Chemical Engineer's Debut Novel Wins Plaudits from Sci-Fi Best-Selling Author

Fourteen years from conception to launch pad – the journey from edible oil to deep space
HORNCASTLE, U.K. - Sept. 4, 2023 - PRLog -- A Suggestion in Space, the debut novel from Alan R Paine, has been classed as an "epic interstellar adventure" by best-selling science-fiction novelist, Drew Wagar.

Alan R Paine, a chemical engineer in the edible oil processing industry, has brought his scientific expertise to the forefront in crafting a science-fiction narrative that is both plausible and engrossing. His unique background has made him somewhat of a novelty at work conferences, where he is known as the Chemical Engineer who Writes Science Fiction.

"It has taken 14 years from the day I started writing this book in 2009 to its official launch in 2023," says Alan, reflecting on the journey to bring A Suggestion in Space to fruition. "It's a long journey and a long time, but nowhere near as long as the journey my characters have to make."

A Suggestion in Space will appeal to readers of all ages. With meticulous attention to detail, Alan explores the nuances of space travel where, to conquer vast distances, space travellers must essentially cease to exist and become no more than a suggestion in space for the duration of the journey.

Fantastic Books Publishing CEO, Dan Grubb, expresses his confidence in Alan's work, stating, "Alan has been working on this book for several years, and I knew he had got it into shape once I heard he'd won the approval of best-selling author, Drew Wagar."

A Suggestion in Space will be launched on October 21st, and is available at:
