Bruce Wyndam, a young widower working as a materials engineer, is frustrated because his creativity is unappreciated by his boss Jerry Hopper. Then he accidentally discovers a remarkable metal alloy which appears to violate the laws of physics. Jerry's secretary Marilee sympathizes, but he can't get anyone else to listen until Harry, the company's PR man, eager to promote something new, arrives on the scene.Before Bruce realizes what's happening, Harry has arranged demonstrations and a press conference, leading to unrealistic claims for gravimetal. The media react unfavorably, and Bruce becomes the target of the resulting criticism. Nevertheless he persists and finally makes gravimetal a success.Reporter Joyce Allen is fascinated by Bruce and his creativity, and begins to send him notes and clippings about various applications, which include a flywheel-driven rail car. Bruce uses gravimetal in a toy train, and when conveyors fail and cause Jerry's bags to be delayed at the airport, an ideal application comes to light.Meanwhile, Bruce is slowly emerging from his shell and developing close relationships with Jerry's secretary Marilee as well as with Joyce. Rather than coping with loneliness, he is now faced with making a choice between two attractive women.Wilde, Leon is the author of 'Gravimetal Paradox', published 2004 under ISBN 9780595306381 and ISBN 0595306381.
