The final book of the Manifold trilogy opens as astronaut Reid Malenfant flies over the African continent to examine an alien red moon that has emerged to eclipse Earth's moon. When the very fabric of the sky tears open, spilling out living creatures and pulling others inside, including his wife, Malenfant's constant quest to uncover the unknown becomes personal.
From the Publisher:
“ONE OF THE BEST SF WRITERS IN THE BUSINESS . . . [Manifold: Origin is] filled with marvelous scientific speculations, strange events, novel concepts, and an awe-inspiring sense of the wonders of the universe.”
–Science Fiction Chronicle

In the year 2015, astronaut Reid Malenfant is flying over the African continent, intent on examining a mysterious glowing construct in Earth’s orbit. But when the very fabric of the sky tears open, spilling living creatures to the ground and pulling others inside (including his wife, Emma), Malenfant’s quest to uncover the unknown becomes personal. While desperately searching to discover what happened to the woman he loves, Malenfant embarks upon an adventure to the very fount of human development . . . on earth and beyond.
Annotation:
Following an aborted tenure with NASA, Reid Malenfant, now an extremely wealthy businessman, has developed his own space program. Surrounding himself with the best and brightest scientists that money can hire, he discovers a rift in time that suggests a number of possible timelines into the future. Through this rift, Malenfant and his team may be able to shape the future but, in doing so, could irreparably destroy the past.
