So what is a mystic science fiction series? Mystic is a most unusual type of technology depicted in the books. As its name implies, it differs from the conventional technology of the book’s future in both use and result. Arthur C. Clarke once stated a few maxims which are apropos to this topic:
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
The technology and setting are fascinating, but it’s the characters that will grab you. The series is built around around a very human family. Real characters striving to better themselves, thrust into events as large as those faced by many of our forefathers. They are not perfect, but you will relate to their private struggles, and cheer their quiet and sometimes not-so-quiet triumphs.
