The eBook is a humorous SciFi yarn involving Earthling humans, faster than light (FTL) travel, and events on 2 planets. There's also a turkey baster, a mermaid, and jumping fish. Many oddball characters have a series of adventures as children and young adults. Xanth meets Discworld. All FTL travel incurs time warp. Time warp is the pimple on the ass of FTL travel.
Perpetual Twilight is a planet 4 light years from Earth. The planet doesn't rotate. The sunny side of the planet is a dessert. The dark side of the planet is covered with dense ice and snow. Between the dessert and the ice pack, a 500 mile swath of habitable area rings the planet. When viewed from anywhere in the habital area, the sun sits low in the sky. The sun position is reminiscent of twilight on Earth. Since the sun position never changes, the planet's habitable area seemingly has perpetual twilight.
If I could adequately describe the fun you will have reading Perpetual Twilight, surely you'd say 'I gotta get me some of that'.
