Amazon Best Seller Lists:
#1 in Science Fiction
#1 in Horror
#1 in Men's Adventure Fiction

 
"Bloodcurdling mix of science fiction and horror..." -BookBub
 
"AMAZING! 10 Stars! This book is a kick in the stomach to the Military/Syfy/Horror genre. Imagine if the best traits of Jonathon Maberry and Nicholas Sansbury Smith were combined into one author to write a book combining the best of the Alien and Predator movies and that is what you get here!!" -Ross Clevenger
 
"Combining sci-fi, horror and military-grade action in the same book - and doing it well - is a tall an order for many authors, but Ryan W. Aslesen delivers an undeniable knock-out with Existential. Aslesen knows precisely how to keep readers on the edge of their seats with his brand of uniquely visceral descriptions and a vocabulary for gore that would make John Carpenter proud. With one gut-shot moment after another, Existential is a thrilling start to a bold and brutal new series." Self-Publishing Review
 
"Aslesen is a must read if you like action thrillers."-C. Aparicio
 
"Absolutely the most exciting sci-fi read... EVER!!! Highly recommended for it's fast pace and nearly non stop action scenes...Heart thumping read!" - Pennie Collins
 
"An amazing gory emotional rollercoaster." -Jessica Smith
 
"Mr. Aslesen has an honored past as a veteran and a bright future as a writer. I would recommend his work to anyone who enjoys reading. His knowledge of firearms and tactics is accurate and detailed by someone who knows his subject matter. Sci-Fi horror at it's finest..." -Mark Land
 
"It was really refreshing to read something that blended both sci-fi and horror so seamlessly. It doesn't feel like just one or the other, which I love. You get the best of both worlds. The creativeness to merge these genres, along with the ingenious storytelling, makes Ryan Aslesen a writer to keep your eye on in the future." -Tybud
 
"Tom Clancy style special forces meets John Carpenter's "The Thing". An incredible first book from Mr.Aslesen, Existential is an action-packed novel from beginning to end." - Allen Nash
 
"An Epic Tale, Wonderfully Told!" -Peyton
 
"I've always enjoyed both the story of modern warriors and science fiction. This book combined both, something I've never seen done much less done so well. I couldn't put this book down!"-Rich
