Snippet from Book

ÖA massive explosion ripped the bulkhead hatch apart. Flaming shards of jagged debris tore across the control room.

The guard rushing towards the dais was torn apart by shrapnel. His tattered torso slammed into the Praetor knocking her to the deck, stunned.

Technicians that were still up leapt towards the weapons arranged neatly in their racks.

The racks were next to the door.

Acintic bolts ripped the smoking haze that filled the room. Shadowy forms sprang through the shattered bulkhead ...

About This Great Book

A crack team of explorers find themselves, in the words of one their number, "stark naked, in the dark, and totally clueless." Buried deep beneath an Earth shattered by war, devastated by disease, and ravaged by alien monsters.

The remnants of the team make their way to the surface, where they find that the familiar vistas of their home world have been replaced by howling wilderness, and creature-stalked ruins.

Making use of their full arsenal of low cunning, courage and sheer chutzpah, they survive. They soon discover Alien invaders continue their slow, inexorable conquest of the planet. And that remnants of humanity continue to be locked in a struggle between the half-human "Abataurum" overlords and the scattered descendants of Earth's military.

Eventually making contact with the resistance, they find that the old rules and struggles of love and honor, mendacity and treachery, still apply.

Finally, having earned a bloody place among the veterans, they launch a strike against the overlords and their minions, teaching them the true meaning of modern war.

From A Review

Well done and believable debut sci-fi novel.

If you like aliens, dialog and action, you'll enjoy this unique story about a possible future. Maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about surviving an alien invasion...

A great read and a lot of fun. Recommended.

From The Author

I'm a 40+ year-old former Army Counterintelligence Agent. While I did include many experiences and insights in my work, I had to settle for writing a Science Fiction Adventure. Anything else might have led to the inadvertent disclosure of classified information.

However, I will let you know that my analysis of first-time writers indicated that CONTROVERSY is a primary factor in the success of a first-time work. Well, let's just say that I did include verifiably UNCLASSIFIED material, which should raise some eyebrows.
