Comets of Omen
A novel by Charles E. Weindorf
Comets is a story of prophecy in a number of forms. As explorers from Earth spread among neighboring stars, mankind discovers riches of many other planets. Each discovery causes the value of raw materials in the empire to drop dramatically; any strife triggers prices to explode. Businesses on Earth that deal in the value of commodities will pay any price for the accurate prediction of prices.
The Triad military, intent on keeping peace in the empire, uses the Forshadowing Society to predict any unrest among the wormpipe worlds. The predictions of gifted humans gave the Triad critical days advance to defend settlements and the invaluable wormpipe gateways.
The discovery of the Pressers upsets the balance of the Earth empire. The Presser Visionaries begin to affect the human grip on the many worlds, and leads a renegade admiral to seek to destroy their world. The Pressers stone-age perfect sight of the future will be challenged by the limitless might of the empire.
