Omaha, NE, April 30, 2019 -- FTB Pathway Publications is proud to announce that Sci-Fi & Fantasy Author Matthew J Opdyke along with Narrator Graham Bessellieu have just released their first audiobook, "Further than Before: Pathway to the Stars, Part 1!"

This literary masterpiece is the very first original novel that launches the beginning of the giant Space Opera created by Sci-Fi Author Matthew J Opdyke.

Eliza Williams, Yesha Alevtina, James Cooper, Vesha Celeste, Sky Taylor, and a host of friendly heroes tackle some of the greatest dilemmas of the day to bring humanity out to the stars bearing a legacy we would be proud to share with other civilizations - a legacy of kindness, of mind-to-mind communication, of love, and of healing instead of harming. If we are to overcome the great expansion and the death of all life, we must overcome the smaller challenges in order to progress and focus on even greater ones. Eliza and her team work diligently to speed the pace of society in her world with the belief that beauty and untold potential are within every being, so if we find ways to bring that out in ourselves and others, we might just see a future where we can breed longevity, a collective and high quality of life, augment the clarity of our minds, and innovate to span the cosmos.

In a universe almost indistinguishable from our own, Eliza and a team within her organization, called Pathway, takes us on a fantastical and near-Utopian journey to get us out and into the furthest reaches of space, at least further than we have been before, in order to make this happen. There are countries, planets, and names very much like ours, yet sometimes they are a little different. There are musicians that inspire many of the characters quite similar and even identical in name, genre, and sound to our own. There are dilemmas such as the need for longevity and the ability to visit loved ones following long journeys, and there are many more that are similar to those we face, given the effects of space travel on our physiology and neurology. We journey as Eliza and her growing crew of friends are determined to overcome a rocky economy, undue suffering, violence, disease, terrorism, and trafficking in persons.

They work together to tame seismic activity, weather, and fires. She and her friends tackle ways to prevent extinction and provide solutions to quality of life concerns. They even consider the longevity of our Sun and our Earth's capacity to preserve life. Eliza tackles each of these issues to get us out and into the stars, so we can begin our biggest quest - to help our universe breathe ever so lightly, allowing it to expand and contract ever so gently, thereby preserving its life as well as all of life, allowing us to compound upon our mental capacity to achieve even more wisdom through intellect, experience, perspective, kindness, and graciousness.

For Eliza and her crew of friends, it is a race against time to meet new civilizations, preserve life, share our legacies, and go further than before!
