Editorial Reviews

Review

"Independence Day meets Sliders. It's like the aliens from the 1950s are back, but this time they're terrifying. Non-stop action, an engaging cast, and a bonus twist that few debut books ever deliver: depth." -- Jefferson Smith, Immerse or Die reviewer and author of Brotherhood of Delinquents

From the Author

Several years ago, I wrote a two-thousand word short story about an alien invasion for some contest or other, called Once Upon the Dark Matter Highway. It was basically an extended joke with a punchline at the end. But almost everyone who read it asked, "So... what happens next?"

Although I hadn't had any intention of there being more, I found myself wondering the same thing. Where did these aliens come from? Why did they stop here? And most importantly: What would happen if the government found out about the little group that were taken and later returned?

That was when things began to take a more serious tone.

I've always been a fan of government coverup/conspiracy yarns. Capricorn One, Three Days of the Condor, and Firestarter are some of my all-time favorites. So when I began to contemplate a world trembling in the wake of a drive-by alien invasion, it seemed natural that the government would do anything to apprehend these people. Are they a threat? Monsters in human form, perhaps, or people impregnated with evil alien spawn? Do they have information that could help defend against a potential next wave?

I also like alternate universe/parallel timeline stories. And people with strange abilities. Tangential was my chance to roll all these good things into one relentless, page-turning thriller. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
