IT’S HERE!!! If you’ve read ALARUM then you’ll probably understand why readers put in a request for a novella to give us more time with Fury & Riker. And Talis delivered! Keep reading for more on the novella plus an excerpt!
If you haven’t read ALARUM yet then check out my post here to read more! I strongly suggest reading the novella after you’ve read the main book since this is a companion story that takes place within a 3-year gap of time and will definitely spoil things (and might not make quite as much sense) if you haven’t read the book first.  Continue reading

Fiction | Sci-Fi/Dystopia | Alternate History
4 StarsBlurb:

“Philip K. Dick’s acclaimed cult novel gives us a horrifying glimpse of an alternative world – one where the Allies have lost the Second World War. In this nightmare dystopia the Nazis have taken over New York, the Japanese control California and the African continent is virtually wiped out. In a neutral buffer zone in America that divides the world’s new rival superpowers, lives the author of an underground bestseller. His book offers a new vision of reality – an alternative theory of world history in which the Axis powers were defeated – giving hope to the disenchanted. Does ‘reality’ lie with him, or is his world just one among many others?”
