skills, General Science, and IT. In the 1990s, Peter wrote non-fiction professionally, abstracting from patents of chemical inventions for a London science publisher.

Peter Salisbury’s first novel was published in 2009. More than a dozen books later, he still has many more stories to tell and he hopes you enjoy reading them as much as he enjoys writing them.
