About the Book

Cédric J. Rothschild was introduced in two previous novels, The Timecharger and La Charlière through second-hand accounts after Cédric's death. This book, Cédric, goes back in time to tell the life story of this remarkable scientist, discoverer, and inventor from the beginning. His hypothesis that the speed of light slows down in the vicinity of massive objects led to the discovery of microfusion, unlocking the energy source of neutron stars and ending once and for all the tyranny of fossil fuels. The discovery of microfusion and the subsequent discovery of antigravity took place in the small town of Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne in the French Alps. Cédric is a prequel, completing the trilogy of the William Grovére collection of novels. At a time when more wars and rumors of war over fossil fuels and petroleum blackmail stir once again in the world, Cédric offers a more optimistic view of what the future may hold for my grandchildren, who are Cédric’s contemporaries today.

About the Author

William Grovère is a seventy-year-old retired scientist and inventor residing in Golden, Colorado. After a corporate career working in research and development for a major American company, Grovère now applies lessons learned from his scientific endeavors and ideas contemplated throughout his life to the realm of fiction. He writes in a style called “science future”, after the model of Jules Verne, where details of how things might work sixty years in the future are described–exploring technology innovation in ways that might impact his grandchildren when they reach his age. As a serious scientist having authored many scientific publications and holding several patents, he weaves plausible science into various adventures involving fictitious characters caught up in the unexpected consequences of technology that advance more rapidly than people are able to assimilate it.
