Infusion (Diffusion Book 2)
Devastated by the loss of his son in a remote rainforest of Indonesian Papua, Quentin Darnell now must struggle to get his wife and surviving students safely back to civilization. But surviving the trek out of the wilderness is only the first challenge, because his group now possesses an object that can create anything or do anything, for better or for worse. Can anyone be trusted with such power? If they can somehow get the object to the United States, will they be heroes—or the world’s destroyers?
Quentin and his group face impossible choices with each perilous leg of their journey. And every triumph that takes them closer to home also takes them closer to a more personal dilemma—they may no longer be welcome there.
About Stan C. Smith (Kansas City, Missouri & Kansas Author)
Novels like the Diffusion series have been bottled up in Stan Smith for most of his life. As a kid, he devoured Tarzan and John Carter novels and daydreamed of exploring uncharted jungles. That kid still exists in him today. He and his wife, Trish, have hiked the rainforests of a half dozen tropical countries. They haven't uncovered any ancient world-altering secrets, but then they're not yet finished looking. There is also a sentimental side to this adventurous sci-fi lover. That sentimentality shines in the love stories, Blue Arrow and Parthenium's Year.
Stan taught biology to middle school students for eleven years and then trained teachers to use technology for another eighteen years. When he is not writing, he is usually spending time with their five children and ten grandchildren, or he is out canoeing, hiking, fishing, or hunting in his home state of Missouri.
