Something About the Joy is a blog to introduce the novel I've written: "Zinovy's Journey"--a journey to a new earth, a new life, a new joy.
Zinovy is a 45-year-old Russian cosmonaut at the peak of his career with a price on his head. His superiors want to kill him, and there's no place to hide on an international space station. As he dodges assasination attempts, he and his fellow astronauts prepare to return to Canaveral. But before their preparations are finished, the earth is destroyed in a nuclear holocaust.
Zinovy and his friends have a choice. They can remain on the station and die when their supplies run out, or they can return to the earth and die in the radiation. This is the first of many life-changing choices they will be forced to make in the days to come. One of those choices starts them on a journey that will lead to death for some, and an incredibly wonderful life for others. For Zinovy, the journey will lead to joy.
