The year is 1956, and Jack is a good-natured, former juvenile delinquent who is great at fixing machines, particularly cars. One morning while out delivering papers, Jack notices a spaceship land in the woods. When a group of spider-like aliens attack his house and try to steal one of his uncle's inventions, chaos ensues. In the process, Jack, his uncle, Bud, the sheriff, the sheriff 's son, a scientist stranded in town while traveling, and her daughter are taken along with Bud's machine. The aliens have discovered that his uncle's machine is not a refrigerator but a dimensional field destabilizer, a device that can rip holes in space in order to venture wherever the traveler wants to go. With this device, the aliens hope to easily access Earth and destroy it. Will Jack and his companions escape in time to stop the aliens from destroying Earth? An action-packed science fiction adventure. The characters are entertaining and well-developed. The plot is gripping and fun to read. Readers who like aliens, science fiction, adventure, and apocalyptic stories will enjoy reading THE DOOM MACHINE.
