Product Description

Soldiers, scientists, and rednecks take on biomechanical aliens in a fight to take back a post-apocalyptic America when Amazon Bestselling author Michael Angel presents a brand sci-fi serial: The 'Strangelets' Series.

After the original short story spent 24+ months on Amazon's Top 100 Lists, Strangelets with a Side of Grilled Spam: Season One takes us through the entire post-apocalyptic saga.

The search for the mysterious subatomic particle called the strangelet has led to the destruction of the world as we know it. A supercollider accident cracks open thousand-mile rifts in space-time and unleashes a massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that burns out electronics across the Earth. Millions of biomechanical aliens cross the gap between worlds and begin a massive attack.

Later, survivors would call the aliens 'steelies' and the event 'Day Zero.' Lieutenant MacWilliams and Private Graves survive the initial invasion wave that hits at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. MacWilliams' commanding officer orders him to evade the enemy and protect physics Professor Norbett. The three men cross a shattered America in a souped-up Humvee while rallying what survivors remain with their daily radio reports.

Three years go by until the group gets their first ray of hope. MacWilliams comes across something that could turn the tide at a refugee settlement set inside the Kansas 'Big Box Mart' outlet store. It falls to him and his crew to get the word out across a land choked with post-apocalyptic wreckage and teeming with deadly alien monsters.

They face a journey full of steelie hunter-killers, vision-shrouding sand storms, and nightmare plains turned to radioactive slag by nuclear fallout.

And at the end looms their final confrontation with a horde of aliens set to wipe out what's left of the human species!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for every reader 22 July 2013
By Gerald M. Weinberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
How good is Michael Angel's Strangelets...? Here's what it did to me:

I was reading the latest Jack Reacher novel when I received a tweet announcing the publication of Strangelets with a Side of Grilled Spam. I had read and loved several of Michael's stories (Adventures of Amanda Love and The Detective and the Unicorn), so I interrupted my reading for a moment to take a look at a sample of Strangelets...

I never got back to Jack Reacher, not until I'd read all four volumes of Strangelets... It's the kind of fascinating science fiction that satisfies an entire spectrum of fandom. There's aliens, of course, but their half bio and have mecho. There's warfare, but the humans are losing and very much on the brink of extinction. There's plenty of brand new, innovative near-future tech, and not just weapons.

But that's not all. We meet an artificial intelligence with personality and a heart, and she's not the only romantic element. There's scientists whose experiments start all the trouble then struggle to contain it, military brass both good and bad, and non-commissioned grunts whose dirty hands win real wars.

There's movement, lots of movement. The heroes move physically around the familiar Midwest, which as been transformed into a most unfamiliar and deadly wasteland. They also move intellectually, as they attempt desperately to understand these most puzzling of aliens. And, best of all, as my "moment to look at a sample" shows, the story moves the reader-right out of the present into a future whose outcome is always in doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quick-paced story. 22 July 2013
By Susan Wingate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Michael Angel creates a world so visceral I became lost in the story. The characters are deep, in danger and you want to stick your hand into the story and pull them out of the mess they're in. Action-packed, emotional with an ending so great you'll need a paper bag to breathe into. Great read. Don't dilly-dally about buying your copy today.

4.0 out of 5 stars An action-packed sci-fi story that is sure to have you gripping the pages tightly! 18 July 2013
By Lucinda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Totally unexpected and spectacular this post-apocalyptic/ paranormal novella was surprisingly exciting. Set within a unique world filled with deadly `steelies' and wreckage, is a heart pounding adventure just waiting to begin. Lieutenant MacWilliams and his crew travel across America fighting for their lives, spreading the word about something that brings hope. The past history is explained clearly so that you gain an insight into what happened, as you examine this harsh outcome of the cataclysm. Character-driven and full of dry humor and wit this enjoyable, compelling read is totally engaging.

Brought to mind instantly was "The war of the worlds" as the author captures that chilling fear of danger in every page, with alien enemies that cause such destruction. This is a very short book which only took me several hours to read, as something `light' and quick. My only disappointment was that I felt it could have been longer ~ the author could have written about the events before in more depth, hence adding to the unfolding drama that you read about. I did feel that I was jolted a bit too suddenly into the action and into this world; a story that I would have liked expanded to expose even more of the author's inspired vision.

As a fan of science-fiction I was greatly impressed by this explosive story that exceeded and surpassed all my expectations. For those avid readers of this genre I would highly recommend this fantastic tale.

*I won a copy of "Strangelets with a side of grilled spam: episode one" by Michael Angel through a Goodreads, First-Read giveaway.*
