Reviewed by Carol Coetzee for Readers' Favorite Linchpin by David K. Brown is an interesting take on sci-fi. Marvin, or Coffee to his friends, is living the "good life" with a steady job, gorgeous girlfriend, and great flat mates Jay and Tony. One day, Marvin has a strange "episode" which leaves him unconscious for a while. When he awakens, he is fearful and disoriented, as his friends stare at him strangely and wonder if he took something "weird." Marvin has had a vision of an alien device and where it is hidden. He now needs to find the exact place he was shown to retrieve it. He becomes totally obsessed with finding the device and, once he has it, his obsession extends to understanding the text-like characters, causing him to isolate himself to do so in secret. His whole life begins to change as he loses his friends and his girlfriend to his obsession. Linchpin by David K. Brown is an immensely enjoyable story. The theme of aliens is taken on a completely new journey from the standard genre of first contact with alien beings. It is compelling and has an immensely interesting twist on alien/human interaction and how they may attempt contact in different ways. The underlying motive as to who and why the aliens have made contact with Marvin, and what they hope to achieve, remains a question throughout Linchpin. The characters are well developed and it feels as if you are going through this experience with Marvin, feeling it from his perspective. David K. Brown takes you on an interesting and strange journey, which begs a sequel. I hope this follows soon!
