Science Fiction: Anomaly By Peter Cawdron

(Drivebycuriosity) - Imagine you are in the middle of Manhattan and something is not quite right, things are suddenly changing in an unexpected way. So starts the science fiction novel "Anomaly" by Peter Cawdron (amazon). New York City - and soon the whole world - is confronted with a strange phenomena  - the anomaly (this is a spoiler free blog)

"Anomaly" is hard science fiction in the tradition of Robert Heinlein. The novel is speculative but based on logic and on physics, chemistry, biology, evolution & other sciences. In the beginning it reads like a young adult novel because the plot focuses on an elementary school teacher who is explaining the observed phenomena to scientists & the media. But this idea gives the author the tools to describe what´s happening in an almost scientific way - and he does really a good job with that. I  refreshed my school knowledge and I learned a lot. Even though many strange things are happening the plot stays very plausible. I cared about the characters and enjoyed Cawdron`s clear style, the dramatic & thrilling events and a devoloping romance.

In the moment of writing the Kindle version of "Anomaly" cost just $4,99. Price & quality make this book a must for any connoisseur of real science fiction.

  1. Thank you for taking a chance on Anomaly. It was an interesting thought-experiment on just how different First Contact could be compared to the stereotypes of flying saucers and little green men.
