Working the Galaxy

Working the Galaxy is a podcast in which writer James Prescott reads his science fiction novel Between Earth And Arcturus, about explorers who use their spaceship to rebel against tyranny and stumble onto an alien civilization. It also includes (and begins with) a three-part prequel The Starship Himilco.

Gentry Stokes III was born in the year 2766 and is the son of the richest man in the galaxy. He is a young man troubled by superhuman strength which he must hide from the world and a belief that his grandfather was an alien.

Unfortunately, scientific opinion has concluded that the probability of aliens in the galaxy is zero, so Gentry’s obsession with his ancestry lands him in mental hospital until Clifford Poluka gives him the opportunity to prove the existence of aliens.

Gentry is a mathematics prodigy who, at the age of 19 years, finds a way out of the mental hospital and onto the Starship Himilco for the first manned mission to Arcturus.

The novel Between Earth And Arcturus follows the adventures of Gentry's sister, Lynda, as she tries to discover what became of her brother.
