Raleigh Redman loved Nicci Charbon until she left him heartbroken. Then he hit the lotto for twenty-four million dollars, quit his minimum-wage job, and set his sights on one goal: reading the entire collection of lectures in the Popular Educator Library. As Raleigh is trudging through the eighth volume, he notices something in his apartment that at first seems ordinary but quickly reveals itself to be from a world very different from our own. This entity shows Raleigh joy beyond the comforts of twenty-four million dollars … and merges our world with those that live beyond.


Hogarth “Trent” Tryman is a forty-two-year-old man working a dead-end data-entry job. Though he lives alone and has no real friends besides his mother, he’s grown quite content in his quiet life, burning away time with television, the Internet, and video games. That all changes the night he receives a bizarre instant message. At first he thinks it’s a joke, but in just a matter of days Hogarth Tryman goes from a data-entry clerk to the head of a corporation. His fate is now in very powerful hands as he realizes he has become a pawn in a much larger game with unimaginable stakes.

    " Well two very similar premises with Merge being the more unsettling. Merge was the better of the two because of how out there it got and really painted humanity and a terrible light especially towards the climax. IT has undertones of some of Octavia Butler's works. "

    " Apocalyptic thrillers. Loved them both. Love what he did central characters from both novels. Losers who come across new money and how they manage to keep it from corrupting them "

    " I am a sucker for anything i think is written from a theoretical physics, cosmology, Buddhist, meditative point of view. "

    " My favorite author. My least favorite work of his, yet I could not put the books down. It is science fiction and a very shocking ride into the genre. "
