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.
Mistress of Molecules
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.
