Maelstrom by Peter Cawdron, A book review

The teaser for Maelstrom, by Peter Cawdron reads as follows:

“Tunguska, Roswell, the Bermuda Triangle, the Mary Celeste… For hundreds of years, the danger posed by colliding worlds has been ignored as a crackpot theory, until now, and now it’s too late.

Maelstrom contains three novellas set in the Colliding Worlds universe (Collision, Impact and the conclusion, Maelstrom). Collision was commissioned by Vanquish Motion Pictures for possible development in film or on television.”

Maelstrom on Amazon.

Even though I’ve enjoyed many of Cawdron’s books, it’s been a while since I picked up a book by Peter Cawdron and I am glad a snagged this dinosaur stomping time adventure! Or… is it a parallel world adventure?

Books by Peter Cawdron.

Maelstrom starts out as a curious medical mystery of a sorts in a hospital in China, where an odd, large mute of a man is trying to get medical help for what would appear to be his father. But without words, and a closed-minded perspective about “his people” from the locals, it’s a brawl that breaks out instead, with local security and hospital guards being littered all over the lobby.

Until one doctor steps up with compassion and understanding, and helps this “man” with the medical needs of his father.Β But this doctor sees beyond the obvious and takes note that this is no regular “man,” and after some tests and deduction, realizes she is looking at an amazing scientific curiosity, a man out of time.

January 27, 2014

Xenophobia, by Peter Cawdron, is the tale of first contact and just how well or poorly humanity handles the situation.  And to be honest, I see this tale from Peter Cawdron as a pretty insightful prediction of just how first contact could go down, if it were to happen.
