Readers be warned! You will laugh often. You will laugh loudly. This book will take you twice as long to read because you’ll stop to laugh so much—it is that funny. The story follows hapless, but hilarious, Victorian poet Lionel Savage who, after selling his wife to the Devil, gathers a group of adventurers to mount a rescue. Snappy dialogue and heroic, misguided (and often sarcastic) antics abound in a comedy so deftly written by Forrest Leo you’ll think he must have made his own pact with the Devil.

In 1977 NASA launched the Voyager satellites on a ‘Grand Tour’ of the outer planets that fundamentally altered our view of the cosmos. Those robotic explorers are now speeding off into the vastness of interstellar space. They are likely to be humanity’s most enduring artifacts. Marvelously presented by Bell in a compelling and lucid manner, this is a story that everyone should read to learn the wonders of scientific and personal discovery. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of Voyager scientist Rich Terrile who said "Voyager was the most amazing experience of my life."
