Author: Richard H. Hardy

Genre: Science Fiction

Paperback available at: Amazon


Book Description:

Jon Graeme and Harry Sale are unlikely friends. Harry is a world-class programmer, but

his abrasive personality alienates co-workers. In contrast, Jon is a handsome and easy-
going technical writer, the low man on the IT totem pole.

Sharing a love of nature, the men set out together, planning to go their separate ways–

Jon on a hike and Harry, fly fishing. Three days later, Jon arrives at the rendezvous point,

but his friend is nowhere in sight. When Jon finds Harry unconscious on the floor of a

cave, Harry claims to have been lying there the entire time. But he is neither cold nor

hungry. What Jon doesn’t know is that Harry fell into an underground cavern, where he

came into contact with an alien quantum computer.

Back at work, Harry jettisons his regular tasks and concentrates exclusively on inventing

new operating language to access the alien system. In the process he crashes his office’s

Super Computer and is fired. Jon convinces the company to give Harry a second chance,

arguing that the system he has invented will make them millions.

Jon has no idea what havoc Harry is about to unleash.





About the Author:


Richard H. Hardy was born in Glasgow, Scotland, during a week of relentless bombing

raids just before the close of World War II. The day he was born an incendiary bomb fell

on the church across the street from where he lived, so he is fond of saying that he

entered the world with a big adrenaline rush.

His family later moved to England and then on to America.

After college Richard bounced through a series of temporary jobs as he traveled around

the country, wanting nothing more than to write fiction. A job driving a library van

allowed him free time to write several short stories and work on a novel.

He and his wife moved to New Hampshire, where he took an entry level job at a software

company. He was soon promoted to the technical writing department and ended up

producing over 500,000 words of online documentation. After a few years he was

promoted to the programming department and ended up as the Senior EDI Programmer,

creating EDI maps and writing UNIX scripts and troubleshooting on AIX systems

throughout the U.S. and Canada.

After he retired, he started writing fiction again. The Infinity Program is his first

published novel.

Book Review: Joy in Mudville


Joy in Mudville joins the story 24 hours after Mighty Casey struck out at the plate. But today was a new day and Casey hit a homer and was helping out the team.  But what about the relievers? It was either the noodle arm vet or the rookie.  The manager went with the rookie – Joy.  Not only was she a rookie – she was a GIRL!  The fans booed her and she knew that she would need to prove herself because she knew that she could do well and that girls can excel in sports.

While it seems that she had a different approach to pitching – her first pitch was football style, second tennis and 3rd basketball… and then she threw in a little soccer – it proved that she could be good at any sport!

I love the message here about girls playing ball.  Too many people still seem to think it’s just for guys and that is giving a bad message to young girls.  A great story.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

It had been only twenty-four hours since Mighty Casey struck out, plunging fans of the Mudville team into gloom and despair. But a new game day dawned, and Casey once again proved his might with a homer in the eighth. The Mudville nine took a one-run lead, but in the bottom of the ninth, their hurler walked three straight.

Bases loaded and the starting pitcher spent, the Mudville manager was not bullish about his bullpen. With the game on the line, he called for rookie Joy Armstrong to take the mound. Could she bring joy to Mudville again—and prove that a girl can play ball as well as any boy?
