Day After Infinity, a high-paced space adventure, asks the question, "What is the meaning of self?" Ryan Char boards the first colony ship to Tau Ceti as a lowly crew member but soon learns he was selected for very specific reasons: he heals faster than anyone in the solar system. His job is to save his ship in the unlikely case of disaster. With a snarky AI implant, a doubting captain, and Murphy’s relentless law, he finds himself in harsh circumstances that force him to adapt.
