    Book details

When the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it's up to six university students and their experimental physics project to prevent the end of civilization.

When an experiment to study quantum uncertainty goes spectacularly wrong, physics student Richard and his friends find that they have accidentally created an inter-dimensional portal. They connect to an alternate Earth with identical geology, but where humans never evolved. They go panning for gold and become millionaires overnight, while fantasizing about Nobel Prizes and patents.

Then the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts on Earth in an explosion large enough to destroy civilization and kill half the planet. Richard and his friends have less than an afternoon to get as many people as possible across to Outland before Nebraska is covered in a lethal cloud of ash.

Now Richard finds himself in charge of a disorganized and frightened band of reluctant pioneers, on a world with none of the modern infrastructure that people have come to depend on. Richard has been a loner all his life, and has always wanted to be part of something bigger– but this is far more than he bargained for. If he doesn’t get this right, it’s not just the lives of the people in his care that could be lost– it may very well be the end of human civilization.

Review Text

  • By Mr Dekmar on 13 May 2017

    I loved this book it had everything you could have asked for in a good novel. I really loved the characters, this author has a great imagination.

  • By Jules on 23 February 2015

    Good book, a little slow to start but once you get past the begining then a really good premise for further books. I hope we will see the next book soon.

    I am a sci if freak, and I cam across For we are many on audible. Tracked the author and found this. Now waiting for the next of both series. Hard Sci-fi but with good characters.

    Interesting concept, good characters and great read

  • By Sarumano on 3 May 2017

    Excellent tale, and quite well written, too. For once, the homophones (my particular bête noir) were under strict control - I only spotted the one leech where the context meant leach.I'm on to the next series by this author, purely from this book, but I am eagerly looking for the next in the World-Lines series.

    Great imagination. Sets the scenario very convincingly. Characters very believable (not so much the baddies!). Above all a great read. What more can you ask?
