Book Description:  

In a massive spaceship destined for Alpha Centauri B, with a genesis crew including Zip the telepathic dog, his old friendly nemesis Cramer, and a computer being named Ra (now inhabiting a human form and calling herself Aten), Simon Bank emerges from a hundred-year coma and is hailed as an awakened hero. Stuck with unwanted responsibility, he is forced to try to solve the entire enigma of the universe—a small undertaking—before the spaceship, his friends, and all life on Earth are swatted out of existence by super beings he has accidentally awakened.

Simon’s only hope is to plunge into other dimensions with his mind—into the secrets of the universe’s pan-dimensions—as only he knows how. The fate of all life hangs in the balance as he struggles to prove himself worthy of the Path and the absolute trust his friends place in him. Simon knows all too well that if he fails there is no hope—none at all—for anyone, and that includes his best friend, an artificial intelligence computer called Apollo, which he sadly left behind. Besides, Zip would not be pleased, either.

For fans of cyberpunk and classic science fiction,  Reaching Angelica (Yucca Publishing; February 2, 2016; 978-1-63158-069-7) is the second book in Peter Riva’s Tag trilogy, the comic, thrilling, and continuing saga of Simon Bank—ex–master system computer wrangler and very unlikely galactic hero.

Praise for Reaching Angelica
“Thrilling moments keep the suspense high in space. . . . The way Riva describes the mysteries of the universe is intriguing. . . . This cyberpunk world has its own laws of stretching brains wide with its mind-bending concepts.”
—Jake Vyper,

Life is all about exploration Debra. I am reasonably well traveled (about 60 countries, four continents) and nothing – nothing- is more exhilarating that an arrival at a destination where you have not been before. The smells, tastes, sounds, people, culture… all these are thankfully different and enlivening for the spirit. Languages? No problem. I always consider the fault is mine so I strive to fit in, learn, adapt.
In the early 80’s I had a chance to work with the astronauts and then with Arthur C. Clarke who wrote the foreword to “Sightseeing; A Space Exploration” – a book on handheld photography in space. Arthur told me his greatest regret was never to travel into space. As I age it has become increasingly clear I too will fail to make the trip. One way? Sure, why not. Think of what you could see and learn! Time doesn’t matter. The quality of the time does. One of the best days I ever spent was on a raft in the Rift Valley in Africa. Just one day, but oh, my God, what a day.
I have represented some of the great photographers of the 20th century, one of whom, Lucien Clergue, passed away recently. Lucien and I spent many weeks traveling together, some of them with Ansel Adams, and the way he saw things my pathetic eye missed was always an instruction. Actually, I guess that’s the trick, to always want to learn. That’s what my books are really about, eye-openers, instruction dressed up as story and plot. I hope you and your followers enjoy them!
