Product description

Product Description

It’s 2206 and the president of the Free States of America is scheming to declare herself a dictator after the 2208 election.

When Eric Stewart, inventor of the Stewart Faster-than-Light drive and owner of the giant Stewart Industries conglomerate, discovers her plot, he launches a desperate plan to escape to a virgin planet with as many people and as much industrial capacity as he can. But he and his fellow conspirators have a spy in their midst.

It’s a race against the president’s enforcement squad and time — and the time-bomb is ticking.

Rated PG-13 (some violence)

4.0 out of 5 stars The Exodus has started already… 18 June 2016
By Bob Goddard - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What to do when a psychotic despot takes over your country and threatens your very existence? You up sticks, take your loved ones and leave for a safer place, right? With a plot that seems scarily close to current reality, Al Philipson’s cracking sci-fi drama takes us on a break-neck, roller-coaster ride to escape the closing jaws of menace.
If you enjoy this as much as I did, you’ll be pleased to know there will be a second book in the series – God’s Assassin – to look forward to and an earlier book – Children of Destruction – available right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brand New Sub-genre 18 July 2015
By John B. Bowers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don’t think I’ve ever read, or even heard of, a “Christian science fiction” novel…until now. Al Philipson may have just engineered a brand new sub-genre in the science fiction world, and it’s a beauty.

WAIT!! For readers who aren’t into Christian fiction, have no fear—I’m an atheist and I loved the book. The Christian message is there for those who appreciate it, but it doesn’t take up much space and it isn’t at all preachy. Trust me, you will be immersed in the larger story and you’ll hardly notice it. This book is that good.

Rockwell Chandler is CEO of Stewart Industries, a mega-corporation that manufactures just about everything you could want on Earth, the Moon, and outer space. The problem is that President Damon, who is running for reelection, is moving the country toward totalitarianism and plans to rule with an iron fist. Her hit squads are already taking out all critics, but in spite of that, her popularity remains on the rise, thanks to engineered “protests” that appeal to the uninformed masses. But once Damon gets control, personal freedom will become a distant memory.

The solution? Escape from Earth. Stewart Industries has the resources and manufacturing magnitude to set up a complete new colony on another star system light years away, and other such colonies have already been established. The problem is that Stewart will take with it about 20% of the nation’s industrial capacity, so Damon will take steps to prevent the move. The trick, then, is to pull off the escape, lock stock and people, before she figures out what is going on (sort of like Jews trying to get out of Germany before 1939); time is of the essence, and the time bombs are ticking.

Can they pull it off? And if they do, how high will be the cost? This is a nail-biter from page one, and the pages flip faster than Gone With the Wind. I’m not easily impressed and I was captivated right down to the last paragraph. I can’t wait for the next book. Five stars all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you catch that train... 19 July 2015

Last Train from Earth…

You have a world in political chaos with the leaders pulling the strings. As usual you have a group of people not willing to be led to the slaughter. They have their own strings to pull and their own agenda to follow.

Rock and Eric are friends and colleagues who are focused on not only keeping their group alive, but also to build a new world. From personal tragedy to personal triumph their group goes through every emotion. There are secrets that are exposed and lives that are changed through fate.

Sometimes it is hard to tell friend from foe as the battle unfolds. Will they succeed, will they get their wish? An excellent read that kept me focused…I can’t wait for the next!

A story for the future…or is it? Make sure you catch that train…

The Last Train From Earth

Al Philipson creates an adventure many people fantasize about. What if there are more planets? What if some of those planets likened so much to earth that humans—and all of God’s creations—could live and prosper on them? What would it take to move to such a planet? How could that possibly be done? Who makes the decision of who can go, who stays? Who decides what animals and plants and other objects unique to earth can be taken along? One cannot build an arc to save the world as Noah did—or can they? Al Philipson embarks on one phase, I believe, many fail to consider—just who makes those vital decisions? How do they make them? What if your current government objects to anyone taking this venture without express government supervision?

One might say, government interference and religious persecution are the reason the Pilgrims came to America. Except, the Pilgrims only crossed an ocean. They didn’t have to travel to a planet five light years away from earth. And, while most took all they owned, they didn’t have to take materials to build homes, churches, businesses with them.

The Last Train From Earth is an intriguing story with continual turns and unexpected twists that are sure to keep the reader turning pages to the very end.

I cannot wait to read the next edition!
