The Optical Lasso: Beware of Neptune's Dark Side by Marc Corwin
Published February 11th 2019 by Page Publishing, Inc.; 376 pages
In the year 2140 CE, Planet 9, more commonly known as Vixus, has resurfaced on the edge of the Milky Way... the only known planet that periodically reverses its rotation. Last seen in the middle of the Kuiper Belt in 2066 CE, it mysteriously disappeared after being discovered by a Galactic Corps scout ship.
The unknown energy source enabling Vixus to spin in opposite directions represented great power which could help turn the tide in a war Earth was losing. The Fighting Fury, the Corps' finest platoon, has been called in to conduct a search and rescue operation for several missing landing parties.
Following a fierce battle on the planet surface, Lieutenant Janet "Cat" Miles, leader of this elite group of combat women, was captured. She soon found herself imprisoned with the Corps' most fabled leader, Commander Jason Cody. His name would forever be linked to the infamous wormhole hidden on Neptune's dark side; an area of space now cautiously avoided by all due to the menace which lurks within.
Paranoia raced through both leaders' minds. Could he trust a woman who seemingly had no imperfections? Could she trust a man who had vanished from sight years ago? Earth's future laid in the balance as they struggled to overcome their mutual distrust and acknowledge what those before them understood: "If you live long enough, the wisdom will come."

About Marc Corwin:
A glimpse of where the unique strands of The Optical Lasso originated:
The story depicts a creature lying dormant beneath the Earth's crust for over 35,000 years, waiting patiently to transform a dying young boy into a world leader at a time of great need. In a similar fashion, it required a freak accident to release the tale of The Optical Lasso from the deep recesses of Marc Corwin's mind, whose imagination has silently run amok since childhood, inside the Golden Age of comic books.
In 2015, a voice spoke to a wide-eyed Marc Corwin, as he awoke uninsured, after his car hydroplaned off a rain-soaked highway, plummeting 25 feet straight into the desert floor outside Las Vegas, Nevada... compelling him to write this narrative of science fiction fantasy.
A story aided in part by the renowned Hollywood producers, the Mirisch brothers, close friends of Marc's father, whose careers crossed paths in the theater business in Chicago. Classic hits such as the Pink Panther, West Side Story, In The Heat Of The Night, and Some Like It Hot, were introduced to the author at an early age, helping to broaden his Midwestern outlook on life.
The unrestricted boundaries of rhythm and sound also were impactful. For Marc worked within his family's chain of music stores as a teenager, which allowed the grand story telling of The Moody Blues, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, and The Temptations, amongst many others, play an influential role in his creative development which continues to this day.
Half the royalties earned from the sale of The Optical Lasso will be donated to the Grace Science Foundation to aid in the development of cost-effective cures for the over 7000 known rare diseases currently afflicting an estimated 350 million people worldwide.
