Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Kuiperverse, a riveting, hard science fiction universe cocreated and written by Matthew Medney (Heavy Metal Magazine CEO, NYU adjunct professor) and John Connelly (Lockheed Martin aerospace engineer).

Starring the vocal talents of Kyle Perrin, Dylan Sprouse, and George C. Romero.

Beyond Kuiper is brought to the audio medium as an immersive sound designed and scored audiobook. Includes 21 original tracks (written and produced by Kyle Perrin and Matthew Medney) that are available alongside the Codex as bonus chapters.

The Galactic Star Alliance has been alive and well for millions of Earth years. Hundreds of thousands of worlds and trillions of beings move across the many home worlds of the Alliance. This revelation invites many questions: How is faster-than-light speed travel possible, and could cohesive, interstellar civilizations exist without it? Is it conceivable to govern a coalition not of different countries but of different species?

There are some who believe it is out there. Not as science-fantasy but as science.

We introduce Bernard William Hubert. World-renowned astrophysicist and lead scientist of the seminal company of exploration, Outer Limits. While on loan to CERN, a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions leaves Bernard as the sole survivor. While the scientific community and world look to him for answers, he simply states the unthinkable: "It has to be aliens." Inconceivable to the world, the Hubert family is investigated, and his family's name tarnished.

Disgraced and shunned, Bernard claws his way back into the equation with his new company, C.O.R.E., as they work tirelessly to design an engine capable of interstellar travel.

Follow Bernard on his road to redemption and discovery in this ensemble cast of futurism, space travel, and the fate of our species. As for the title, from where would our judges watch us?

The Galactic Star Alliance awaits your exploration.

Critic Reviews

“An exercise in serious world building and storytelling seldom undertaken on this scale, especially by first-time novelists.” (Jeff Berkwitz, Sci-Fi Magazine)

“Galaxy-spanning science fiction with both smarts and hearts...and impressive, immersive world-building.” (Ron Marz, author of Green Lantern, Silver Surfer, Witchblade)

“Science fiction often asks us to reckon with the current zeitgeist while enveloping the reader in a saga that takes us far, far away from our everyday problems. If done successfully, it’s truly fantastic. And Beyond Kuiper is truly fantastic sci-fi.” (Joe Trohman, creator of Fall Out Boy)

Dirstracting Sound effects.

The amount of extra sounds and music added in really detracts from the over all story. Weather it was music, sound effect over voices or just the extra long pauses while the narrator waited for the sounds to stop, pulled me out if the story every time. There are numerous high pitched ringing similar to tennitus at the begainning, this alone made it near impossible to listen to. In some instances the music or a blank part goes on for an extended amount of time that I wasnt sure if the book paused or was ended. The length of the book is around 9 hours, not the nearly 14 that is stated. There is about 3 hours worth of music at the end of the book, with a glossery as well. The glossery does not add anything as its the same as what is between the chapters. The story is interesting with some pretty good sci-fi baked in. If you are interested in the story I highly suggest you get a hard copy or e-pub version.

Beyond Kuiper is just the type of scifi i love!

I started listening to Beyond Kuiper on Audible because I’m always looking for new scifi & this new book was recommended by a friend. It’s a great premise for a story & a flawless execution by the authors. Following Bernard’s journey leaves me wanting to hear the story continue!

Must read!

What drives our sense of duty? Is the ego or the Id? Bernard grapples with this constantly and the authors do a great job of holding their cards close and not revealing their true hand. I am already excited for the possibility of a second book and a deeper understanding of motivations as each central character moves through this artistically, and carefully, crafted world. The Complex and intriguing plot move this seemingly timeless story quickly and succinctly. It is peppered with pop culture references and “tips of the hat” to modern sci-fi. With the latter age as gracefully as the former? Only time will tell. This novel keep me on the edge of my seat and ready for more. From the audible books I have listened to this has its own sound track. A++ they nail the sound scape of this novel and world and completely an authentic sound that does not appear contrived or over ambitious. Blow away by this alone.

Music and effects waste my time.

Music and effects add nothing to the story and can needlessly stretch listening time. Maybe have a version without.

Just No, Don't Do It... Read the book instead

Um... so.... no this is not an audio book this is a poorly produced quasi musical heap of junk. Don't waste your money/credit on this. The story is great, but the production, consisting of background 80's synth music and the monotonal reading make me think this was used by agents in Guantanamo Bay to break inmates into giving up info just to make the hurt stop. Please do yourself a favour and get the book instead... Refund.. Check
