Publisher's Summary

A married couple face eight years of separation as the husband goes off on a deep space mission. They knew it would be difficult, but they weren't prepared for the cruelty of the unknown. Coming to terms with new equations and ways of looking at the future is difficult enough, but can any relationship prevail when the only tie to the present starts to break down?
This debut novelette by Jake Kerr is a modern classic of science fiction.
Nominated for the Nebula Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, and the StorySouth Million Writers Award, it immediately established Kerr as a modern force in science fiction's humanist tradition.
This full cast audio production features Grammy and Audie winner Stefan Rudnicki, Heather Scott, Grammy nominee and Audie winner Gabrielle de Cuir, and Ted Scott. Sound design by 50NuggetWash.

Interesting take on alternate history

In Jake Kerr's "The Old Equations" the space explorer in the story lives in a universe where Albert Einstein's theories were never taken seriously. Relativity was the ravings of a crackpot amateur scientist--until mission control and the astronaut begin to see anomalies in the quantum entangled communications.

A wonderful bit of short fiction with deep emotion, I highly recommend "The Old Equations."
