Every year, all across the planet, people simply vanish, completely disappear and are never seen again. Some areas of the world are well known for this phenomenon. Infinity’s Gateway opens with a very famous incident that took place just after the end of World War II with the United States Navy. The story then jumps to the present day with an unexplainable event that occurs off the coast of Florida, an event that cannot be ignored by the military.
The Navy ship Eclipse and its crew are sent to investigate, but after several days come up empty. Two days before returning to port, the event reoccurs, and the Eclipse is caught up in something it cannot escape. The Eclipse and its crew suddenly find themselves completely isolated, all communication lost, surrounded by a terribly hostile environment where each day is a struggle to survive. Infinity’s Gateway is an intense, action packed story of survival, self-reliance, and discovery.
PRAISE FOR INFINITY’S GATEWAY:
“Infinity’s Gateway is an engaging science fiction thriller with tones of Michael Crichton Tom Clancy. To fans of the science fiction genre it will feel like an old friend with a surprising, and exciting new makeover.” —Joseph Mauceri, Executive Editor, Fearsmag.com.

I was a kid in the 70s. The Bermuda Triangle got a lot of airtime back them. There was even a movie made about it. It was this big mystery – what happened to the ships and people and things that went into that area and were never heard from or seen again?
In Infinity’s Gateway, James S. Parker does a fabulous job of envisioning what might have happened. The action starts right off the bat, in the WWII era. During a training exercise, several Navy planes go missing. They’re there and then, they aren’t. No one can explain it.
Fast forward to the present day. An anomaly of some kind is sighted out in the ocean. The Navy sends the Eclipse, a top-of-the-line research vessel, and personnel both military and civilian to investigate. The Eclipse carries Argos, the biggest, baddest, smartest, indeed, most self-aware computer ever created. Surely with Argos online, they can figure out what this thing is.
From there, the mystery and adventure just deepens. I’m not going to tell you what happens. Parker does a bang-up job of that. Let’s just say there’s a lot of action, some unexpected twists and turns, suspense, intrigue, and some pretty out-of-this world stuff. It is a fascinating imagining of how the Bermuda Triangle might operate.
It didn’t take me too long to get engrossed in this book, and I’m eagerly awaiting the next in the series. Parker is working on a screenplay request, and I for one think it will make a great movie or series. I’d even pay full movie ticket prices to go see it (and I don’t do that often).
If you like whopping good sci-fi stories with a bit of history to them, well researched and well written, pick up Infinity’s Gateway. Five super stars from me.

Every now and then author James S. Parker has a vision. And, when he does, he sees people and places off in the misty distance. Sometimes these visions are futuristic and filled with danger. Most often they are mystical, with good and evil and a cast of characters who beautifully represent both.
In his high school years James experienced a spine-tingling brush with the supernatural. That single event – complete with the sound of heavy footsteps and an invisible visitor – etched forever in his mind the idea that life is much more mysterious than we oftentimes admit — that the spiritual world is all around us, and that its impact on us cannot be denied.
Though he sees through a glass darkly, he writes as though he has been granted a glimpse into the unknown, one that has informed his novels and their powerful stories of good and evil and the struggles we all face every day to assure that good wins.
Infinity’s Gateway, the first book in a fascinating sci-fi adventure trilogy, is his latest work. James lives in San Antonio, Texas with his wife Margaret. He is available for in-person and online book club visits.
