New Eden by Kishore Tipirneni is urban science fiction at its best. From the opening sentence when a professor of particle physics, Dr. Henry Bowman, declares quite brazenly, ‘Einstein was wrong,’ my imagination was captured. It’s not every day a scientist can say that about the godfather of modern physics. During his momentous demonstration proving information does indeed travel faster than the speed of light, Dr. Bowman keels over and expires in his triumphant moment. Five years later, Dr. Joshua Andrews, former student assistant to Dr. Bowman, is still trying to recreate Bowman’s Spookyon technology without success. When he finally succeeds in his experiment, the face of science and the world is about to change forever because, with Spookyon technology, the human race can now communicate across galaxies in a matter of moments. And when you talk someone is bound to answer.

This is by far one of the best alien sci-fi novels I’ve read so far. Kishore Tipirneni takes us on a wild ride based on a scientific fact. I really loved the way I found myself bamboozled by the twist this story takes using said science. New Eden is a story of discovery, romance, and religion. The two main characters, Josh and Rachel, are agnostic and Christian respectively. In another novel, they would have been at each other's throats trying to prove each other wrong, but the author deals with their differences in a holistic manner that forces the reader to think hard on their own beliefs. Kishore Tipirneni is not preaching; he just presents arguments that one can't help but ponder deeply. Fans of the Predator/Alien movie franchise where humans learn that they are the creations of a faraway race of aliens who may or may not be benevolent will love this series. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out. New Eden can be read as a standalone without worrying about cliffhangers.

First published in 2019, Kishore Tipirneni’s New Eden presents a unique perspective on the existence and origins of life in the known universe. This book confronted me on various levels; the author uses grounded scientific evidence and theory, and then blends it with anthropic ideas about the evolution of life. Layered over this is a fictional story of love, adventure and friendship. In other words, Tipirneni gives us a brilliantly rich narrative of fiction, nonfiction and science fiction.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who has asked the question ‘where did we come from’ either from a theistic or atheistic perspective. (The author appears sympathetic to both views). He also has great taste in music!
