Overview

An extraterrestrial mistake, a controlled space warp left open a fraction too long, a Wyoming hiker unknowingly walks into another world. His surprised and reluctant hosts not only have him to contend with, but they must also head off a potential disaster on earth as his lover pushes local authorities into a desperate search.

Alien explorers are studying Earth, moving to and from their planet through a controlled space warp exiting into the Wyoming wilderness. Mark Carter inadvertently enters the warp and is propelled to their world. His surprised hosts resent the intrusion. While awaiting a decision on what to do with him, Mark is introduced to an "experience-sharing" machine, a form of virtual reality that captures snatches of alien life then permits others to live them as if first hand. But unknown to the aliens, the process stimulates Mark's mind. He learns to communicate mentally, manipulate objects remotely, even rearrange his DNA to imitate other creatures. Mark's lover, thinking Mark is lost, travels to Wyoming and there goads the authorities into a search. Because the aliens are simultaneously attempting to learn about Mark's life on Earth, her involvement steadily deepens.

    highly recommend

    One of the most imaginative books I have read. The writer has an awesome imagination..truly transports the reader to being a part of the story. Wish I had the powers of the main character. Quick read and utterly engrossing...you won't be able to put it down until completion

    Excellent Sci-fi

    This is the second novel I have read by this author. The first was Circle of Distrust, and I enjoyed it immensely. This one is more like their short stories (which are all science fiction), and to me, who enjoys a good story along with their sci-fi, it was even more enjoyable. It had everything, suspense, humor, sex, and some great futuristic concepts.
