Publisher's Summary

Contains books one and two of The Stasis Stories.

A Pause in Space-Time, Book 1 

Kaem Seba is a sickly and financially destitute young man with extraordinary math skills. With the help of Arya Vaii, a business student, he has developed a theory and an electronic device that allows him to stop time within limited volumes of space-time. 

It quickly becomes obvious that, beyond the fact that time stops inside the stasis field, the volume of space-time in stasis might be useful for some of its other phenomenal properties. Unfortunately, the owner of the lab that tested the properties of their samples also recognizes their potential. His desire to share in their profits unhinges his shaky grasp on reality....

The Thunder of Engines, Book 2 

Kaem and Arya are trying to sell “stade”, a piece of space-time in stasis, for its phenomenal mechanical properties. 

Stronger than any known substance, it cannot not melt, burn, bend or break. It’s also a perfect insulator and reflects all radiation. Essentially, it can’t be altered; time is stopped within it. Kaem and Arya are struggling to negotiate the best prices they can while simultaneously fighting another company’s bid to pre-empt their patent. As if those struggles weren’t sufficient, Kaem’s beloved father develops cancer. He must try to help his family through that crisis while simultaneously attempting to save the company.

great book but

I like the authors books. mostly light hearted and an OP technology that catapults the world development in amazing directions.

the author has written several series on this type of topic.

this series the things holding back the protagonist are other people's racism, and a genetic disability. the racism seems overdone and annoying to me. I still enjoyed the rest of the book so it still gets three stars.

if you feel that everyone is inherently racist, and must work hard to get past it, then this book is for you. if you don't feel that way, then this book will sometimes annoy you.

please finish the Hyllis Family Story series!!!

The book was pretty good but was at little hard to follow at first but once you get involved with the story and pay attention it has some good concepts.

I wish Mr Dangers would finish his Phyllis Family Story series I have been waiting for the last 2 books forever, that is a great series if anyone wants to take a chance.

Extremely boring story. Performance was ok.

I started out thinking, "Oo, space-time! There must be exciting time travel, intrigue, and moral dilemmas around the ethics of science." Nope. None of that.

No real sci-fi, except for the mention of the box that they made, with no real explanation of how it was made and with absolutely no exploration of using that earth-shattering science to do anything other than building things, like really-tough plates and pucks. How about travel through time?! Forwards, backwards, anything?! Nope. Let's sell some plates for next to nothing.

This seemed like an effort to find the most boring aspect of controlling the flow of time and then turning it into a 10-hour lecture on the intricate details of the process of materials testing (except rife with inaccuracies) and spice it up with the most banal, dry, lifeless experience with launching a startup.

Skip it.

Thanks for the bundle!

Even though I had reread these stories recently when the 3rd book came out, seeing them packaged into a bundle made it easy to chose to spend my credit on it. I enjoyed listening to the stories very much!
