Even at this distance from the sun, Pluto and its large moon, Charon, shown brightly-No! How can this be? Andy feels himself floating toward a sea of blackness as he hears the captains frantic voice: Mission Control, we are being pushed out of orbit. Deep Space One is accelerating away from the Pluto system-controls are not responding to my commands-we...were headed back toward Earth!

Its 2094. Doctor Andrew Jackson, an astrobiologist, has perfected a hibernation process that will allow humans to travel to the far reaches of the solar system. He persuades World Dynamics Inc., the worlds largest aerospace conglomerate, and the United World Council to co-sponsor an expedition to Pluto. Theres only one catch. The trip to Pluto will take four years, longer than anyone has ever hibernated.

Andy agrees to be sealed in a capsule and goes underground to prove his system works, but an earthquake in 2097 causes Andys capsule to go missing. He is rescued many centuries later by an advanced race of humans who call themselves the Unoites. The Unoites live in the shadow of a profound mystery: that Plutos two small moons, Hydra and Nix, are not moons at all but artificial satellites-placed there by whom?

When? Andy is discovered by Phoebe, the Unoites lone, sentient artificial intelligence. His awakening and acceptance by the Unoites allows Phoebe to gain new insights into the Pluto Enigma-but will she be able to share her new knowledge with her human friends? The Pluto Enigma, the first entry in the Children of the Nan trilogy, offers an optimistic yet enigmatic view of the future that readers will find both plausible and desirable. It will soon be followed by Unos Gambit, which sets the stage for the shocking conclusion brought to fruition in book III, Homo Galaxia.
